Bayern Munich will offer free coronavirus tests to any fans of the German soccer club attending the Super Cup in Hungary next week.

Hungary is requiring a certified negative test result from any fans attending the European season opener, according to The Associated Press.

The club will offer free testing to any of the 3,000 fans who have bought tickets on Sept. 21 and Sept. 22 at a parking lot adjacent to the stadium.


Bayern Munich, which won the Champions League, is set to play Sevilla, the victor in the Europa League, in the Sept. 24 match.

Earlier this month, the club’s reserve team announced an unidentified player had tested positive for the virus and would be quarantined for 14 days. Bayern Munich II canceled its planned exhibition match against RB Salzburg for that Friday.

Paris Saint-Germain, the team’s opponent in the Champions League finale, also reported several positive test results.

Germany's Bundesliga in May became the first major European soccer league to return to action amid the coronavirus pandemic, with games being played in front of no fans and teams practicing social distancing.
