Bundesliga club Union Berlin is sticking to its plans to play in a full stadium again without a distance rule. This idea still exists, “that is our main topic that we are concerned with in the association,” said Union President Dirk Zingler on ARD radio: “We have new offers for quick tests that we will present to politicians and authorities. , and then we hope it gets 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’s defeat against FC Augsburg (1: 3). The stadium at the Alte Försterei offers a total of 22,012 seats.
