RB Leipzig plan to allow fans to attend first home game of the season

RB Leipzig have confirmed that they plan to allow an attendance of around 8,500 for their home game against Mainz 05 on September 20.

“After discussion with the DFL, the decision was taken to implement the concept. A decisive factor for the implementation remains at all times the regional infection levels, which must be permanently reassessed in correspondence with the public health department of Leipzig,” the Bundesliga club tweeted.

“New protection measures against the coronavirus came into effect in Saxony on 1st September. On the basis of these, the associated implementation provisions and the hygiene concept for home games, the proposal was approved by the public health department of Leipzig on Tuesday.”
