Fans get the green light to attend games in Strasbourg
STRASBOURG (France) - It's good news for the bulk of fans wanting to watch the action at the FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2021 in Strasbourg after it was confirmed a limited number of spectators would be allowed entry.
While the Rhenus Sport venue, scheduled to host games from June 17-23, will not be able to operate at the originally intended capacity of 5,600, up to 3,600 spectators will be able to buy tickets and attend, following governmental guidelines.
Strict Coronavirus protocols will be put in place for those attending, with the decision being made thanks to the cooperation of the French Basketball Federation, Ministry of Sport and local authorities.
Tickets for the games can be purchased via a dedicated ticketing website.
Strasbourg will host two pools of the Group Phase, as well as Qualification for the Quarter-Finals and the corresponding Quarter-Finals.
Multiple packages covering these various phases are available, including day passes and round passes. Fans can find all information regarding tickets for games in France and also arrange to purchase them here.
The news of having spectators in the building will be a big boost to co-hosts France, with Basketball Federation President Jean-Pierre Siutat particularly thrilled by the news.
He said: "We are delighted to be able to welcome the public in Strasbourg. Everything will be put in place to make the party a beautiful one, while respecting current sanitary conditions.
"We wanted to make the price of seats attractive to allow everyone to take advantage of this return to normal life and to come and support our French team in this quest for a European medal.
"We know the public will respond. We can't wait to see them and the players too," he concluded."
