Uefa have announced that they will utilise the European Super Cup as a test run to allow fans back into the stadium for the first time since coronavirus struck.
Various league bodies are weighing up when they will start to tentatively allow supporters to be back in attendance.
And Uefa have decided to use the event between Bayern Munich and Sevilla on 24 September in Budapest as the first opportunity to test the impact of spectators coming into the stadium.
Uefa also confirmed that a maximum of 30% of the stadium will be allowed to be filled, as part of the Return to Play Protocol.
Uefa also confirmed that all other official competition matches will remain behind closed doors, with no plans to reintroduce fans into the stadium for the Champions League or Europa League as of yet.
Uefa president, Aleksander Ceferin, said of the announcement:
“While it has been important to show that football can carry on in difficult times, without fans, the game has lost something of its character. We hope to use the Uefa Super Cup in Budapest as a pilot that will begin to see the return of fans to our matches.
“We are working closely with the Hungarian Federation and its government to implement measures to ensure the health of all those attending and participating in the game. We will not take risks with people’s safety.”
