Coronavirus pandemic: opinions divided on fans’ return to football stadiums

Frankfurt / Main – Public opinion on the return of football fans to stadiums for the start of the Bundesliga in mid-September is divided.

In a representative survey carried out by the opinion research institute YouGov on behalf of the German News Agency, 45% of respondents in 2018 supported the partial admissions of viewers planned by the German Football League from day one of the match – only 9%, however, unqualified. 36% find that the partial admission of viewers is only correct if the hygiene measures are strictly controlled. 44% of survey participants spoke out against the games in front of a general audience, which was also advocated by the conference of health ministers from Monday at least until October 31. Ten percent didn’t want to get involved.

In a YouGov poll at the end of May, 47% were against resuming Bundesliga operations. At the time, only 29% were in favor of continuing the season, which ended without spectators.

The 2020/21 season in Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 begins on the third weekend of September. The first round of the DFB Cup is scheduled a week earlier. The DFL concept foresees an initially reduced return of fans without standing, alcohol and guest fans. Tickets should only be issued on a personalized basis. This is aimed at reducing the risk of infection during the corona pandemic.
