“Diffuse image” in the Sportschau poll about immunized fans



"Diffuse image" in the Sportschau poll about immunized fans

A survey of the ARD-Sport show among the 18 Bundesliga clubs regarding possible privileges for vaccinated and recovered spectators in the coming season. The question was whether vaccinated and convalescent people have advantages over those who have been tested in getting into the stadiums.

In the second home game against VfL Bochum on August 28th, 1. FC Köln will only allow fans from the so-called “G2” group into the stadium. Those that have been tested are only used in exceptional cases.

Borussia Dortmund’s managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke is on the line of the Rhinelander. He is against a compulsory vaccination, “on the other hand, the organizers of major events, including football, have the right to say that only vaccinated people come in. I consider that to be legitimate because we are in a difficult fight” said the BVB boss of the sports show.

“From our point of view, vaccination is the decisive factor on the way back to a changed normalcy. We need a solution for our society, because we fear that the entire professional sport in Germany would get into great difficulties without a significant vaccination quota. Vaccination is a very personal one Decision, and it has to be respected. But we also have a responsibility for the many, many FC fans who have been vaccinated, “said Cologne’s finance director Alexander Wehrle to the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger. FC hopes, at least in the medium term, to be able to welcome 50,000 spectators again to the RheinEnergie Stadium.

Of the 18 Bundesliga clubs, eleven took part in the Sportschau survey. The result was a “diffuse picture”, according to ARD. Vice-champion RB Leipzig also took part in the survey, who “for the time being” does not want to grant any benefits to the immunized. Bayer Leverkusen “currently not planned” and SC Freiburg (“not yet the case”) have not yet made a decision.

VfL Wolfsburg does not want to grant privileges to immunized people. “No. The 3G rule applies,” replied the club when asked by the sports show. Hertha BSC and FSV Mainz 05 also answered with a “No”, just like the Gladbachers, who added, however: “Unless the Corona Protection Ordinance stipulates this.”
