Chabangu, Mr M to ask the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture

What are the reasons for continuing with closing off of stadiums to spectators of sporting events in the Republic?


The Stadiums are not closed off to spectators.

In October 2021 the Minister issued the Directions based on sub-regulations (10) (11) and (12) to Regulation 69 which stipulated that spectators at sports events are allowed but limited to 750 indoors and 2000 outdoors and, that if the venue is too small to accommodate the numbers without adequate social distancing, then not more than 50% of the capacity of the venue can be used.

In addition, the President of the Republic of South Africa announced that Stadiums would from 23 March 2022 be allowed to have spectators up 50 percent of the capacity of the venue.
