Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that the club are working on a new ‘concept’ to get fans safely back into stadiums to watch live football.

Rummenigge claimed on Tuesday that an inspection has been carried out at the Allianz Arena before saying there is ‘a chance’ of return for supporters.

Fans in Germany haven’t been able to attend games live and in person since March due to the outbreak of the coronavirus

However, Rummenigge is optimistic that could all change in the near future. 

‘I don’t enjoy football without fans,’ Rummenigge said, according to Kicker. ‘There was an inspection at Allianz Arena. We have a concept that’s been implemented very well. There’s a chance that we’ll soon be able to welcome fans again in the arena.’  

The 64-year-old’s comments come a day after Germany’s health experts reportedly agreed to extend a ban for spectators in stadiums until at least the end of October, with coronavirus numbers rising in some areas of the country.

The Bundesliga campaign restarted in mid-May following a two-month suspension, becoming the first European league to resume under strict rules to contain the spread of Covid-19.

Bayern successfully wrapped up the league title in June and there was hope fans would be allowed to return in some form before the new campaign begins next month.

However, while Rummenigge remains optimistic, Germany’s government officials are less so.

‘We need to stay vigilant. In the current situation, spectators in the stadiums would be the wrong signal,’ health minister Jens Spahn said in a tweet.

Spahn pointed to a rising number of new coronavirus cases over the past few days and warned against taking any avoidable risks that could further increase the infection rate.

Government officials have repeatedly urged Germans to stick with such precautionary measures as social distancing and the wearing of face masks, but the rising number of infections suggest some have become less careful during the summer months.
