Ajax does not yet know whether it can allow supporters in the Johan Cruijff ArenA during the home matches in the Champions League. For the time being, no fans in the Netherlands are welcome at sports matches due to the corona virus until October 20. The Champions League starts the same day. The European football association UEFA will announce the schedule on Friday evening.
UEFA said on Thursday that it will allow a limited number of spectators to attend matches in the Champions League, the Europa League and the Nations League. Fans of away clubs are not welcome in the stadiums for the time being. For the spectators of Ajax it is a pity that they cannot go to Liverpool. Many of them have been looking forward to a duel at Anfield for years.
An important condition for admitting spectators to European matches is that the national health authorities agree to football fans in the stadiums. If that requirement is met, stadiums of the European Football Association may be filled to a maximum of thirty percent of their capacity. All spectators must keep their distance and wear a face mask.
“A logical decision,” emphasized UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin. “We are all dealing with the same enemy: the corona virus. Each country has a different approach, but this decision allows us to be more flexible. In these difficult times it is important to bring hope and passion back into the lives of football fans. ”
“I think we will have to wait and see what the virus does”, said Ajax spokesman Miel Brinkhuis at a press conference on Thursday evening. time has come to the door of Mayor Halsema and the other counters in Amsterdam who decide on this. ”
