After the decision to ban spectators in November, Borussia Dortmund wrote an open letter to its fans - with criticism, but also looking ahead.
Like many other Bundesliga clubs, Borussia Dortmund does not like the fact that no more spectators are allowed to come to the stadiums of the professional clubs in November. In a letter to its own attachment, BVB criticized the political decisions made on Wednesday.
Not only "emotionally" but also "argumentatively" make the decision of the club "hard", it said on Thursday in the open letter signed "Your BVB". They have "a complex hygiene concept that has been developed by experts and is even valued in every detail by municipalities and health authorities". And: "In our stadiums every spectator was disciplined, nobody got infected in the fresh air."

With his goal to make it 1-0 (6th minute), the attacker, who was once retired from BVB after only one season, initiated the sobering 1: 3 (0: 2) defeat of the Bundesliga club at Lazio.
Despite all the criticism, the situation will be "accepted", according to BVB
Although the decision by Chancellor Angela Merkel and the heads of state of the federal states states that "full contact tracking can currently no longer be guaranteed," BVB emphasizes: " It has been proven that professional football is not a driver of the pandemic. And to be honest, nobody else sees it. Especially against this background, it is difficult to accept that facts do not count. "
Nevertheless, they will "accept the situation as it is," Borussia continued. "The explosive development of the infection process in Germany means that you have to look beyond your own nose and not even develop the expectation that politicians could please every industry, every person, right down to the last detail."

"
