A season ticket, or season pass, is a ticket that grants privileges over a specified time period.
Those who wanted to get them for some Bundesliga quite a long time, but then the privacy was based on the coveted ticket every few days at the coveted ticket: If the heart club played in his own stadium, one went there, the most faithful of the faithful were almost always there.
Corona pandemic came in between
They came in the midsummer when it rained when it was about the championship or against the descent - until they also divide the Coronavirus in March last year in between. And now, in the fall of 2021, there is still the pandemic, but the viewers have long been back in the arenas. But where are the season ticket owners?
The answer is complicated. In some stadiums, they are not so easy to come in due to various Corona regulations. Other clubs such as Bayern Munich activate for the upcoming home game against the SC Freiburg on Saturday again their annual tickets, with 75,000 spectators, the arena should be sold out for the first time since the beginning of 2020. And then there are clubs like Eintracht Frankfurt, where season ticket owners were already allowed in again, but not necessarily. At the latest home game against RB Leipzig, about 20,000 of them preferred to stay at home.
The topic is much bigger than the UltraGroups, said Frankfurt s board member Axel Hellmann last the TV channel image. While the UltraGrupps of some clubs in recent weeks from protest against the Corona restrictions did not yet flow back to the arenas, the reasons for other regular stadium visitors could be lower. It should also be worried about the most recently rising Corona numbers and the increasing confusion around a patch carpet. For a unified directive for the approval of spectators in Bundesliga and 2nd league are not available.
While some clubs set to the 2G model, Borussia Dortmund last moved back to a 3G model. Also negative on the coronavirus fans tested into the stadium. According to a majority of the federal citizens, only vaccinated and genestra fans should be received inlet. 60 percent of respondents spoke out in a representative survey of the opinion research institute YOUGOV on behalf of the German Press Agency. Accordingly, 29 percent of Germans would not find this correctly - for which the ultras of most clubs are likely to count.
Many clubs are in front of a dilemma: in Baden-Württemberg, for example, the state government allows the professional clubs like the VFB Stuttgart a full utilization of the stadium only under 2G conditions. For his remaining breeding games, the VFB had never been sold by the end of October at least about 11,000 durable cards, ie a ticket package for a certain number of games. Regular season ticket owners should also be left the Swabia last remotely. Like other clubs, the VFB has to fight with currently (still) behavior interest.
