UK football fans to return to stadiums when the national lockdown lifts on December 2nd. Up to 4,000 fans will be allowed to attend out-door elite events in the lowest-risk areas under the new Covid-19 restrictions in the country.
While none of the Premier League clubs is in Tier 1 zones, Liverpool City Region and all 32 boroughs of London plus the city of London will fall under the high-alert zone and clubs in those areas can welcome up to 2,000 supporters each.
North London club Arsenal will be the first top-flight club to welcome 2,000 fans when they host Austrian side Rapid Vienna in their Europa League group game on December 3rd at the Emirates Stadium. The club said tickets would be sold on a first-come, first-served basis to members who already had registered for the ballot earlier this season.
Sportsmail revealed last week that the Department for Culture Media and Sport has submitted proposals to the Cabinet Office or the return of fans to grounds in December for the first time since March.
In his statement detailing the long-awaited return of spectators to live sporting events, Boris Johnson said: “In Tiers 1 and 2 spectator sports and business events will be free to resume inside and outside with capacity limits and social distancing.” He also added that outdoor grassroots sports and indoor sports facilities like gyms would be able to reopen.
The return of supporters following an eight-month absence due to COVID-19 restrictions means clubs must ensure local safety advisory groups are consulted and have given the go-ahead.
