Borussia Dortmund‘s season-opening Bundesliga fixture at home to Borussia Monchengladbach is set to be played.

The club has announced that the opening match will be played in front of around 10,000 supporters.

Bundesliga clubs have reportedly been given the green light for fans to return to stadiums for the start of the 2020-21 season in Germany amid the coronavirus pandemic.

During the match, only Dortmund or North Rhine-Westphalia residents will be granted access.

“The Bundesliga teams, but also the clubs and associations of other sports, can be very happy today, and we definitely have this feeling at BVB,” said Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke in a statement.

“I would like to thank everyone in politics who contributed to today’s decision in the past few weeks. At the same time, I feel a great obligation that we as clubs, together with the fans involved, will handle this probationary period extremely responsibly in the coming weeks. The now-approved partial re-admission of viewers is in any case a very important step for all football fans in Germany. “

The 2019-20 campaign resumed behind closed doors in May due to Covid-19, which forced the league to be postponed in March.
