Fans Set To Return To The Stadiums In UK
The UK government is exploring the possibility for fans to return to sports venues in some parts of England as early as December.
According to media reports, Prime Minister Boris Johnson privately told MPs on Monday that re-opening turnstiles as soon as possible was “a personal priority”.
The Department of Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS) is now working on allowing fans into stadia in areas where rates of infections are deemed sufficiently low – possibly before Christmas.
In UK Sports had previously been told to brace themselves for the threat of having no crowds until April. On Tuesday, the government said it had held “constructive” talks with football leaders on the return of fans, along with issues such as governance reforms, financial sustainability, and greater diversity.
