In news that will delight sports fans, the government’s four-part roadmap also includes plans for up to 10,000 spectators to return to stadiums by mid-May. The PM told MPs earlier: “The turnstiles of our sports stadia will once again rotate.” The government says it will run a series of ‘pilot’ events for a small number of fans to attend in April. If successful, “up to 10,000 people or 25% of total seated capacity, whichever is lower” will be allowed in stadiums for sporting events, but not before 17 May. Meanwhile, outdoor sports including football, golf and tennis will be allowed to resume in England from 29 March. Leisure centres, gyms and swimming pools can open from 12 April.
