Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the NSA has been allowing only 25 percent of football fans into the various football venue.
There have been talks in the local media concerning the percentages given to football clubs as compared to musical concerts.
Hearts wrote the NSA to offer them the opportunity to admit more fans in the match against Great Olympics, but their plea was turned down.
