Both irreconcilable rivals will hit the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League. After the elimination of Rapid, Sparta Vienna will play its first match with Monaco on Tuesday at Letná and is already allowed to sell out the entire stadium. Slavia starts on Wednesday at Ferencváros and urges its fans not to go to Budapest.
New rules have been in force since August. Even on Wednesday’s duel with Rapid, the number of spectators in the auditorium was limited to 9,000. However, after the government’s decision, Sparta (as well as in the domestic retaliation of Slavia) can sell out the entire stadium against Monaco.
The condition is clear – three thousand fans are allowed to come on the basis of a negative PCR or antigen test. The remaining capacity of the stadium can be sold out by fans with completed vaccinations, which have elapsed since at least 14 days, or by people who have experienced Covid in the last 180 days.
???? On Friday at noon, the pre-sale of tickets for season tickets for the home match with Monaco will start.
????️ We can sell out the stadium!
Three thousand fans can come with a negative test, the rest of the stadium’s capacity can be filled by vaccinations. ???? #acsparta
