in England The British government announced in February that it would ease strict restrictions and closures due to the coronavirus epidemic in four steps. It is planned that in the third phase, from 17 May, the number of spectators could reach 10,000 spectators or a quarter of the crowd capacity in the stadiums, whichever is smaller.
“Hopefully in the last two rounds of the season, there can be up to 10,000 spectators in the stadiums. It will be a great finale at the end of the season.” Richard Masters said.
According to the CEO, by the end of the season, the Premier League will lose £ 2bn in the Premier League as clubs lose their matchday revenue due to the goalkeeper matches closed and the lack of money from TV companies.
The Masters stated that if the UK vaccination program goes according to plan, football could return to normal as usual next season.
“Our goal is to have a full house in the stadiums again from the start of next season, and the government’s schedule allows for that.” It is to explain.
at the same time In Germany Hans-Joachim Fatsk, managing director of Borussia Dortmund football club, has called for the German Cup Final to be held in front of the spectators.
In an interview in the Saturday issue of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Watzke suggested that only spectators who were vaccinated against the Coronavirus should be present at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium on May 13, but admitted for free.
In his opinion, there could be 10-15 thousand people in the stands. He added that there is nothing against a pilot project of this kind.
“Firstly, it would be a nice gesture, secondly it would be incredibly good for the atmosphere of the match, and thirdly it would bring the community a little together.” Watzke argued.
In the German Cup semi-finals, Borussia Dortmund will meet with Holstein Kiel, second-tier team. On the other branch is Peter Goulaxi, Willie Urban and Dominic Zoboszlai, RB Leipzig, whose opponent will be Werder Bremen or SSV Jan Regensburg in the second division.
