The question of spectators at the opener against Münsterland

Trend for home game in the Buderus Arena, not positive.

Currently, the inquiries in the office and via social media for the first home game of RSV Lahn-Dill on 23rd January against the BBC Münsterland are increasing. The background is the uncertainty as to whether spectators can be admitted to the home opener of the sports year 2022 in the Buderus Arena Wetzlar and, if so, how many.

“In the current situation, we cannot yet answer this question, but we have to attest that the situation of the pandemic does not work for us and the sport,” says RSV Managing Director Andreas Joneck. Based on the ordinance by the state of Hesse, the permissible capacity is currently already reduced to a maximum of 249 visitors. If, as clearly predicted by all experts, the incidence continues to gain momentum or the district is even defined as a hotspot, then the question about the viewers would unfortunately be answered negatively. In this case, RSV Lahn-Dill would no longer be able to receive visitors in the Buderus Arena.

“Of course, this would be exactly the development that none of us would like, but which can realistically occur,” Joneck continues: “For our season ticket holders and thus for our most loyal fans, we would of course then seek appropriate compensation.”  For all those who have already secured an admission ticket online via RSV partner Ticketmaster, it would of course be possible to cancel the ticket.

Of course, the live stream offer of RSV Lahn-Dill, which was already significantly expanded last year by its partner, is not affected by an audience exclusion. Under, all interested parties can continue to be there free of charge and live when Thomas Böhme & Co. meet the BBC Münsterland in the Buderus Arena.
