NSWRL CEO Dave Trodden has successfully lobbied the government to scrap the 500 person cap at community sport events.

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard has granted permission for “major recreation facilities”, where spectators can be seated and ticketed, to be filled up to 25 per cent capacity.

Most community venues will remain capped at 500 spectators per field.

EARLIER:

From this weekend, community sport spectators can gather on the sidelines, provided they maintain social distancing.

Previously, only one parent or family member per player was permitted to spectate.

However, the 500 person limit on spectators hasn’t been removed.

Mr Trodden told Ray Hadley it won’t be easy for volunteers to turn people away.

“They’ve created an almost impossible tension.”
