New pilots announced for return of spectators to elite sport

Sunday August 30, 2020 at 11:57am

The Government has announced a further batch of sporting events which includes speedway, that will be used to pilot the safe return of spectators, after the Prime Minister confirmed it was safe for the trials to resume from 15 August.

The new phase of the programme began with the finals of the World Snooker Championships at the Crucible, Sheffield, on 15-16 August, and will continue with events including a Brighton & Hove Albion pre-season friendly this weekend.  Please click on the link below for more information.

The events have been selected to test a range of different event styles across the country’s major men’s and women’s spectator sports. A number of successful pilots have already been completed as part of the programme’s initial phase including snooker at the Crucible and cricket at Edgbaston and the Oval.

The initial tranche of pilots listed below will take place over the coming weeks, building up throughout September with a view to a full reopening for fans in October.

The pilots will only take place if the latest scientific and medical advice allows for them to proceed in a Covid-secure way, and will be paused again if the advice suggests that conditions in the local area are not met.
