When World Superbike makes its return to Assen on July 23-25, after a one-year absence, it will do so in front of a potential crowd of just over 35,000 fans per day.

To put that into perspective, just 11,500 spectators were allowed on each day of the recent Assen MotoGP event.

While ongoing Covid restrictions mean that general admission areas and the paddock remain closed to the public, local regulations now allow for up to two-thirds of the Dutch circuit's 55,000 permanent grandstand seating capacity to be occupied for WorldSBK.

Catering and merchandise stands will also be open every day with 'vidiwalls' placed in front of the Geert Timmer stand and Main grandstand.

Tickets for the WorldSBK round can be purchased directly from the Assen website, with tickets for last year's cancelled event also still valid for 2021.

In order to gain access, fans will also need to activate a 'CoronaCheck' app and upload one of the following documents:

  • A vaccination certificate (full vaccination), or
  • A negative Covid-test, or
  • A proof of recovery.
