Bayern Munich and Sevilla will face each other in the 2020 UEFA Supercup on September 24. And, now, UEFA have announced that they plan on inviting fans into the Puskás Aréna.

UEFA’s plan is to open the stadium up to 30% capacity which would be roughly 20,165 spectators. This will be done as part of a test “in order to study precisely the impact of spectators on the UEFA Return to Play Protocol”.

For the time being, all other UEFA matches will remain closed to the general public.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said the following in reference to the decision:

“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.”

The UEFA Supercup will take place on Thursday, September 24 at the Puskás Aréna in Budapest, Hungary.
