Fans could begin returning to stadiums in “3 to 4 weeks” – sports ministry

Speaking to BFMTV, the French government’s sports minister, Roxana Maracineanu, announced that small experiments will begin with returning sports supporters back to stadiums in “3 to 4 weeks time.”

We are working with the culture and tourism ministries to have experiments that should occur in 3 to 4 weeks. In these experiments, we could integrate all the new crisis technologies like vaccines, saliva or antibody tests, and also all the tools from the test, alert, protect strategy like QR codes that could be used.”

When asked about whether these experiments may begin in Lyon, as desired by the club’s president, Jean-Michel Aulas, Roxana Maracineanu did not confirm or deny this possibility:

We have not taken the decision. But it was interesting to talk (last weekend) with Mr Aulas who is well advanced with a medical institution to work on his own protocol.”
