In a meeting with Parliamentary Secretary for Sport, Youth and Voluntary Organisations Clifton Grima, representatives of the South End Core have proposed new health protocol with the aim of safely bringing back fans to football stadiums in the near future.

The SEC have proposed that Malta’s match against Russia on 24 March be a ‘Pilot Testing’ match with a spectator-cap of 1,600 which would be followed by close monitoring for 14 days.

The monitoring would confirm whether or not spectators followed the protocol and confirm the absence of COVID-19 cases due to match attendance and if successful, fans would return to local matches from Mid-April.

MaltaDaily had interviewed the Parliamentary Secretary Secretary on the potential return of fans to stadiums back in December and addressed the importance of vigilance and careful discussion regarding this issue as we move closer towards normality.
