The Allianz Arena reopens its doors despite outbreaks

Two days to receive Schalke 04 in what will be the start of the 20/21 season in the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich finally won the permission to reopen the doors of the Allianz Arena half a year later. The prime ministers of the federal states had agreed last Tuesday a joint regulation, according to which the readmission of the public was allowed in the stadiums of the highest German competition up to 20 percent of the total capacity. Of course, the reopening of the fiefdoms would be linked, in any case, to the evolution of the pandemic; and in Munich, at the moment, it is not favorable.

The weekly incidence per 100,000 inhabitants on Wednesday exceeded 45 positives in the capital of Bavaria, which places it ten cases above the limit imposed by the regional political representatives. Of course, the fans of the brand-new triple champion maintained the hope of being able to return to the rojiblanco fiefdom after a statement by Markus Söder, Prime Minister of the Land of Bavaria, in which he hinted that the capacity could be limited even more in case of that the numbers will not drop until Friday. And so it was: as the BR television network advances, 7,500 fans will be able to enter, a figure equivalent to 10 percent of the 75,000 that the Allianz hosts.

The club itself was forced to wait for instructions from the political authorities and the health ministry, but had already made it clear in advance that it would be able to organize its league debut against Schalke in the short term. “We are able to do it at all times “, reported Bayern, which has a stadium that meets all the requirements demanded by the health plan drawn up by the competition body and that, finally, ended up receiving the go-ahead from politicians.
