An England cricket Test match and horse racing's Royal Ascot are among the next pilot events to test the return of big crowds to sports venues.
The second Test of the men's series against New Zealand, beginning on 10 June at Edgbaston, will be allowed to have more than 18,000 fans each day.
And Royal Ascot, which runs from 15-19 June, will be permitted to host 12,000 spectators each day.
That is more than double what the race meeting had been expecting.
England's first two group games in Euro 2020 will also be part of the next stage of the pilot project, as has already been reported, with 20,000 fans permitted at Wembley.
Current government guidance is that up to 10,000 spectators, but no more than 25% of capacity, are allowed in stadiums while for non-seated outdoor venues like racecourses there is a current cap of 4,000.
