    BERLIN, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Germany's federal states have agreed that some fans will be allowed into the stadiums when the Bundesliga season starts this weekend, a source involved in the talks told Reuters on Tuesday.

    Spectators had been banned from stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic when the Bundesliga resumed in May.

    A six-week trial, during which up to 20% of stadium capacity can be used, was agreed in a video call of regional representatives, said the source, who added that strict hygiene requirements would be imposed and alcohol would be banned.
