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).

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.”
