French Open to sell tickets for up to 60 percent capacity
7/2/2020 3:12:12 PM EST
The French Open plans to put fans in the stands up to 60 percent capacity, the French Tennis Federation announced Thursday.
Tickets for the Sept. 27-Oct. 11 clay-court major will go on sale July 16 to the general public.
"The number of spectators allowed in the stadium will be 50%-60% of the usual capacity," the FFT said in a release. "This reduction will allow strict distancing measures to be respected."
Fans are not required to wear masks while seated, but Roland Garros said it will recommend face coverings for all spectators. Masks are mandatory when moving about the event grounds.
"If the situation continues to improve, more tickets may be put on sale at the beginning of September," the release reads. "However, if the situation requires more stringent hygiene standards that force us to reduce the number of spectators on site, the tournament organisers will refund any supplementary tickets sold."
FFT plans to reveal complete guidelines for fans in attendance and will mandate certain limits to prevent large groups from gathering in all sections.
No more than four people are permitted to sit together in a group. One chair is to be left empty between each group of fans in the same row.
