Fans returning to stadiums

The Government have announced that the above may well be possible from October........there will be some fans allowed into Pilot projects at Cricket on 26/27th July at the Oval.
Snookers World Championship at the Crucible 31st July onwards and at Glorious Goodwood from 1st August which has a figure of 5,000 fans etc quoted.
It states that other Pilots in other sports are being considered and it will be a long time before Stadiums are back to capacity (that statement will throw up lots of questions!)

There are obviously guidelines to adhere to:
Screening at entrances
Additional Hygiene facilities
Crowd management plans including social distancing, one way systems etc

Good news in part but it doesn’t go into detail regarding what percentage of stadium capacities will be considered.
The logistics of this are going to be huge.
