Sports politicians for uniform access rules in stadiums

In the debate about the access regulations for stadiums in the corona pandemic, shortly before the Bundesliga start on Friday, sports politicians from the coalition and opposition spoke out in favor of a nationwide uniform application of the so-called 3G group. The CDU expert Eberhard Gienger and the FDP sports committee chairwoman Barbara Dassler led in the Augsburger Allgemeine for their demand for entry permits for vaccinated, recovered and negative tested fans on the one hand constitutional aspects and scientific knowledge.

For the former high bar world champion Gienger, “a distinction between vaccinated, recovered or negatively tested viewers is problematic for constitutional reasons”. According to the outgoing sports policy spokesman for the CDU / CSU parliamentary group, “vaccinated, recovered or negatively tested spectators must be treated equally when entering the stadium”.

Dassler, on the other hand, rejects – like Gienger, subject to the house rules of the clubs and the requirements of the individual federal states – a 2G solution and referred to the recognized lower risk of infection outside of closed rooms to substantiate their position: “In the stadium area, we are talking about the outside area A reduction in access to vaccinated and convalescent people can hardly be justified. The risk of infection in the outdoor area and by far is very low anyway. Therefore, access for vaccinated, convalescent and tested people should be possible in principle. “

In the past few days, a discussion about restricting stadium access only to fully vaccinated and demonstrably recovered visitors had flared up. First division club 1. FC Köln was the first Bundesliga club to announce a special path: The Rhinelander want to their season premiere on Sunday (5.30 p.m. live on DAZN) against Hertha BSC only 1000 of a total of 16,500 seats for spectators with a negative test instead of proof of a vaccination or recovery Grant admission. According to media reports, a negative test result alone will no longer be sufficient for access to the arena in Cologne from the second league home game.
