Crowds to Be Admitted Soon
The French government has announced that all sports stadia, including racecourses, will be reopened to the paying public from
July 11, with a limit of 5,000 people in the initial stages.
The news came as part of a raft of announcements surrounding the easing of lockdown restrictions, following a late-night session of the Defence and National Security Council (CSDN), France's equivalent of the COBRA committee.
In a separate development, France Galop confirmed meetings scheduled for Auteuil, Longchamp and Saint-Cloud next week will take place at their intended venues, meaning racing will return to the capital for the first time since May 19.
Hers's hoping that the UK and Ireland will follow as soon as possible after then.
