The first home match in front of fans since the end of February - when Bayern were also the opponents - was a resounding success because all stadium visitors complied with the hygiene and social distancing regulations imposed by the Coronavirus pandemic. ''We would like to thank our fans and spectators for their understanding. They observed the prescribed rules both inside and outside the stadium and thus, in addition to their fantastic support for our team, made an important contribution to the success of the matchday," said TSG managing director Frank Briel on Monday.
It wasn't just the TSG management team who drew a positive conclusion; representatives of the Sinsheim local health authority also were satisfied with the outcome. What is more, the reactions of many spectators showed that the hygiene and social distancing concept were met with clear approval. TSG hope that things will run just as smoothly again at the next home match against Borussia Dortmund on 17 October (Saturday).
