NURBURG, Germany (NewsNation Now) — Germany is preparing for the single-largest gathering of people since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country earlier this year.
This past weekend, the government gave the green light for soccer clubs in the Bundesliga to have fans in the stands. Depending on the region, teams were allowed to have between 10-25% capacity.
On Monday, officials said as many as 20,000 spectators will be allowed to attend next month’s Formula One Eifel Grand Prix at the Nurburgring track, north of Cologne.
The world-famous track normally accommodates more than 100,000 fans.
