Fresh air blows for the supporters of the Premier League club as they would be allowed into the Stadium to watch the Match Come on 18th and 19th May 2021.
There is a breath of fresh air for supporters to watch the Premier League live at the stadium. That was after the British government relaxed lockdown rules imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, there is a special scheme applied in this policy. New supporters can watch the match in the last two weeks of the Premier League. There are also other restrictions and rules in place, such as what?
Premier League Week 37 is held early
Match of Week 37 is supposed to be played on 20 May 2021. However, the Premier League moves it to 18 and 19 May 2021.
Meanwhile, the party for the last week starts on May 23, 2021. Until now, a new schedule is still waiting.
It was in weeks 37 and 38 that fans were allowed to watch live at the stadium.
It is hoped that the presence of fans can add to the excitement of the Premier League this season which was sluggish due to the rules without spectators.
2. Strict rules are to be enforced
The fans who attended were also the only hosts. The number of spectators was limited, only a quarter of the stadium’s capacity. Or, a maximum of only 10 thousand fans can enter the stadium.
“The Premier League confirms that the final two weeks of the 2020/21 season can be attended by home fans, following the government’s policy of loosening the lockdown in the British region,” said a Premier League statement reported by the Daily Mirror.
3. Waiting for British government approval
In fact, this plan is also still awaiting approval from the British government. With the proposed scheme, it is hoped that the home supporters can come directly to the stadium.
“Fans have been missed so much in the Premier League match. This step is the key to returning the fans to the stadium at full capacity, including for the visiting fans, since the start of the 2021/22 season,” explained the PL.
