French Open 2020: Only 1,000 spectators allowed per day

The organiser of French Open has been forced to reduce the number of spectators due to France’s increasing rate of COVID-19 infections.

The French Open has confirmed only 1,000 spectators will be allowed to attend the tournament each day.

Having reduced the daily capacity from a planned-for 11,500 fans to 5,000 a week ago, tournament organisers have now had to reduce further to comply with new rules introduced to try to curb France’s soaring rate of coronavirus infections.

Tournament director Guy Forget said in a press conference on Thursday that organisers were still hopeful of keeping to their 5,000 tally despite restrictions announced by the minister of health that specifically targeted sporting events.
