Bundesliga club Union Berlin is sticking to plans to play in a packed stadium again without a distance rule, although the number of new corona infections in Berlin is increasing sharply. This idea still persists, “that is our main topic we are dealing with in the association,” said Union President Dirk Zingler on ARD radio: “We have new offers for quick tests that we will be presenting to politicians and the government. authorities, and then we hope it will be approved. “
Zingler confirmed that the association wanted to “hold an event without interruption and with preventive tests” on October 25.
He explained, “Distance soccer with mask doesn’t work. We need to find event formats that don’t require a distance. That’s why we’re going to work intensively on using preventative tests to get people back to events without distance.”
Last Saturday 4,600 spectators were admitted to the Union defeat against FC Augsburg (1: 3). The stadium at the Alte Försterei offers a total of 22,012 seats.
