Australia’s deputy medical officer Paul Kelly told the media that there are provisions that will allow people to start watching sports again in the stadium. “We will try and get back as normal as we can, and I’d like to join many people to watch a football match.

In May, Australia ‘s national cabinet decided on a three-stage plan to take away a large part of the social distance by July, though it did mention crowds at sporting venues could be problematic. The restriction was slowly eased over the past few weeks by states and territories across Australia.
