Zenit has already been allowing plenty of fans, with an average attendance over 17,000 at their 67,8000-seat Gazprom Arena.
But there’s at least a bit of walking like their talking, as Zenit is giving the Sputnik V vaccine to fans who want it at matches for the rest of the RPL season.
Over 90,000 people have died from COVID-19 and its complications in Russia, the seventh-highest total in the world.
