The UEFA Super Cup clash between Sevilla and Bayern Munich next month will be played with fans.
The game between the Champions League and Europa League winners will be held in Budapest at the Puskás Arena and according to UEFA, 30% (67,215 capacity) of the stadium can be used by the fans.
“While it has been important to show that football can carry on in difficult times, without fans, the game has lost something of its character.
“We hope to use the UEFA Super Cup in Budapest as a pilot that will begin to see the return of fans to our matches.
“We are working closely with the Hungarian Federation and its government to implement measures to ensure the health of all those attending and participating in the game. We will not take risks with people’s safety,” a statement from UEFA noted.
The match will serve as a test before the start of the 2020/21 Champions League and Europa League campaigns.
It is not clear yet if those fans will be based locally or can travel from Germany and Spain.
