Premier League fans could be back in stadiums by October

A potential date has been set for fans to return to Premier League stadiums.

With the 2020/21 season approaching fast, we could see supporters take to the stands as soon as October after the Prime Minister announced the government will “pilot larger gatherings in venues like sports stadiums, with a view to a wider reopening in the autumn”.

While we won’t be seeing any fans during the remaining games of the current season, there is a small possibility that fans could be in the stands for the upcoming FA Cup final with Johnson announcing there will be a “restart of indoor performances to a live audience, subject to the success of pilots”.

This will go ahead starting on August 1st.

This is great news for Premier League fans but Boris Johnson also admitted any mass gathering must be done in a COVID-secure fashion.

If that wasn’t enough, Independent writer Miguel Delaney claims that a “working group” are considering a host of safety concerns in regards to fans returning to stadiums.

Stating that a target of 40% of seats could be available ahead of the next campaign.

There is no doubt that the omission of fans has affected some teams with Liverpool losing two and drawing two of their seven games after Project Restart. The newly crowned Champions dropped points in just two of the last 29 games before lockdown.

Aston Villa are another side feeling the impact of having no fans.

The self-proclaimed ‘Pride of the Midlands’ have picked up six points from a possible 24 and look destined to drop back into Championship.
