Tunisia to open league behind closed doors
Tunisia’s football season will kick off on September 15 behind closed doors for security reasons but will be open to the public as from the second match day, the Football Federation said on Wednesday in Tunis.
After a meeting between the FA and the Ministry of Sports on Tuesday, the clubs participating in the top divisions were authorised to open their facilities to supporters.
The Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup matches taking place next weekend in Tunisia will also be opened to the public, according to officials.
The Interior Ministry earlier ordered all football clubs in the country not to open their stadiums to supporters until further notice.
The measure was meant to minimise risks of confrontations between anti and pro-government supporters in the wake of the assassination of opposition leader Mohamed Brahmi in July.
