Premier League teams hope to host 500 rival team fans in their stadiums before the end of the season. In fact, they have been told to prepare for this possibility for the last two games of the course, at which time 10,000 fans are also expected to return to the fields.
The Daily Mail indicates that Public Health England signed in favor of the return of fans to football stadiums.
According to the British government’s roadmap, the clubs are already preparing to host up to 10,000 people, or 25 percent of the capacity, from May 17, also including rival fans.
The Premier League plans to delay the penultimate round of matches to allow for a home crowd so that each club can play a home game against their own home crowd.
As a result, the 37th day of the Premier would go on to be played on May 18 and 19, one day after the start of the third stage of the British government’s Covid roadmap. The final day will take place shortly after, on Sunday, May 23.
Premier League rules require clubs to allow visiting fans access to 10 percent of the stadium’s capacity, up to a maximum of 3,000. However, it has been proposed to reduce that requirement to five percent to encourage local security authorities to approve the measure.
