The men and women Wimbledon finals will be played before a capacity crowd – the first outdoor event since the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Grand Slam tournament will start on June 28th with a 50% audience.
As the event progresses numbers will rise towards the finals to fill the 15,000 seater Centre Court.
Wembley is also included in new plans to allow more people to watch sport together.
It’s hoped the knock-out stages of Euro 2020 will have crowds of 45,000 – half the seating available.
Wimbledon and Euro 2020 are being fan pilots – exempt from strict capacity limits despite the government’s decision to hold back on lifting lockdown restrictions until July 19th.
The World Snooker Championship at the Crucible in Sheffield was the first event to allow a full crowd.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said:
“We want to gather further evidence on how we can open up all big events safely, and for good.
“The expansion of trials of the NHS app and lateral flow testing will mean that bigger crowds will be able to attend a limited number of major sporting and cultural events early this summer as part of our events research programme.
“In the next few weeks, this means more fans enjoying the Euros and Wimbledon, and some of our biggest cultural and sports events.”
Wimbledon said in a statement:
“We are continuing to work closely with the Government to finalise the details including the requirements for Covid-status certification for spectators.
“This will enable us to fulfil our aspiration of staging the best Wimbledon possible within the current circumstances, with the health and safety of all those who make Wimbledon happen – our guests, competitors, members, staff, media, officials, local residents, and partners – remaining our highest priority.”
