A total of 15,500 tickets have been sold for the UEFA Super Cup final match between Bayern Munich and Sevilla set for Thursday night.
The final is an annual showdown between the winners of UEFA’s Champions League and Europa League competitions and will be played at the famous Puskas Arena, in Budapest, Hungary.
Ahead of the clash, organizers; UEFA, and the Hungarian Football Federation (MLSZ), have called on fans to act responsibly and comply with measures put in place to protect them.
This will be the first European match to allow fans since the coronavirus outbreak in March, even though the number has been reduced to just a quarter of the stadium’s 60,000 capacity.
“We are working closely with the Hungarian Football Federation and its government to implement measures to ensure the health of all those attending and participating in the game,” said UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin, “We will not take risks with people’s safety.”
This match will act as a pilot to in their extensive plans to slowly allow fans back into the stadium, and Caferin had this to say;
“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 Super Cup in Budapest as a pilot that will begin to see the return of fans to our matches.”
