German Club Plans Mass Virus Testing To Fill Stadium Again

- Dec 02, 2020-

The Bundesliga club will offer testing ahead of each game to 22,012 fans — the stadium’s official capacity — and club staff, Union said Friday night. Each person must test negative for the virus within 24 hours of kickoff and bring confirmation along with a ticket, the club added.


Union wants to implement the plan in time for the first home league game of the new season, which could be as soon as Sept. 18. Other clubs have experimented with socially distanced seating plans, but more than 80% of the capacity at Union’s stadium consists of terraces where fans stand close together.
