Berlin (dpa) – The Super Cup location in Budapest for the match between the Champions League winner FC Bayern Munich and the Europa League winner FC Sevilla has been declared a risk area by the federal government.
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), which is owned by the federal government, has published an updated list of corona risk areas, including the Hungarian capital. A travel warning was issued accordingly.
What this means for the meeting on September 24 was initially unclear. According to plans by the European Football Association, spectators should be allowed into the Puskás Arena. According to the association, 30 percent of the stadium’s capacity, which seats approximately 67,000 spectators, is used. Both teams are each entitled to 3000 tickets.
The central criterion for classification as an at-risk area is in which states or regions there have been more than 50 new infected people per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days.
Hungary had also tightened its protective measures out of concern about the further spread of the corona virus. A border block for foreigners came into effect on 1 September: exceptions apply to diplomats and business travelers. In Hungary, the number of infections with the Sars-CoV-2 virus has risen sharply.
