In a surprise announcement on Monday, the latest release of the Government Gazette has confirmed that a limited number of spectators will now be allowed to attend sporting events subject to strict adherence to all Covid-19 health protocols and social distancing measures.
This is very good news for Gold Circle and the horseracing fans who have been prevented from attending race meetings since March 2020 due to lock down restrictions.
Up to 2000 people will be able to utilise the outdoor grandstand facilities at Hollywoodbets Greyville from Wednesday 13 October. Entrance to Hollywoodbets Greyville will be through Gate 8 (cars) and Gate 7 (pedestrians) off Avondale Road where all attendees will be screened before accessing the race course.
The public are encouraged to fill out the pre-screening form available on the Gold Circle website (www.goldcircle.co.za) and social media channels to ensure expedited access to the race course. Food & beverage facilities will be open as well as the oncourse Totes and Bookmakers.
