2020 FRENCH OPEN TOURNAMENT FACES FANS CUT DOWN

The French Open has cut down the number of fans that will be admitted to the arena to 1,000 per day after new coronavirus restrictions were imposed by the French government.

The clay-court Grand Slam, which starts on Sunday, had originally been set to welcome around 11,500 fans each day before that number was cut to 5,000 last week amid rising Covid-19 cases.

The event is usually in May-June but was postponed because of the pandemic.

Around 35,000 fans usually attend Roland Garros – a 12-hectare site with 16 courts – every day in the first week.

The new restrictions mean there will be a daily draw to decide which ticket holders are allowed in.
Those who are not selected will be refunded and given priority access to tickets.

The recent US Open was held behind closed doors in New York.
