Tunisia’s youth and sports ministry has authorized 25,000 spectators to attend the African Champions League semifinal return match for Esperance Sportive de Tunis against Congo’s T. P Mazembe, Mosaique FM reported on Wednesday.
The match is due to be played in Rades near Tunis next week. At full capacity, Rades can hold some 60,000 spectators.
The first leg match between both teams played in Lubumbashi on October 7, ended in a goalless draw.
Since the 2011 uprising against Ben Ali’s regime, all Tunisian league matches, as well as international matches, have been played behind closed doors to prevent spectator violence in stadiums.
