Abendzeitung journalist Maximilian Koch is reporting that local authorities have shutdown the any hopes that fans would finally be allowed back into the Allianz Arena.

Instead, spectators will have to wait until June 2nd to attend live sporting events in Munich — if things stay in the current state or get better:

The city of Munich gives the hopes of the @FCBayern a rejection: No fans in the last home game of the season on Saturday against @FCAugsburg. “According to the current legal situation, no games with spectators* are possible until 02.06.2021,” it says on AZ inquiry. #FCBayern

Because of the current infection rate, no special exemption will be granted for the Bavarians.

While Bayern Munich has already clinched its 9th consecutive Bundesliga title, many fans would have liked to have been “in the house” as Robert Lewandowski chases his 41st goal, which would break Gerd Müller’s Bundesliga record.

It is a shame that such a momentous occasion — should it happen — will be nearly silent instead of being celebrated by jubilant fans.
