Spanish Football Fans Unlikely To Get Back In September


Spain’s health minister has expressed doubt about the prospect of spectators returning to football matches in September due to the threat of a resurgence in COVID:19 infections.

The government’s department for sport and organizing body La Liga had hoped to let fans back into stadiums at a reduced capacity when the new season starts in September, increasing to 50 percent in November before full capacity returned in January.

Yet a spike in infections since Spain lifted a national state of emergency in June has led some regions to impose localized lockdowns and limit activities, threatening the return to normality.
