In European countries, restrictions on spectators in theaters have been totally or significantly lifted.
Maccabi Tel Aviv has announced that its match against Bayern Munich at the Menora Mivtachim Arena will be sold out, i.e. 11,192 spectators. Both Monaco and Villeurbanne also have the authorization to open their enclosure to 100%. In total, at least two-thirds of the 18 Euroleague teams will start the season with more than 4,000 fans allowed in their arenas.
We can notice that the most draconian limitation is established in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg, while Russia was the most lax in this area at the heart of the global pandemic. That said, in Kazan, the opening is 75%.
