A larger number of fans will now be able to attend K League matches, with stadiums being opened to 25% capacity.
Clubs have been allowed to let fans attend matches at 10% capacity since August 1.
K League has put in several protocols and guidelines for supporters attending matches. Masks are required to be worn and spectators must sit in their designated seats, at least one seat apart from each other.
They also said some behaviours are prohibited such as chanting, shouting, linking arms and other actions that could cause infection to spread.
Megaphones and vuvuzelas are banned, while fans are reminded through announcements, posters and on the big screen to follow these rules.
“On Friday 7th August, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism made the decision to permit 30% of a stadium’s capacity in for K League matches,” K League said in a statement.
However, after analysis conducted of each K League stadium’s capacity and seating layout, for supporters to be able to be seated the required distance from others, the decision was made to allow 25% in, rather than 30.”
Supporters of the away team are not allowed to attend matches. K League said that this is to reduce the chances of the virus being spread by away fans travelling on public transport for a long time to attend a match.
K League also announced on Wednesday that it has signed an agreement with OneFootball, a German football media company.
News, highlights and video content will be available on OneFootball’s platforms.
“From this season K League has partnerships with various overseas digital content platforms such as ‘Dugout’, ‘433’, ‘COPA90’ and now ‘OneFootball’. This will give K League the opportunity to widen its target audience and reach football fans all around the world,” K League said on the partnership.
“Through this partnership with OneFootball, we will continue to provide enjoyment and promote K League to many fans in more diverse regions.”
K League has made available two to three matches per round to be viewed on OneFootball. This will be available in 2020 and 2021 for fans in France, Spain, Brazil, Italy and the UK.
