Sports director Fredi Bobic from Hertha BSC believes that an early lifting of the spectator restrictions in the stadiums is “unstoppable”. Otherwise he is ready to file a lawsuit.
Like Bobic across the board Picture TV said he believed in a return to normalcy in the stadiums: “We will get to the point where we open everything. There is no stopping it,” said Bobic on Sunday.
On Saturday, 18,241 spectators were in the Berlin Olympic Stadium in the 1: 2 against VfL Wolfsburg. Actually, 25,000 spectators would have been admitted.
One reason for the reluctant return of the fans is precisely the restriction on the number of spectators: “I am sure that a lot more spectators would have come if everything were freely accessible and the capacities had not been limited.” Bobic emphasized that there should be no more restrictions, especially for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered.
In addition, Bobic is assuming that the DFL will insist on a complete lifting of the stadium restrictions after the international break at the beginning of September. However, Bobic could also imagine that clubs would occasionally rely on legal action to obtain a complete opening. He did not take Hertha himself out of it: “We would join a lawsuit,” said Bobic.
