Premier League: Fans set to return to stadiums from May


UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed football fans will be allowed to return to stadiums from May 17, at the earliest. 

This means fans will be able to watch the last match of the campaign, which is set for May 23rd.

According to Johnson, a quarter of the total capacity will be allowed for large venues, with up to 4,000 fans for the smaller stadia.


An EFL spokesperson said: “Following a successful fan pilot programme in the Autumn, the EFL and member clubs have shown test events for fans can be safely delivered with the appropriate measures in place.

“With the Carabao Cup Final taking place on 25 April and the culmination of the regular EFL season on 8/9 May, we look forward to engaging with the Government about its pilot programme and will be working to welcome as many fans as possible to the Sky Bet Play-Off Finals which will conclude the 2020-21 season on the Spring Bank Holiday weekend.”
