Cheltenham Racecourse will welcome spectators back to the venue following the UK Government’s announcement.
Horse racing returned to Cheltenham Racecourse in October with The Showcase but was held behind closed doors. However the Jockey Club – who owns Cheltenham Racecourse, among other racing venues – have announced that they will be welcoming spectators back to the venue.
This comes after the UK Government’s announcement that Gloucestershire is in Tier 2 (High) which, according to the Government’s website, means that sporting events can take place with a limited capacity of either 50 per cent or 2,000 people outdoors – whichever is lower – and 50 per cent capacity or 1,000 people indoors – whichever is lower.
Cheltenham Racecourse announced the news on Twitter in a Tweet that read: “Following the news that Cheltenham Racecourse is in a Tier 2 area of England, we will be now able to welcome a limited number of racegoers when we race after 2nd December 2020.”
And a statement on Cheltenham Racecourse’s website reads: “Following the news that Cheltenham Racecourse is in a Tier 2 area of England, we will be now able to welcome a limited number of racegoers when we race after 2nd December 2020. We’re looking forward to opening our doors again and working hard to make sure we provide an enjoyable and safe experience for everyone who joins us on course.
“Please continue to visit our website and check our social media channels and email newsletters for further ticketing and attendance details.”
The next meet at Cheltenham Racecourse will be The International which will take place on Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12.
