Come September 1st, and more than 1,000 people will be permitted to attend major events of course with the proviso that contact tracking is ensured. This was announced by Saxony’s (Germany) Minister of Health Petra Köpping.

As per the Minister of Health, it will not be a scenario of full stadiums, but more than 1,000 fans will be allowed entry. Spectators will be allowed again in mass sports from July 18.

In football leagues, fans will be allowed from September – RB Leipzig (Bundesliga), Erzgebirge Aue (2nd Bundesliga) as well as FSV Zwickau and Dynamo Dresden (both 3rd division).

Bundesliga is a professional association football league in Germany. At the top of the German football league system, the Bundesliga is Germany’s primary football competition.

German professional football club based in Leipzig, Saxony, RB Leipzig, has already developed an approved hygiene concept. The Leipzig Health Department informed, “RB Leipzig has presented a hygiene concept which, from the Health Office’s perspective, is viable and suitable for significantly reducing the infection rate. For this reason, the Health Department has confirmed RB Leipzig’s hygiene concept.”

Once the powers that be give their nod, the hygiene concept of the club will be put into effect.

Saxony continues to ease COVID-19 rules. Though there is no upper limit on fans to be allowed in stadia, nevertheless, strict safety and hygiene measures will be in place.

Though staunch supporters of RB Leipzig could go back to the venue, “but only if you can reach an agreement with the DFB and everyone else involved,” added a spokeswoman for Köpping.

Köpping added, “Not yet full stadiums, but more than 1000 spectators are possible. But, if possible, avoid calling, singing and screaming.”

The German Football Association (DFB) is the governing body of football in Germany. A founding member of FIFA and UEFA, the DFB has jurisdiction for the German football league system and is in charge of the men’s and women’s national teams. The DFB headquarters are in Frankfurt am Main.

Though Saxony is loosening up, but, according to the Robert Koch Institute, 5,459 people (as of July 7, 2020) have been infected with the deadly coronavirus since the pandemic broke out.
