Wimbledon 2021: A reduced capacity expected at the summer Grand Slam

This summer's Wimbledon championships will likely go ahead with a reduced capacity crowd, organisers said.

Tournament chiefs said they will react to changing circumstances which may result in an increase or decrease in numbers allowed in the grounds.

The overall attendance for the 2019 Wimbledon event - the last to be held - was 500,397 over the 13 days.

Organisers did not specify how many tickets will be initially available for the forthcoming competition.

A statement from Wimbledon added: "We want to ensure that we can leave decisions on public capacity as late as we can in order to welcome the maximum number of guests, and manage our ticket distribution accordingly.
