500 supporters will stand behind the Egyptian national football team, the Pharaohs, when they play Ghana in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers' playoff on 15 October in Kumasi, Ghana.

"The government and the Ghanian FA have secured places for at least 500 Egypt fans expected at the 50,000-seat Baba Yara Stadium and they will be confined to one place to ensure that they are fully protected during their visit to Kumasi," the Ghanaian Football Associations said on its official website.

Egypt is scheduled to host the Ghanaians at Cairo's Air Defence stadium for the second half of the game on 19 November.

Fans will again be allowed to attend the match after being banned from recent matches due to security concerns.

The Pharaohs are eyeing their first World Cup appearance since 1990, while Ghana is hoping to reach the World Cup finals for the third time.
