“These decisions follow the consultative meeting that UEFA held with its 55 member associations and where such matters were discussed on 19 August 2020.”

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin added: “While it has been important to show that football can carry on in difficult times, without fans, the game has lost something of its character.

“We hope to use the UEFA Super Cup in Budapest as a pilot that will begin to see the return of fans to our matches.

“We are working closely with the Hungarian Federation and its government to implement measures to ensure the health of all those attending and participating in the game. We will not take risks with people’s safety.”
