Spain to allow full attendance at sports venues again

Latest: Coronavirus in Spain figures (24 Feb)

The Spanish health authorities have decided to allow football stadiums and other sports venues to return to their full capacity, the Health Minister Carolina Darias said on Wednesday.

The restrictions limiting fan attendance will be fully lifted on Friday 4 March, as the most recent wave of the Covid pandemic driven by the Omicron variant wanes. Latest: Coronavirus in Spain figures (16 Feb)

Spain closed its football stadiums to the public last season while this season started with stadiums at 60% capacity. It then allowed full seating in October, only to move it back to 75% in late December when the more contagious Omicron strain caused infections to skyrocket.

Darias said that mandates making face masks obligatory at all sports events, both indoors and outdoors, remain in place, as well as bans on smoking, eating and drinking. Also read: Face masks no longer compulsory outside in Spain – full details of new rules
