    Russian football fans WILL be allowed into stadiums next month – but only at 10 per cent capacity

    Russian football fans WILL be allowed into stadiums when their league starts again next month – but only at 10 per cent capacity in a move that could lead to clubs’ doors opening across Europe

    • Fans are allowed back into stadiums when football restart in Russia next month 
    • Attendances at matches will be capped at 10 per cent of the stadium’s capacity 
    • The clubs will decide how to distribute fans in the stands for the return of games
    • The Russian league has previously revealed it will resume fixtures on June 21 
    • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

    Supporters will be allowed back into stadiums when football returns in Russia next month – but attendances will be capped at 10 per cent capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    A new proposal drawn up by football authorities in the nation, which was approved by a state regulatory agency, has revealed that a limited number of fans will be able to watch their teams in action in person.

    The Russian league previously announced that fixtures will resume from June 21 in the wake of a three-month suspension.

    Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko unveiled the relaxation on Thursday in a statement on the website of the Russian coronavirus task force.

    He wrote: ‘Both players and fans have missed the vivid emotions of a match and the noise from the stands. Soon all this will return.’

    Clubs are likely to be handed the decision over how to distribute fans in the stands, with logistics affected by the varying capacities of each ground.

    Zenit St Petersburg, for example, are capable of allowing in 70,000 spectators for a typical home clash. Orenburg Gazovik, however, host games at a 7,500 seater venue instead.

    The slight easing of those allowed at matches may help clubs recover in part financially, after the top division was brought to a halt on March 17.

    Belarus are currently the only European nation allowing fans to watch games in stadia despite the global health crisis, with every attendee subjected to temperature checks and asked to sit separately.  

    It remains unclear what regulations would apply to match-goers in Russia when action restarts

    However, it still remains unclear what regulations would apply to match-goers in Russia when action restarts.

    The playing and coaching staff at clubs in Russia have undergone coronavirus tests ahead of a gradual return to training, with positive results being returned from individuals at several of the 16 clubs in the top flight.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has encouraged regional officials to begin to lift restrictions and announced on Tuesday that, according to specialists, the country has passed the peak of the outbreak.  

    Zenit St. Petersburg lead the top division by nine points with eight games remaining.
