Taipei, May 5 (CNA) Taiwan's professional baseball league, in which teams are currently playing behind closed-doors due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, has received approval for 200 fans per game but is urging the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) to approve 1,000 fans per game, the league's head said Tuesday.

Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) Commissioner John Wu (吳志揚) made the comment after teleconferencing with team representatives over the matter in response to an earlier announcement from the CECC that it would allow fan attendance at CPBL games.

According to Wu, the league originally asked for a maximum 500 people to attend each game.

Deducting players, coaches, cheerleaders of both teams as well as CPBL staffers, referees, media members and broadcasting crew, who are already allowed to attend, Wu said the league first asked for 200 fans to be able to buy tickets to watch CPBL games.    [FULL  STORY]
