Dubai World Cup to go ahead, but with no spectators

Time to put your fancy hat and suit back in storage for another year, as the Dubai World Cup has banned all spectators for this year’s event.

The race will still be held on March 28, but it will take place without any spectators due to fears over the Coronavirus.

The news was announced by the Dubai Racing Club and shared on Twitter by the Dubai Media Office.

All the race-day entertainment, including the post-race concert, have also been cancelled.

The event is strictly limited to racing officials, media and sponsors and riding teams.

All Dubai World Cup races will still go-ahead under normal conditions.
