Four days after the Ruhr derby against FC Schalke 04, Borussia Dortmund will welcome Russian champions Zenit St. Petersburg to Signal Iduna Park for their first home game of the UEFA Champions League. The match will kick off at 21:00 CET on Wednesday.
No spectators are presently permitted to attend this home game. Borussia Dortmund are in dialogue with the City of Dortmund and are hoping the partial attendance of 300 that will attend Saturday's derby will be permitted again. Due to the high incidence rate at this time, the public health department cannot permit a higher number in order to protect against new coronavirus infections. On Thursday afternoon, the authorities announced a 7-day incidence rate of 76.5 per 100,000 inhabitants in Dortmund.
The online application portal for the match against Zenit St. Petersburg will close on Wednesday. Provided that an approval is issued for 300 spectators, the tickets will be distributed at short notice and the winners and losers will be informed immediately.
