The Tour de France will not take place behind closed doors, according to the French Minister for Sports


If the Tour de France is run in September, it will not be behind closed doors, according to the French Minister of Sports.

Roxana Maracineanu originally suggested keeping fans away from the Grand Tour de France as a measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in March. However, with the race now postponed and scheduled to take place between August 29 and September 20, she says spectators should be allowed on the side of the road.

“If things continue to improve in September, major events such as Roland Garros and the Tour de France will take place,” said Maracineanu. “These two events include spectators. They are not kept behind closed doors. “

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said last week that the ban on major sporting events would be extended until at least September, as the world continues to try to stop transmission of the coronavirus.
