UEFA revealed that away fans will be allowed to attend Champions League games after lifting the ban that did not allow fans to travel because of COVID restrictions. They will be able to attend all the matches of European competitions depending on the coronavirus restrictions in the country. There were only a small number of away fans present for the UEFA Champions League and Europa League finals last season.
“Considering the different rules and regulations applicable across the UEFA member association territories, it was decided to no longer apply the MHHRRS, but to leave any decision with regards to spectators to the relevant competent authorities,” UEFA said in a statement lifting their ban on away fans attending Champions League matches. “Therefore, the relevant section referring to the admission of spectators in the UEFA Return to Play Protocol has been adapted accordingly.”
“Moreover, in line with the adaptations to the Protocol, the exchange of tickets for the fans of visiting teams is no longer forbidden.” the statement added. “Therefore, standard practices will be reinstated, i.e. 5 percent of the total allowed stadium capacity will be reserved to fans of the away team, subject to any decision in this respect falling under the responsibility of the relevant competent authorities.”
“It was decided to exclude all individuals which are fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 and/or have recovered from COVID-19 from any further testing for purposes of entering Zone 1 at UEFA matches,” added the UEFA statement.”
