Despite the slowdown in the reopening programme, mainly due to the prevalence of the Indian variant in the country, the UK continues its path towards a normal sporting life. As I mentioned before times, The Wimbledon final On the center court of the All English Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club you will play against 15,000 spectators, ie 100% of the system capacity.
It will be the first fully sold out sporting event in the UK since March 2020, when the spread of Covid halted sport and closed stadiums around the world. The record remains as an absolute number of fans until Euro 2020, when 45,000 spectators are expected to attend the semi-finals and finals of the tournament (50% of capacity), double the current 22,500 (25%).
Therefore, the football and tennis reopening program is not much affected by the postponement Freedom Day, from June 21 to July 19, which instead slowed the return of sports to normalcy such as cricket (No more than 10,000 people per plants).
In any case, the major openings will be used as a subject of study by the government, to assess the effects in terms of contagion and to assess the efficiency of the implementation of the national health system.
