It is a common practice for human beings who travel across the world for sports, business or other events to want to experiment and try new things including getting to know new Women.
At the ongoing African Nations championship, (CHAN) tournament in Algeria, events are different. In the freezing temperatures across the cities hosting the competition, supporters who had a greater range of options have to do without a major resort.
Male supporters who walk through the streets of Algiers, Annaba, Oran and Constantine come across hundreds of beautiful young girls, and that’s their limit.
Algeria is one of the largest countries on the continent, and also very welcoming to strangers. Through it’s streets are Ghanaians, Sudanese, Kenyans, Nigerians and others.
However, the country has very strict restrictions when it comes to relationships out of marriage. Just like in many Arab countries and decent societies, Algeria with a population of 44 Million people frowns at relationships out of marriage whether for nationals or visitors.
These restriction means CHAN 2022 football supporters from the 17 participating nations in Algeria are not allowed access to Algerian women except they are officially married.
“With this cold in this country and the restriction one can die easily, that’s why I have decided to leave immediately after my country was eliminated,” a fan whose identity we opted to retain said in a casual conversation with one of our reporters just before departure through the Houari Boumediene International Airport in Algiers.
Though the policy has not been welcomed by lay supporters, the move is welcomed by the Confederation of African Football, at least going by its decision to sanction a staff who went overboard by outright dismissal.
Contrary to the case elsewhere, other aspects of tournament distractions to fans on match days and non match days like Cigarettes, Alcohol, Clubbing and more are allowed in Algeria, though with some restrictions too in public spaces. Fans in Algiers, Annaba, Constantine and Oran have resorted to these plus the beautiful football matches to make their stay in the country of the Desert Foxes memorable – in line with the adage “if you go to Rome do what the Romans do’.
The tournament enters its business end this Tuesday as the Desert Foxes Algeria log horns with the Menas of Niger in the first semi-final at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium in Oran while the Berea of Madagascar in their debut tournament confront the Teranga Lions of Senegal in the other semi at the Nelson Mandela stadium in Baraki, Algiers.
Whatever be the results of the matches this popular Algerian policy to promote moral uprightness has also kept many talking and won the hearts of those with good moral values.
