Home Sports 40% fully-vaccinated fans to attend West Indies-Pakistan T20Is at Providence
– commencement of ticket sales at GCB office unconfirmed
A total of 40 per cent capacity fully-vaccinated fans will be allowed to attend the West Indies and Pakistan T20 Internationals on July 31 and August 1 and 3 respectively at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence. This was confirmed by the Culture, Youth and Sport Ministry and the Health Ministry.
Tickets will be sold at the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) office on Regent Street, but the date of commencement of ticket sales is still not yet confirmed. The last time Guyanese witnessed international cricket at Providence was when West Indies played India in a T20I back in August 2019. Fully-vaccinated fans are those who have received their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine two weeks before the date of the matches.
Spectators would be required to wear face masks throughout these matches, and must present their national identification card and vaccination documentation upon arrival for admission to the venue.
Officials of the Health Ministry and the National COVID-19 Task Force would be present to verify vaccination documentation. Tickets will be available for the three stands (Green, red, orange) only. No tickets would be made available for the grass mound, where there is a no-entry policy.
Like in other countries in the West Indies that saw the return of fans, persons under age 18 years would not be allowed entry, while a no re-entry policy would be in effect.
Other measures implemented for the three match days:
Concession stands are not allowed, but persons will be roving to sell beverages
Glass bottles of any kind are not allowed
No firearms, knives, or sharp metal objects are permitted
Tickets are US$20/G$4000 for each match. Stadium gates would be open at 07:30h to facilitate early admission and prevent congestion.
