No fans at Turkey-Latvia World Cup quals in Istanbul
ISTANBUL- Anadolu Agency
The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) and its medical officials agreed that the match will be held without fans, as even a limited number of fans could be risky now, when new measures might be taken against the COVID-19 pandemic, the federation said in a statement.
The decision showed a shift from a Sunday statement that 15% of stadium capacity could attend the match at Ataturk Olympic Stadium in the Turkish metropolis.
The Group G match will kick off at 1845GMT on Tuesday, with TV coverage broadcasting the action for fans at home.
