RB Leipzig continues to sue against viewer restrictions

Managing director Oliver Mintzlaff from the Bundesliga soccer club RB Leipzig has emphasized that he wants to maintain the lawsuit against the applicable audience limits.

“Because it is still incomprehensible to us why every second seat in a theater or cinema can be occupied and we only have 25 percent capacity – and that in the open air,” said Mintzlaff on “Sky90” on Sunday.

The Saxon Corona Ordinance issued last Tuesday allows the club to use a quarter of the arena for home games. From the game next Friday (8:30 p.m. / DAZN) against 1. FC Köln, RB can plan with over 12,000 visitors. Before that, only 1000 fans were allowed. Consequently, RB had applied to the Saxon Higher Administrative Court in Bautzen for an interim order to be issued in summary proceedings.

Mintzlaff now wants to discuss “whether we can still find a consensus that at least gives us the opportunity – and then possibly all other Bundesliga clubs – to open the stadiums step by step”.
