The scene around the stadium on Monday night should remain as quiet as possible. What was simply unimaginable just a few months ago will now become a reality on Monday evening for the game between Werder Bremen and Bayer 04 Leverkusen at the wohninvest WESERSTADION. The match will take place in accordance with strict hygiene regulations and, most importantly, without any spectators. Only 300 people will be allowed to enter the ground, and fans are under strict orders not to gather outside the stadium.

“We don’t think there will be lots of people gathering outside the stadium,” Frank Baumann said ahead of the first ever match played behind closed doors at the Weserstadion. Last but not least, in regards to the matches that have already taken place on Matchday 26, Baumann spoke about a “huge sense of responsibility” among the fans, despite it being “very difficult for them not to be able to show their support.”

The sporting director went on to emphasise the importance of the fans’ cooperation, “Nevertheless, I would like to make a clear appeal to the fans not to come to the stadium tomorrow night, but rather to stay at home!” It’s very important to adhere to the guidelines over the next few weeks, Baumann explained ahead of Monday night’s game.
