The Malta Football Association (MFA) announced that football fans will be allowed back inside the national stadium for the first time in 16 months after matches were forced to be played behind closed doors due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The capacity of the stadium, excluding those on the pitch, would be limited to 200 people for the forthcoming UEFA Club tournament matches, according to MFA.
Only those with a match ticket and a vaccination certificate will be permitted into the stadium, according to the MFA, while an identification document will also be required prior to access. Additionally, attendees at such events will also be asked to supply their contact information for contact-tracing reasons.
The association also stated that no tickets will be sold at the door, and that attendees must wear masks the whole time and respect social distance.
This follows the new procedures for huge events published by the health officials on Saturday. The authorities introduced a “bubble” idea for large venues, indicating that if the venue is prepared to have physically separate portions, the event can accommodate up to 100 people per separate sector.
