The upcoming edition of the Wimbledon will allowed to have a full crowd of 15,000 at Centre Court for the men’s and women’s finals, scheduled to be held in July, the British government has announced.
The grass-court Grand Slam was cancelled entirely in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic
Wimbledon, which begins June 28, is likley to have fifty percent crowds towards the beginning while it will be allowed to have a full house by July 10-11.
In a statement, the British government’s Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: “We want to gather further evidence on how we can open up all big events safely, and for good.”
“In the next few weeks this means more fans enjoying the Euros and Wimbledon, and some of our biggest cultural and sports events,” he added.
Significantly, the government has decided to ease the Covid restrictions on crowds. The move is expected to increase the attendances at the ongoing Euro championship and Wimbledon.
