- BVB-Boss Watzke sees “step in the right direction”
- New regulation “Starting point of a dynamic development”?
- Strict corona rules in the stadiums
The patched carpet has been exhausted, a little atmosphere returns to all arenas: the spectator specifications for the stadiums and halls of the profile people should be regulated uniformly in the future nationwide in the future.
The state governments have agreed that the capacity outdoors may be used at a maximum of 50 percent – but tastes with 10,000 visitors. In halls, a maximum of 30 percent is allowed, at most 4,000 spectators.
BVB-Boss Watzke sees “step in the right direction”
“This is a good first step in the right direction,” CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke commented from the Football Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund to the “SID” the decision, with which the countries with the prescription of their summit to the Corona pandemic with the federal government of 24, January.
At that time, it was noted that a uniform regulation should be made until the 9th of February.
Most recently, numerous countries had already taken decisions that the now applicable uniform regulation have come very close.
North Rhine-Westphalia did not belong to that, therefore, three Bundesliga (BVB, 1. FC Cologne, Arminia Bielefeld) had the previously valid upper limit of 750 spectators. Given the new rules, which are now also valid in NRW, FC will forego the legal examination.
New regulation “Starting point of a dynamic development”?
“We now hope that this limitation on 10,000 fans is the starting point of a dynamic development in the coming weeks,” said Cologne’s Financial Managing Director Alexander Wehrle: “We continue to convince that events in the open sky also in large stages with at least 50 percent Utilization are reasonable. “
Although incidence is now climbed over the 1200 brand and warn experts from rapid relaxation, the professional port has reached an important milestone through the binding decision of the state and senate law firms.

With the now applicable regulation, however, duties are also accompanied. So wearing “at least one medical mask” is compulsory. In addition, “the basis of the respective country regulations for protective and hygiene concepts, inlet management and spacers and other protective measures” should be made.
