On the 29th of September Sweden goes into level 4 out of 5. This means it will be possible for the Allsvenskan and Superettan clubs to welcome the fans back to the stadiums.
“The responsibility to act wisely now passes on to us as organizers and to all the individuals”, says Mats Enquist, CEO at Swedish Professional Football Leagues.
The Swedish Government says that the maximum participation for public events and public gatherings is removed and that the distance between companies and the maximum number of persons allowed in the same company is removed. At this point there will be no use of vaccination certificates.
“Sweden is opening up and finally the football family can be reunited. We are very happy for this. Thanks to Swedish sports- and culture minister Amanda Lind who really listened to our cause. Welcome back everybody”, says Mats Enquist.
Swedish Government also says that people with symptoms should stay at home and that unvaccinated people should avoid large events. If necessary restrictions will be reintroduced.
Swedish Professional Football Leagues and the 32 member clubs all welcomes the fans back to safe and secure stadiums, but at the same time urge all visitors to get vaccinated, to keep distance as far as possible and to stay home in case of symptoms.
