UEFA has confirmed that away fans can attend European club competition matches from next week.
Away supporters will be able to attend games in the Champions League, Europa League and Conference League, subject to national government coronavirus restrictions.
Away fans have not been able to attend almost all matches in European club football since the start of the pandemic, with only a small number of fans allowed at the Champions League and the Europa League finals in May.
A blanket ban on away fans has been in place for the qualifying rounds of UEFA’s three European club competitions this season.
However, UEFA lifted the ban on Monday – potentially allowing away fans to attend matches as early as next week, when the group stage of the three competitions begin.
“Considering the different rules and regulations applicable across the UEFA member association territories, it was decided to no longer apply the MHHRRS, but to leave any decision with regards to spectators to the relevant competent authorities,” read a UEFA statement.
“Therefore, the relevant section referring to the admission of spectators in the UEFA Return to Play Protocol has been adapted accordingly.
“Moreover, in line with the adaptations to the Protocol, the exchange of tickets for the fans of visiting teams is no longer forbidden.
“Therefore, standard practices will be reinstated, i.e. 5 per cent of the total allowed stadium capacity will be reserved to fans of the away team, subject to any decision in this respect falling under the responsibility of the relevant competent authorities.”
