According to report, about 800 fans of Bayern Munich have returned their tickets for UEFA Super Cup on Thursday in Hungary over fears.
This showcase match could become a “super spreader” event. As the Budapest will host the match between Champions League winners Bayern Munich and Europa League holders Sevilla, but the fixture is facing rising criticism.
Budapest has declared by a risk zone, after new infection surge in Hungarian capital, for that reason ‘Everyone should think twice before going there,’ Markus Soeder said.
It was revealed that any Bayern fans returning from Budapest must be tested or be quarantined, Soeder added.
But Bayern and Sevilla were both given 3,000 tickets for the game in Budapest.
The UEFA expect only 1300 Bayern Supporters and 500 Sevilla Fans at Budapest’s Puskas Arena.
AFP subsidiary SID and German daily Bild, said Bayern fans requested 2100 tickets and 800 were returned on Monday, which is the same day Soeder warned about Budapest becoming football’s “IschgI”.
The Austrian ski resort became notorious as a so-called “super spreader” after thousands of holidaymakers became infected at the start of the epidemic in Europe.
But the questions is “Will the super cup become the super spreader cup?” Bayern and Sevilla are offering testing to fans traveling to and from Budapest.
The UEFA told SID on Tuesday that the Super Cup match will go ahead as planned without cancelling it.
