Wimbledon’s center and number one singles quarter-finals can be allowed to accommodate up to 100 per cent of the capacity. This arrangement will remain in place till the end of the tournament. Wimbledon organizers All England Club said on Sunday it would be the first time in Britain since the start of the coronavirus pandemic last year that an outdoor stadium will allow 100 per cent of capacity during a sporting event.
After the fourth round matches on Monday, the women’s quarterfinals will start from Tuesday and the men’s section from Wednesday. The women’s final will be held on Saturday while the men’s will be held on July 11. Before the start of the tournament, the club stated that they would be able to allow 100 per cent of the spectators to the stadium for only the two singles finals.
The center court has a capacity of 14,979 people while the number one court can hold 12,345 spectators at a time. The spectators, however, will have to report their COVID-19 status upon arrival to watch the tournament each day. Their COVID test should either be negative in the last 48 hours or they should have been fully immunized.
