LONDON BUTTON (Reuters) - Boris Johnson has postponed the return of supporters to UK stadiums under new restrictions announced on Tuesday to deal with a second wave of coronavirus.

The government had planned to allow capacities of 25 to 33% from October 1 to support the sports sector after months of matches in private spectator stadiums.

"We piloted a few sites in outdoors and we want to be able, when the time comes, to allow people to come back to watch football and other sporting events, but it is true that we have to be careful at the moment ", he added.

" I think a massive reopening at this point would not be appropriate. "

The sport's governing bodies already seemed to have resigned themselves to this postponement and were preparing to ask for additional financial assistance.

The Rugby Football Union hoped to be able to accommodate 20,000 supporters at Twickenh am for the England - Barbarians game on October 25, but she ultimately suspended ticket sales.

While the risk of the virus spreading in outdoor stadiums is considered to be relatively low, the movement of crowds involved in a sporting event in and outside the arena is of greater concern.

"The virus is less likely to spread outdoors than indoors, but again, it is in the nature of sporting events that people mix a lot," said Michael Gove.
