After the current developments regarding the spread of the Corona virus, the increased risk of infection in the Saarland and the decision of the Saarland state government today not to allow large events with more than 1.000 visitors to take place, the SV Elversberg will see the home games of their regional league team according to the current status until further notice excluding the spectators. This applies to the upcoming home game of the SVE professionals on Saturday, March 14th, in the URSAPHARM-Arena against TSG Hoffenheim II and until further notice, in order to curb an exponential increase in the number of infections as far as possible. In addition, it cannot be ruled out that the decision to play the home games without a spectator will change again with the further development of the infection situation.
The situation has developed quickly in the past two days and with a view to the past home game against Kickers Offenbach and is therefore now being reassessed for the coming match days, taking into account today's government declaration. Human health is always the top priority and has absolute priority. The association has a great responsibility towards its viewers and will do its utmost to minimize the risk of new infections with the virus. The SVE therefore considers the step, even if they are only on the threshold of the abovementioned visitor limit, to be held without spectators as necessary and asks its partners, fans and stadium visitors for understanding.
On Saturday, only those people will be in the URSAPHARM arena who are necessary for the organization and staging of the regional league home game or who have a clear job assignment in the stadium. A possible live broadcast of the game is currently being examined.
This regulation also applies to the upcoming home game of the SVE Oberliga team on Friday, March 13, against SV Eintracht Trier.
