Newsletter, Editor-Picklist,

Novocastrians wishing to participate in the Newcastle Cup will need to win a ticket in a vote on Monday, but admission to the city’s first top-class world surfing event since 1990 is free. In an exclusive Q & A announced in Newcastle Herald today, Andrew Stark, general manager of the World Surf League’s Asia Pacific region, said the event has a capacity of 3000 people under the state’s COVID-19. Given that, voting is the “fairest way” to assign tickets. “We are affiliated with Ticketek and tickets will be distributed randomly. Fans can participate in the vote and book tickets from 10am on Monday, March 22nd,” he said. “Then the vote ends on the 29th. Limited to 4 tickets per person per day.” I hope there are 20,000 to 30,000 people on the beach, but unfortunately because of COVID. The Newcastle Cup is scheduled to start on April 1st, but may not end depending on whether the contest is delayed to wait for the right conditions. Until April 11th. Tickets can be registered for any or all of the 11 days. The contest only runs for about 5-6 days, but if conditions are not met, weekdays are possible in the 11-day window. Tickets said Stark said the event would look and feel “quite different from Surfaced” with fences set up around the Meleweather Beach area. “Government as part of a permit from the council and NSW, we will have to fence the venue,” he said. Said. “We need to limit the number of visitors, so we need to put in place the infrastructure to do that.” We need to block the fence because we can’t see the people gathering around the venue. Through the fence. It causes COVID problems. “We have to follow all the guidelines we need … and the event will look different from the surface in that respect.” It’s not a choice. Thousands of fans want to be on the beach, but that’s not the world we live in. “Audiences will spread along the sandy beaches and beach promenades,” Stark said, and advised ticket owners to “bring a beach chair.” Seating space is on a first-come, first-served basis. Why does WSL need a free ticket to enjoy these events? The COVID-19 regulation limits capacity for upcoming Australian events. This is to ensure the safety of athletes. , Staff, local communities, we keep the size of the crowd within the New South Wales government’s limit of 3,000 people.
