Hansa Rostock celebrated a 1-0 (1-0) victory in the 3rd division against Halleschen FC with fans in the stadium. For the first time, a professional club was able to welcome a contingent of fans in the stadium.
The Mecklenburgers successfully defended their second place in the table and cheered exactly 702 spectators in the Ostseestadion.
The Ostderby was the first game in German professional football since November 1 that fans were allowed to play. For the pilot project, the club had received permission from the state government for up to 777 spectators. While the number of corona cases is increasing nationwide, the incidence value in Rostock was 22.9 on Saturday.
“The people of Rostock have earned that with their behavior,” said Mayor Claus Ruhe Madsen in the NDR: “It’s a big day for Rostock, I’m particularly happy about that.”
Only sponsor representatives or season ticket holders from Rostock who had to undergo a rapid corona test were admitted. The concept was drawn up in close cooperation with the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Ministry of Health and aroused national interest. For the game against Halle, among others, representatives of the DFB and other clubs such as Bundesliga club Union Berlin had announced themselves.
