Fans return for UEFA Super Cup clash between Bayern Munich and Sevilla

Fans will be in attendance for the UEFA Super Cup match between Bayern Munich and Sevilla, UEFA have announced.

The recent Champions League and Europa League tournaments were concluded in Portugal behind closed doors but UEFA's Executive Committee have voted to allow a reduced number of fans to watch the Super Cup.

The game will be played at the Puskas Stadium in Budapest, with up to 30% of the stadium's 67,215 capacity filled.

In a statement, UEFA said: "The UEFA Executive Committee today decided to allow the 2020 UEFA Super Cup to be played … with a reduced number of spectators … in order to study precisely the impact of spectators on the UEFA Return to Play Protocol.

"It was confirmed that all other UEFA matches shall continue to be played behind closed doors until further notice, as initially decided by the UEFA Executive Committee on 9 July 2020.

"The UEFA Administration will keep monitoring the situation and advise the UEFA Executive Committee if any change is required or recommended in respect of either the 2020 UEFA Super Cup and/or the decision that UEFA matches shall be played behind closed doors until further notice.

"These decisions follow the consultative meeting that UEFA held with its 55 member associations and where such matters were discussed on 19 August 2020."

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: "While it has been important to show that football can carry on in difficult times, without fans, the game has lost something of its character.

"We hope to use the UEFA Super Cup in Budapest as a pilot that will begin to see the return of fans to our matches.

"We are working closely with the Hungarian Federation and its government to implement measures to ensure the health of all those attending and participating in the game. We will not take risks with people's safety."

Bayern and Sevilla won this year's Champions League and Europa League respectively and will face off in the fixture on September 24.
