Since mid-May, the vacuum in the stands has been the common denominator in all European leagues, given the impossibility of bringing the masses together due to the coronavirus pandemic. The different competitions solved their 2019/20 seasons without the encouragement of their fans and are shaping up to do so in the same way in the next campaign.
However, UEFA appears on stage to show his ambition to have an audience for the European Super Cup, which faces the winners of the still current Champions and Europa League and which is scheduled for September 24 in the capital of Hungary.
“UEFA has stated that it is too early to allow fans to participate in the upcoming UEFA Nations League matches in early September, and that test matches should be held to accurately study the impact of spectators on medical protocols. current “, begins the statement after a teleconference held this Wednesday with the general secretaries of the affiliated federations.
“UEFA has planned to use the UEFA Super Cup, to be played on September 24 in Budapest, as a pilot match for which a small number of spectators could be admitted,” the report added.
The decisive match could have as protagonists Inter or Sevilla, the finalists of the current Europa League, and Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich / Lyon, which aspire to measure themselves in the clash for the title in the 2019/20 Champions League.
