Azteca stadium will be open at half capacity for ‘El Clásico Nacional’
The health department in Mexico has allowed fans in the stadium for the game between Club América and Chivas on 25 September.
Mexico has been fighting to control the level of coronavirus cases in the country and on Tuesday the public health department said that the situation is improving amid the third wave of the pandemic due to the Delta variant. Covid-19 cases have gone down for four straight weeks and for that reason sports organisers are beginning to start slowly allowing fans back in.
“For the fourth consecutive week, there’s been a continued and accelerated reduction in cases in the country,” Deputy Health Secretary Hugo Lopez-Gatell said during President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s daily press briefing at Mexico City’s National Palace.
