Fans will return to Premier League stadiums before the end of 2020, with the UK government announcing that areas in the lower risk tier of infections will allow up to a maximum of 4,000 fans back into the stadiums.
The United Kingdom was placed into a period of national lockdown until December 2, yet the situation is expected to somehow miraculous improve enough to allow fans back into grounds.
Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, made a virtual statement to the Commons from his own isolation property on Downing Street, and he confirmed that once the country returns to the three-tier system of COVID-19 restrictions, only the areas deemed to be highest risk will not be allowed to host fans.
In areas classed as high risk, which is tier 2, will be allowed up to 2,000 fans or 50 percent of the stadium’s capacity, depending on which number is lower.
This will be the first time since March that official matches will be able to welcome fans, something that coaches and players alike are desperate for.
