September 10, 2020 – Big football news today, as HNS discusses returning spectators to stadiums in the Croatian league.
24 Sata reports that about two months after the Croatian Football Federation decided that spectators could not visit stadiums “to minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus at matches” and bring last season’s competition to a successful end, fans should fill the stands of HNL stadiums soon.
“We have a working group that will propose the return of spectators to the stands, one third as allowed with the prior approval of the County Civil Protection Headquarters and, of course, with compliance with all epidemiological measures,” said HNS Executive Director Marijan Kustic.
Unfortunately, there will be no fans for the biggest Croatian derby between Hajduk and Dinamo, which will be played on Saturday at Poljud. However, spectators should be allowed again, starting from the fifth round.
It should be reminded that in the 29th round of the HNL last season, HNS allowed spectators before the last round, when coronavirus cases were growing in Croatia. The last round, however, was played without fans.
