As the friendly game between Ukraine's national football team and the Polish squad approaches, it seems that the fixture will be played with empty stands. Maciej Sawicki, the Secretary-General of the Polish Football Union posted that on Twitter.

"Poland vs Finland in Wroclaw and Poland vs Ukraine in Chorzow will be played without viewers. The games will be broadcasted via TV", Sawicki wrote.

The Polish Football Union decided not to let the fans on the stands for the reasons of public safety.
