The end of the Danish league season will be played in front of supporters, including up to 10,500 at FC Copenhagen, the government announced Tuesday.
There was a limit of 500 people allowed to attend sporting events in Denmark after the coronavirus pandemic, but after three successful test matches with 3,000 spectators, the maximum attendance has been raised.
“That experience has shown that it is possible to host games with many spectators, so it will be a possibility during the summer,” Justice Minister Nick Haekkerup said in a statement.
“The crisis is not over, but we are now taking another step towards reopening Denmark.”
Up to 500 fans will be allowed in each section of the soccer field, with a social distance of at least one meter, which means that the new capacities will be different for each stadium.
A spokesperson for FC Copenhagen told AFP that up to 10,500 fans will be able to enter its 38,000-seat Parken stadium, which is slated to host Euro 2020 matches next year.
The first Danish flight, which restarted on May 28, will end its 2019/20 season on July 29.
