The German Football League has reacted with relief to the further easing of audience restrictions announced by the Federation and countries.
“The decision offers an opening perspective – and is therefore the next step out of the pandemic to greet the normality very much. We assume that also upper limits for spectators and spectators are eliminated in the foreseeable future,” said DFL managing director Donata Hops.
Confederation and countries had decided on Wednesday that from 4 March, from 4 March, up to 25,000 spectators at a maximum capacity of 75 percent of total capacity in the stadium are allowed. In halls, a maximum of 6000 spectators may be admitted at most 60 percent capacity utilization. From 20 March, all profound protective measures against the coronavirus should be omitted.
“Like cultural events and other Donata Hopss, football stands for social cooperation. We hope that these community experiences will soon be possible again without restrictions,” said hops.
