The Nurburgring circuit has confirmed that it would admit 20,000 fans for the Eifel Grand Prix after it was given the green light from the local authorities.
After making changes to its schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic, Formula One announced in July that Nurburgring would return to the Grand Prix calendar this year. The circuit located in the town of Nürburg last hosted a Formula One race back in 2013, meaning that a seven-year hiatus will be broken this year.
The race will be staged under the name of the Eifel Grand Prix, becoming the fourth different title for a Formula 1 race. The track has hosted races under the German, European and Luxembourg Grands Prix titles previously.
The Formula 1 Aramco Grand Prix of the Eifel will take place from 9th to 11th October. The circuit has now confirmed that it will allow 20,000 spectators to follow the action from the grandstands.
The opening eight rounds of the 2020 championship were ran as ‘ghost events’ due to the coronavirus outbreak. The Tuscan Grand Prix became the first event last weekend where spectators were allowed to return to an F1 race for the first time this year,
A three-day ticket for the Eifel grand prix will cost €199. The tickets will be sold in different stages with the tickets for the stands T3, T4a and T5b becoming the first ones available.

The cirucit’s managing director Mirco Markfort said that the organisation would offer different tickets that should enable that even lower price categories become available.
“It is important to us in this first stage to offer tickets in different price categories.Of course, in times of corona, with the enormous personnel and planning effort it entails, everything is a question of cost.
"But it is also a question of giving fans the opportunity to be able to afford tickets and to experience the race safely."
