Poor phrasing. 

A half-full Centre Court at Wimbledon will appear fuller because it’s quite small and compact. 

It looks full because everyone is seated together at the front of the court. The empty seats are all up the back and are not viewable on normal tv pictures. Kind of negates the purpose of only 50% capacity.

I wonder if this is common practice at all games at Wembley?

I went to a Spurs game a few years ago and we were similarly penned in down Wembley way before being allowed to go up to access the tube.

I remember similar at the other test events.  People weren’t evenly spread throughout stadiums.  Someone on here said it was by design (I had my doubts)

I’m not surprised tennis fans are treated very differently by the media than football fans though.

They did the same at the WCQ down there in 2016. Was infuriating as f**k.

Absolutely.

Tory voting unionist.

Pissed off with this nonsense.

I thought we were already looking at allowing full stadiums from the 10th August.

What's the problem?

It seemed bizarre, watching the tennis last night and the place looked packed, folk going mental at each point that was played, yet a handful of stewards were sat with a mask on. Looked daft tbh and there certainly wasn’t 50% spaces in the stands that were shown on telly. 
Leitch said last week we might get back to the Scottish football in a full stadium on 10th August which begs the question why not at the start of the season, in the middle of summer, outdoors and in line with other sports throughout UK, since it seems safe enough to pack Wimbledon, Wembley and at the Grand Prix in a few weeks’ time?

Spot on.

Still seeing so many idiots walking about in the fresh air wearing masks. Madness!!

Theyre making a statement that they can’t think for themselves and are happy to be subservient robots.

I’m wearing the mask less and less. Never outdoors in any place despite seeing terrified folk in the masks, goggles and gloves looking at me as if I’m a mass murderer for walking unmasked from my car to the front door of the supermarket! I pity these folk. I was in England with work the other week and in the bar, masks were patched by all by the end of the evening, including the lad behind the bar. It just felt better and allowed adults to make their personal choice since we’re mainly double- dunted  full of vaccines.

They won't all be idiots or subservient robots. It's perfectly understandable that some people are really struggling with this given the messages they've had  around Covid over the last 18 months.

Edit to add I'm not for a moment saying that's what we should be doing. We need to continue to bin the restrictions given the huge success of the vaccines. It's not that simple for some people though.

....and right on cue, watching some middle aged lump on Question Time say she is scared walking down the street without a mask and she won’t be taking it off anytime soon! It’s a serious point as these folk need help with their mental health and to reintegrate with society. At least the next girl speaking, as well as David Davies on the panel have said it’s more important we get back to normal.

Should be a lot earlier.

UK and SG got it wrong.

Should have been 21st June.

Our first domestic games start on the 10th July with the League Cup.

These early games don't really attract a lot of fans pre pandemic.

Maybe they should start there allowing more supporters entry to these games.
