For the first time in England, spectators arrived at the sporting event when the Friendship cricket match was played between Surrey and Middlesex at 'The Oval'. Precautionary measures to prevent the corona virus were tested in October as part of a wider opening of stadiums.
A line between the two stands was left blank and 1000 spectators were present to watch this friendly match. During this, consultation signs were also put up. There was a difference of two seats between the family groups.
A limited number of people were given seats at the stadium in South London. Surrey chief executive Richard Gould said he received 10,000 calls for club seats. He said, 'Cricket is being played and people are looking happy. I hope this is not the only chance. I think it depends on how good this test is.'
Gould said, 'There are a lot of people from the government and security officials here and I think they will decide by looking at it. We hope that if things go well, it will speed things up.
Some spectators will also be allowed to attend the World Snooker Championships in Sheffield from Friday, which is part of the government's spectators' return to the stadium. The plan also includes the Glorious Goodwood Horse Race Festival on Saturday.
