SLC CONSIDERING LIMITED SPECTATORS FOR LPL
Sopeningri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is considering gates for fans for the forthcoming Lanka Premier League (LPL) matches, according to Prof. Arjuna de Silva, the chairman of SLC’S medical unit.
“We may allow 25% of spectators to watch the LPL matches with a condition that they are fully vaccinated,” he said.
The second edition of the LPL, Sri Lanka’s biggest domestic T20 tournament, will run from December 4 to 23.
“The tournament is still more than two months away and we are assessing the situation and will then seek the country’s health ministry approval for fans’ entry.” “This will be a sort of an incentive for people to get the required doses of vaccination.
Young fans in the age group between 20-30 years are still concerned (about taking the vaccine) and this opportunity (entry at the stadium) will force them to be vaccinated,” de Silva added.
