The National Sports Commission is in talks with the Ministry of Health on increasing the capacity during sporting events.
The 50% capacity restriction is still in place and the Commission is proposing to increase this to 75%.
Sports Commission Chair, Peter Mazey says the Ministry will make the final decision.
“Well I like to see the stadium at 75% instead of 50 but that’s up to the Ministry of Health to make those decisions.”
Mazey says talks on having a sports bubble continues with the aim of being able to host more international events locally.
He says a sports bubble may be the next way forward for all sporting federations particularly those who are having difficulties in qualifying for the Olympic Games.
