Winter Gardens set for reduced capacity on opening weekend of World Matchplay

Due to the extension of Coronavirus restrictions in the UK until July 19, fewer fans will be allowed in during the opening weekend of action at the World Matchplay.

Set to be played at the iconic Winter Gardens in Blackpool from July 17-25, this puts at least the first weekend off limits with the 17th and 18th seeing a capacity of 803 for the three sessions across the two days.

The capacity of the venue is 2000 with only 40% of ticket holders allowed to attend as of Friday July 25.

As a result, those with standing tickets won't be able to attend with season ticket holders preferred with the remaining tickets done through random draw in a ballot system with PDCTV annual members first to get picked.

If the restrictions/capacity change, those who missed out will get priority.
