On March 11, 2020, the last football match took place in front of a packed stadium in the United Kingdom: Atletico de Madrid’s victory over Liverpool. A year later, despite epidemics and subsequent locks, high-level sports and football were able to continue to function. To this day there is certainly no audience, but it should not last too long for the good progress of the vaccine campaign. The British government is proud to be able to hold all Euro 2020 matches in theaters next June in the presence of spectators. So the editorial staff wanted to remind you of important dates in the restructuring program related to training and sporting events.
For those who dream of practicing a game again with their friends, next March 29 will provide the long-awaited green light. Internal infrastructure will be re-accessed. These sites can be used by up to six groups, with a maximum of two household members. Tournament amateur outdoor sport will resume its rights.
On April 12, recognition will be given to the indoor game. Sports halls, gyms, dance studios and swimming pools will reopen their doors.
For fans of sporting events, you will be allowed to return to the stadiums from May 17th. The public will be limited to 50% of the capacity of each venue: up to 1,000 people for indoor events and up to 4,000 for outdoor. For example, for accommodations of more than 16,000 people, such as Wembley Stadium, the organizers can accommodate 25% of the regular audience, i.e. a maximum of 10,000 seats. Finally, on June 21, all restrictions must be lifted and normal life may resume its course, almost as before.
