Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) has defended the ban on spectators for the Bundesliga opener in Munich.

As sorry as he was: "But it is right not to let fans into the Allianz Arena," wrote the CSU boss on Twitter on Thursday. The number of infections in Munich has risen significantly again in the last few days.

"We support OB Reiter: Caution is required. We must not take any unnecessary risk, ”said the head of government. The local authorities had previously banned spectators at the Bundesliga opener in Munich on Friday evening. The reason for this is the increasing number of corona infections in the Bavarian capital, Munich Mayor Dieter Reiter announced on Thursday. Finally, it was said that 7.500 fans should be allowed in the opening game of FC Bayern Munich against Schalke 04.
