Full hut at Bayern’s Champions League cracker in Salzburg!
RB Salzburg is now allowed to play the Champions League home game against FC Bayern Munich next Wednesday (9 p.m., live on DAZN) in front of a full audience. As the Austrian federal government announced on Tuesday, from Saturday (February 12) there will no longer be an upper limit for people at events.
Means: 30,000 fans can watch the round of 16 duel in the Red Bull Arena. The prerequisite is a 2G proof (vaccinated or recovered) and an FFP2 mask must be worn everywhere in the stadium.
RB Salzburg boss Stephan Reiter (50): “We are very pleased that this meaningful and responsible solution was found shortly before this historic game for the whole of Austria. It’s not just about football, but about many other events that – mainly because they are held in the open air and in combination with other security measures – mean almost no risk. I would like to thank all partners and the local authorities in advance for the implementation of this upcoming feat of strength, and we look forward to a football festival.”
It’s a very special game for Salzburg. They are in the round of 16 of the premier class for the first time in the club’s history. The second leg in Munich will take place on March 8th in the Allianz Arena. In the last Bayern home game against RB Leipzig (3:2) last Saturday, 10,000 spectators were allowed.
