The administration of the district of Ahrweiler has given the appropriate approval. It is the second turn within a very short time.

BBL boss Stefan Holz has criticized the decision of the politicians not to allow spectators in professional sport for the whole of November. "From our point of view, there are no technical and hygienic reasons for this," said the manager of the basketball league on Wednesday of the German press agency.

Previously, the dpa had learned from the consultations between Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the prime ministers of the federal states that in view of the dramatically increasing number of corona infections, only ghost games should be allowed in professional sports.

"We are asked to have hygiene concepts for which we spend a lot of money and work with proven experts. And although the test phase has shown that the concepts work, they turn the juice off of us. That is bitter," said Wood. He wanted an extension of the test phase and exceptions for the areas in which concepts would work, said Holz. Most recently, a maximum of 20 percent of the normal audience capacity was allowed at sports events, if the infection rate allows it.

"But now we are waiting for the exact decisions. Perhaps there is still something in the small print that allows exceptions," said Holz, who is happy that the leagues are at least allowed to play without spectators. "That's why my emotional state fluctuates between frustration and relief," said Holz. The BBL wants to start its new season on November 6th.
