In a statement this afternoon, released by the Gibraltar FA, they state: “The Gibraltar FA is pleased to note that, subject to certain conditions, members of the general public may be able to attend Gibraltar’s FIFA World Cup Qualifier versus the Netherlands on 30th March.

The Gibraltar FA is conscious that we are slowly emerging from an extremely difficult period for our country, and that as a nation we must continue heeding the advice from Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar and our Public Health authorities.

As such, the Gibraltar FA will continue its discussions with HM Government of Gibraltar and all relevant local authorities, as well as with UEFA, to determine the best – and safest – way to deliver access to the national stadium for our people on the 30th March. We therefore ask the general public to remain patient, and to follow our social media outlets for further news on access and ticketing. As and when developments occur, the Gibraltar FA will ensure fans of the national team are kept informed every step of the way.

Thank you for your patience and understanding – let’s continue to keep Gibraltar safe.”

The news came after the Director of Public Health Gibraltar, Dr Sohail Bhatti, announced the news earlier today on social media.

Today’s story would suggest that the international vs Norway on March 24th will remain behind closed doors, however there is no confirmation either way on this as it stands.
