Large crowds are expected in the capital Dakar to watch the Senegalese national team play in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) final on Friday, July 19. The match is being held in Egypt, but gatherings and events were held in the capital during the semi-final on July 14, which resulted in mass celebrations and traffic disruptions throughout the city. Screenings of the final may be held in public areas, along with associated celebrations if Senegal wins the match. A heightened security presence is anticipated in Dakar along with localized traffic disruptions around related events.
Individuals in Dakar, and Senegal more generally, are advised to keep abreast of the situation, avoid public gatherings as a precaution, anticipate localized transportation disruptions and crowded conditions near potential celebrations, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
