The home match against Armenia on 5th September (also 20:45 CEST) in Stuttgart will also be played without away fans.
FIFA make this decision in compliance with the recommendation of UEFA’s executive committee from 14th June. The decision initially applies to the next international break in September. Germany are in group J along with Liechtenstein, Iceland, Armenia, North Macedonia and Romania, and currently sit in third place with six points from three games played.
