UEFA clears fans to return, capacity limit set at 30 per cent

UEFA has given the green light for a partial return of fans at matches, starting with International games next week.

 

The governing body on Thursday announced that stadiums will be allowed to let supporters in for UEFA fixtures, though there will be a limit of 30 per cent of stadium capacity set.

No away support will be permitted to attend until further notice and gates will only be opened if allowed under local rules.

The UEFA executive committee made the decision after a successful pilot at the Super Cup between Bayern Munich and Sevilla in Budapest on September 24.

Social distancing will be mandatory for fans and precautionary measures such as wearing masks will be required in accordance with local regulations amid the coronavirus pandemic.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: “Today’s decision is a sensible first step which puts fans’ health first and respects the laws in each country.
