July 8 – German authorities have green lighted the return of fans to next’s season Bundesliga with the total number of supporters per match capped at 25,000.
The new Bundesliga season kicks off on August 13 and with Germany largely containing the coronavirus pandemic, spectators will be allowed to attend topflight matches again after the last iteration was played largely behind closed doors.
In Munich, which played host to four Euro 2020 matches at a very restricted capacity,a maximum of just 20,000 fans will be permitted because Bavarian authorities impose more stringent restrictions.
The new rules will apply until September 11 with the proviso that the Covid infections rates must not exceed 35 new infections per 100,000 people over the previous seven days. If that happens capacity will be scaled down to a maximum of 5,000 fans.
Fans will have to proof full vaccination or provide a negative PCR test to get admitted to the ground.
