CEO Thomas Röttgermann from the second division soccer team Fortuna Düsseldorf has sharply criticized the plan of the Bundesliga club Union Berlin to play a test match without distance rules for the spectators.
“I just don't get it. That seems to be an attempt to brutally bring back the past - where it cannot be brought back at the moment, ”said Röttgermann in an interview with the“ Rheinische Post ”.
Union President Dirk Zingler had told the “ARD Sportschau” that he would stick to the plan for the test match without distance rules on October 25th. For this, the fans have to undergo a rapid corona test beforehand. How many viewers will be allowed to be present is still open. In September, Union had planned such a test with 3,000 visitors, but ultimately canceled it after the authorities vetoed it.
"Basically, there is still a lot to do, we do not do anything that not everyone involved is convinced of," said Head of Communications Christian Arbeit on Thursday. Approval from the Berlin authorities for the test run is still pending.
