ANKARA

A limited number of fans will be allowed to attend football games in the Turkish leagues starting in October, the Turkish Football Federation announced Tuesday.

The stadiums can use up to 30% capacity for the fans, with all the stands open to the spectators, said a league statement.

The body temperature of all fans will be checked upon arrival, and they will have to wear a mask during the games.

Since matches resumed this summer with measures against the novel coronavirus, Turkish fans were not allowed to attend games.

This June, Turkey’s top-tier Super Lig resumed play after a three-month break due to the pandemic, playing at empty stadiums and using a host of safety measures to protect the public health.
