Barcelona might be able to welcome some followers again for his or her Champions League tie in opposition to Juventus on the Camp Nou in December, the Catalan regional authorities mentioned. Talking to Catalan day by day Sport, the area’s General Director for Sport, Gerard Figueras, mentioned preliminary discussions had taken place between authorities and Barca concerning the return of followers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The club have spoken to us about gradually brining fans back, and we told them this is something we need to analyse game by game. Initial figures could be 3000 or 5000 people at the Nou Camp, and according to the epidemiological situation, we will decide if we can scale that up,” he mentioned.

“I think that the protocols will be just about ready to allow for a crowd for the game against Juventus on Dec. 8, as long as the epidemiological situation hasn’t got worse.”

Barcelona didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
