The World Snooker Championship has outlined the steps fans will have to take in accordance with Covid-19 protocols after it has been revealed that the final is slated to proceed with a full attendance.

The tournament has already been confirmed as part of the government’s series of spring and summer pilot events to gather evidence on the risks associated with Covid-19 transmission routes.

Now details have emerged as to where and when spectators will be tested for Covid-19, along with confirmation that fans will not have to pay for the service before going to the Crucible.

There will be two tests for spectators heading for the World Snooker Championship, the first of which will take place at a government testing center in their area. This test is free and it is stipulated that it must take place on the day of attending a session, or the day before.

All spectators will also be required to ‘check-in’ at the venue using the NHS Track and Trace app.

Participants will then be required to take a post-event test five days after attending the tournament and this will be in the form of a free home test kit – World Snooker declined to clarify whether the second test is paid for by the government or the sports organization itself , although both test incidents are free of charge for fans.

HOW THE WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP WILL WORK

Round 1 – Saturday April 17 to Wednesday April 21

The venue will operate with a 33% spectator capacity. This will be managed according to social distance guidelines similar to those in effect at the end of the Betfred World Cup 2020 and one meter + distance will be observed between different ticket groups / bookings.

Social distance will be observed throughout the building and external queue areas and face covers will have to be worn in the building all the time, including when seated.

Round 2 – Thursday April 22 to Monday April 26

The location will operate at 50% capacity. Bookings are grouped in groups of 1 or 2 and the available seats are spread around the venue to avoid different parties sitting next to each other.

No social distance will be expected in this capacity, although some risk mitigation procedures are needed to reduce the risk of transmission, including wearing face coverings in the hall.

Quarter-finals and semi-finals – Tuesday April 27 to Saturday May 1

The location will operate at 75% capacity. It will not be possible to have different parties sit next to each other.

No social distance will be expected in this capacity, although some risk mitigation procedures are needed to reduce the risk of transmission, including wearing face coverings in the hall.
