Turkey: 'Fans in July possible'

The Turkish FA has revealed that the country is working towards reopening stadia to fans in July.

The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) announced last week that the Super Lig would resume on June 12 behind closed doors.

Now, its President has talked up the possibility of letting supporters attend matches as early as this summer.

“Our objective is to complete the campaign, otherwise there will be problems,” Nihat Ozdemir is quoted as saying by Corriere dello Sport.

“We want to complete the season on the pitch. Tests will be performed frequently during preparations.

“If there are cases, we’ll quarantine them and continue on our way. There are countries about to restart where the situation is worse than ours.

“Our first objective is to play without fans. If things go well, maybe we can play matches with fans in July.”
