Supporters to be allowed into stadiums in England
Supporters will be permitted to attend events in stadiums in England when the national lockdown ends on December 2, says Boris Johnson.
Stadiums in tier 1 will be permitted to hold up to 4,000 spectators. Grounds in tier 2 can welcome up to 2,000 supporters. Grounds in tier 3 must continue to hold events behind closed doors; outdoor grassroots sport also allowed to resume in England.
Outdoor stadiums in tier 1 areas – deemed to be medium risk by the Government – will be allowed to hold up to 4,000 socially-distanced supporters or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer.
Outdoor stadiums in tier 2 areas – viewed to be high risk – can welcome up to 2,000 spectators or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer.
Indoors stadiums in tiers 1 and 2 will be allowed to host up to 1,000 fans or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer.
But both indoor and outdoor stadiums in tier 3 areas – seen as very high risk – will have to continue to hold events behind closed doors.
“I can confirm that the national restrictions will end on December 2 and they will not be renewed. Collective worship, weddings and outdoor sports can resume and shops, personal care and the wider leisure sector can reopen.” Says the Prime Minister.
The decision will provide a major boost to governing bodies, which have been forced to postpone events or hold them behind closed doors. The coronavirus pandemic, as well as individual clubs that have been trying to survive without revenue from ticket sales.
