"Until now, viewers could remove the mouth and nose cover from their seats or standing areas, but now there is also an obligation to wear a protective mask. Union is thus following the urgent recommendation made on Tuesday by the Berlin Senate to cover mouth and nose in public Space to carry, "communicated the iron.
Chants and chants are not allowed.
In addition, all visitors to the stadium are asked to refrain from chants and chants. This is what the Berlin Corona Regulation provides. Most recently there had been anger about this unrealistic passage because Union had not expressly pointed out this change to the Corona regulation during the test match against Hanover.
