25 percent crowd will be allowed during HBL PSL 7 in Karachi: NCOC

ISLAMABAD: National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) has reviewed the COVID-19 situation in Karachi and decided to allow only 25 percent crowd during HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 7 in National Stadium Karachi (NSK). 

According to the details, NCOC sent a letter to PCB and the provincial government, directing the percentage of people who will be allowed to attend HBL PSL 7 matches in NSK. 25 percent means 8,000 spectators will be allowed in each match of HBL PSL 7’s Karachi leg.

PCB Chief Operating Officer and HBL PSL Tournament Director Salman Naseer: “Spectators are the essence of any sport event and in this background, we now hope to set the stage with 25 per cent crowds to attend the Karachi matches of the HBL PSL 2022.

“As a responsible organisation, we completely understand our obligations in relation to health and safety of the fans and will leave no stone unturned in strictly implementing the NCOC guidelines,

“However, we will also require complete and unconditional support from the spectators so that they and others can continue to enjoy the matches in a safe and secure environment. This is something they can do by simply following the guidelines.”

The decision regarding Lahore-leg of HBL PSL will be taken in first week of February.
