LEIGH Centurions fans will have to wait a little longer before they are allowed admission to games.

Supporters are eager to see the team after winning a place in the 2021 Super League.

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson today announced that spectators will not be able to return to sporting venues in England until May 17 at the earliest.

The news formed part of Johnson's 'road map' for the easing of lockdown restrictions to limit the spread of coronavirus, which was announced in the House of Commons on Monday afternoon.

It opens up the possibility of spectators returning to events over the summer, including rugby league, Euro 2020, Wimbledon, cricket internationals and county matches, depending on whether the conditions for easing restrictions have been met by May 17.

Indoor events will be capped at 50 per cent capacity or 1,000, whichever is lower, and for outdoor events this will be 50 per cent capacity or 4,000, whichever is lower.

In Centurions' case that would mean that a gate of 4,000 would be allowed in initially.

The road map includes special provision for large, outdoor, seated venues where crowds can be safely distributed, allowing up to 10,000 people or 25 per cent of total seated capacity, whichever is lower.

Pilots will also run to examine how such events can take place without the need for social distancing using other mitigations such as testing, the Government said.

In a further part of the announcement, outdoor sportswill be allowed to resume from 29 March.
