Poland becomes first country to allow football supporters attend matches amid covid-19 pandemic
London, May 29, 2020 (AltAfrica)-Polish football supporters will be able to attend matches from June 19, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Friday
He however said only 25 percent of the capacity of stadiums would be used in order to prevent the coronavirus from spreading
“The Polish Football Association and the Premier League have chosen the 19th, so it will be possible to prepare everything according to the correct procedures,” Morawiecki said.
The country has 174,098 confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 7,861 deaths, according to the latest figures, but Germany’s Football Association (DFB) has worked closely with league organizers (DFL) and hope strict safety protocols will protect those involved when matches are played.
Spain’s La Liga will resume on 11 June with next season starting on 12 September, says the league’s president Javier Tebas.
On Monday, Tebas said a behind closed doors derby between Real Betis and Sevilla could restart the campaign.
The Premier League season is set to restart on 17 June with Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal, the BBC has learned.
A full round of fixtures would then be played on the weekend of 19-21 June but all behind close door
