Sports pilot events, no fans will be allowed UK PM Boris Johnson says
No fans will be allowed in the coming sports pilot events scheduled to hold this weekend, the United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said. The announcement comes after general restrictions were reintroduced for people in parts of northern England.
It was also hoped to permit 4,000 racegoers at Goodwood on Saturday. The new restrictions on fans will be enforced until at least 15 August.

Spectators were due to watch the first two days of two county cricket matches while fans were at the World Snooker Championship when it started on Friday.

Fans in stadiums: Boris Johnson says spectators could return in England in October.

"Pilots of larger crowds at sports venues will not take place," Johnson said at a news conference on Friday.

"I said from May we would not hesitate to put on the brakes at the slightest sign that the numbers were going in the wrong direction."

A statement from Goodwood racecourse said: "We are very disappointed for those who were hoping to attend tomorrow's event and for all those who have worked so hard to make it possible for spectators to be present.

"We will engage with public health authorities and DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) over a rescheduled pilot at the earliest opportunity."
