At a meeting after the new Coronavirus Countermeasures Liaison Conference, Commissioner of Baseball Atsushi Saito and Chairman Mitsuru Murai of the J.League expressed their intention to hold a full-scale game from the start of the season with no spectator restrictions.
The government completed the transitional measures for up to 10,000 people, such as sporting events, which were being carried out as part of measures against the new coronavirus, last month, and from this month, it is possible to enter up to half of the capacity.
Under these circumstances, professional baseball and the J-League are repeatedly demonstrating technology to ease the restrictions on the number of spectators.
Commissioner Saito of professional baseball said at a press conference after the countermeasures liaison meeting with the J.League, "I want to fill up the seats next year even if various conditions are met. I want to set up a system before the start of the camp in February. From the start of the season, he expressed his intention to hold a full-packed game with no spectator restrictions.
In addition, J.League Chairman Murai said, "I want to aim for a form that can accommodate 100% of the spectators as much as possible. I want to be able to operate a highly mobile mechanism according to the infection situation."
Regarding the support with a voice that is currently restricted, Professor Kazuhiro Tateda of Toho University, an expert team, said, "First of all, I want to create a state where I can fully enter the spectators and watch the game. There is a thing to remove. "Keywords:
