Singapore will allow fans at a sports event for the first time in months when limited numbers attend a ONE Championship MMA fight card next week, organizers said on Friday, October 23.
Up to 250 mask-wearing fans will be allowed at next Friday’s “ONE: Inside the Matrix” after undergoing antigen tests for the coronavirus.
The screening is part of a government pilot program that will see people tested for COVID-19 before large-scale events.
Antigen tests can identify at least 80% of infected people and provide results within 30 minutes, according to the government.
“ONE: Inside the Matrix”, featuring 6 fights, will be held on October 30 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, which holds up to 12,000 spectators.
ONE Championship held a closed-door event in Singapore this month, its first major international show since the coronavirus brought sport to a halt worldwide.
Singapore has recorded nearly 58,000 coronavirus cases and 28 deaths, but its outbreak has slowed markedly in recent weeks, allowing it to gradually ease curbs and travel restrictions. – Rappler.com
