Bayern confirmed on its website that fans returning from Hungary to the state of Bavaria, where the club is based, will be forced to quarantine for a period of 14 days.
The club is also offering fans returning from Budapest a free coronavirus test in the parking lot of their stadium, Allianz Arena.
3,000 tickets are allocated to each of Seville and Bayern, and locals will likely take the rest as Hungary hosts the final of the major European football tournament for the first time.
Hungary’s National Ambulance Service announced that 500 emergency service workers were invited to Thursday’s match, with tickets sold out within 21 hours.
When CNN contacted UEFA about safety concerns in the Super Cup, it referred to earlier announcements about health and safety measures being put in place on the stadium.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Hungarian Football Association indicated that the game would be less risky than indoor events and safer than congestion on the street.
“Thanks to strict precautions, the Puskas Arena will be safer than anywhere else in the country or even the whole of Europe at the time of the match,” she said.
The match comes in the same week that the UK government postponed plans to allow fans to return to the sports stadiums from October 1 amid a second wave of injuries.
Sevilla did not start their La Liga campaign after this season, although the team are in good shape after suffering their last defeat in February. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich started their domestic season with a 8-0 win over Schalke 04.
