Berlin (dpa) – Hertha managing director Fredi Bobic has made the decision for a full stadium at the Berlin Bundesliga derby at 1.
FC Union defends.
“The unanimous opinion in the talks was that it could be done that way,” reports Bobic from the negotiations with the Berlin Senate this week.
“You can discuss, is it right, it is not right. We have guidelines and we adhere to them,” said Bobic at the Hertha BSC press conference. At the same time, the 50-year-old reaffirmed his stance that it is essential to be vaccinated in the corona pandemic. “Then we could go back to a normal life,” said the ex-professional.
The Berlin Senate allowed full capacity utilization of the stadium in Köpenick with 22,012 spectators on Tuesday, despite the rapidly increasing corona numbers. According to the 2G rule, fans must be vaccinated or recovered and should test themselves if possible before the game on Saturday (6.30 p.m. / Sky).
Bobic confirmed that the Hertha for their next home game in the Bundesliga against FC Augsburg on November 27th, they also applied for full capacity utilization of the Olympic Stadium. However, significantly fewer than the possible 74,000 fans are expected anyway.
