Good news on the eve of the European Cups: Fans return to Albanian stadiums after 16 months

With the decision of the Technical Committee of Experts from today, on July 1, the Albanian fans are allowed to return to the stadium. Authorities have decided to fill sports facilities to 30% capacity sixteen months after the pandemic broke out.

The first match that will be played with the fans in stadiums is today the final of the superior category for 15-year-olds at the stadium 'Selman Stërmasi', while this is very positive news on the eve of the participation of Albanian teams in European cups.

FSHF announcement:

After almost 16 months without fans in stadiums, due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19 that affected the whole world, the Technical Committee of Experts decided a month ago that from July 1, 2021, sports championships with the presence of fans will be allowed with reduced capacity up to 30% of the stadium, according to the protocol of the Institute of Public Health.

Thus, starting today, fans can be present in Albanian stadiums and can attend the final of the Superior Category U-15 that will take place at the stadium "Selman Stërmasi" as well as the finals of the tournament of regional representatives for the U age group -14 and U-13 that will be played at the stadium "Elbasan Arena".

Also, Albanian teams participating in UEFA competitions, Teuta, Vllaznia, Partizani and Laçi, in the return matches to be played in Albania, will have the opportunity to have a limited number of fans on the stadium stairs, with 30% of its capacity.

Furthermore, from September, the emotions will return to the red and black fans, who will have the opportunity to follow the National Team closely, in the match valid for the qualifiers of the World Cup "Qatar 2022" against Hungary on September 5 and three days later against San Marino.
