UEFA will now allow spectators in the coming Champions League and UEFA Nations League matches, as long as local authorities allow it. The maximum capacity will be 30% of the stadiums and only home fans will be allowed for now.
There was a trial where 15,000 fans were able to watch from the stadium, namely the match of the UEFA Super Cup final between Bayern Munich and Sevilla. The pilot test was a complete success in the host city Budapest. Of course, after following the correct sanitation measures.
A lot has happened since the last time we saw the Camp Nou with fans as the doors of almost all stadiums were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now we are close to seeing the support of the Catalans again in Barcelona’s temple.
This is a very positive movement, since the percentage of allowed fans would gradually increase until it returns to normality. In addition, it motivates the leagues of each country to follow the same steps, of course, always prioritising the health of fans.
Barcelona legend Ronaldinho tests Positive for COVID-19
Former Barcelona player and club legend Ronaldinho has confirmed that he tested positive for COVID-19.
The World Cup winner, through a story he posted on Instagram, broke the news, saying that he tested positive for Coronavirus, while being asymptomatic, and self-isolating in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
“I’ve been here in Belo Horizonte since yesterday, I came to participate in an event.” Ronaldinho says in the video, before adding, “I took the test and tested positive for COVID. I am fine, asymptomatic, but we will have to postpone the event for later.”
The Brazilian legend ends the video on a positive note, by saying, “Soon we will be there together. Big hug!”
The 40-year-old joined Barcelona in 2003, and is often said to be one of the best players to play for the club. He is also called for being a revolutionary, helping Barcelona win their first Champions League in the new era, and their second ever after a 14 year gap. We wish Ronaldinho a speedy recovery!
