The professional sport in Germany stands against nationwide ghosts — but Berlin is a special way. The Senate has decided against a complete exclusion of viewers on Thursday and allows events outdoors with up to 3000 people.

In closed rooms, events are still permitted with up to 2000 people. The previous upper limit of 5000 was reduced. The term of the Regulation was extended until January 22, 2022.

The prerequisite is the presence of a corresponding hygiene frame concept. In principle, the events take place after the 2G-Plus rule, thus receiving only vaccinated or geneses, which can additionally show a current negative corona test. Also, wearing a FFP2 mask is mandatory. In closed rooms, at least one mechanical ventilation is required.

We decided to take advantage of the risks and protective measures here, said the ruling mayor Franziska Highway (SPD) on Thursday. It is about maintaining activities in culture, sport or business as far as possible, although under limited conditions. We came to the conclusion that this is still better than the complete cancellation.

Confederation and countries had agreed on Tuesday from the highly initial Corona variant Omicron to exclude spectators in supraregional sports major events from 28th December.
