Sporting Events Allowed To Resume With Reduced Numbers Under New Covid Guidelines

People will be allowed to attend sporting events in limited numbers under government's new 'Living with Covid' plan announced this afternoon.

From tomorrow, 200 spectators will be permitted into venues which would usually have the capacity to host crowds of 5,000 or more.

Smaller grounds will be able to admit 100 people while indoor events will be limited to 50.

The GAA, FAI and IRFU have set up a working group to develop a roadmap for the return of spectators to stadiums.

Representatives of Sport Ireland will also work with the group which will be chaired by Aviva Stadium director, Martin Murphy.
