It is worth mentioning that the World Taiwan Federation recently announced that the final stage of the 2020 Snooker World Championships will usher in the return of a small number of live audiences. According to the confirmation of the British government, on August 15th and 16th, some spectators can go to the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield to watch the World Snooker Championship finals live.
Prior to this, the World Championships allowed spectators to enter the first round of some games. But as the British government postponed the date of policy lifting to August 15, the World Snooker Championship chose to hold the game behind closed doors.
Although some spectators are allowed to enter the final stage to watch the game, the World Taiwan Federation and the local government have negotiated and issued a stricter spectator code of conduct to ensure the safety of everyone to the greatest extent and reduce the risk of contracting the new crown as much as possible.
The first stage of the final between O'Sullivan and K-Wilson will begin tonight at 8:30 Beijing time. (Finish)
