The UK Government has announced the formation of a working group that will explore high-tech solutions to allow more fans to return to stadiums.

The Sport Tech Innovation Group – announced in the wake of fans returning to a Premier League stadium for the first time in five months over the weekend at Brighton – will include sport, health and tech experts as well as the Premier League, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and other sporting bodies.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said the group, which will work with England’s deputy chief medical officer, Professor Jonathan Van Tam, has been formed to explore high-tech solutions that can get fans back into venues in greater numbers.
