Third division soccer team SpVgg Unterhaching will not allow any spectators to attend the home game against newly promoted VfB Lübeck this Friday evening (7 p.m.). “Due to the rapidly increasing corona numbers in Unterhaching and the surrounding communities, the responsible district office made an urgent recommendation,” the association explained. For President Manfred Schwabl it was “the only logical consequence to play without a spectator”. Originally, the SpVgg had planned with up to 3000 visitors in view of the lower incidence in the district compared to the city of Munich. Despite the increase, a game could have taken place in front of spectators, as the incidence value in the district and the neighboring districts is below the value of 35 set by the DFB, said the SpVgg. “If the current situation does not allow a game with spectators, then of course we accept it,” emphasized Schwabl.
