ESSMA case-study: How to welcome your fans back?

Rethinking stadiums: in its latest case-study ESSMA (European Stadium & Safety Management Association) collected the learnings and insights of the stadium operators who have already restarted. Kindly following up on IAKS’ request, ESSMA put together a condensed report to share. The full publication is only accessible for ESSMA members on the organisation’s website.

Nowadays, the majority of European competitions are opening the season with a certain number of fans in the stands. For instance, 10 % of stadium capacity is allowed in Russia, whereas Denmark opens up to 20 % of the stands. French clubs will welcome back up to 5,000 fans as of the new seasons kick-off, whereas the Netherlands opt to re-open stadiums for 1/3rd of fans.
