Fans will be back for Premier League games on May 23
Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has announced the set date to ease coronavirus restrictions which means fans will see Manchester City lift the Premier League trophy.
Fans will be able to return to match venues before the end of the current Premier League campaign.
The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has announced May 17, 2021, as the set date to ease coronavirus restrictions.
Sky Sports reports that per the plans in the House of Commons to ease restrictions step-by-step across the whole country simultaneously instead of on a regional basis, 50 per cent capacity or 1000 will be allowed to attend indoor games as outdoor events will be 50 per cent capacity or 4,000.
The decision means fans will witness Manchester City lift the Premier League trophy against Everton at the Etihad on May 23, 2021.
The FA Cup final will be honoured on May 15, two days to the schedule and will be used as a test event.
Premier League Chief Executive, Richard Masters earlier assured fans there is a possibility of returning to watch games before the season ends.
After a scrap of the tier system in December due to the surge in coronavirus, fans have been enjoying the game on television.
“We are getting used to watching live football on television without fans in the stadiums, and I don't want to get used to it for much longer. Hopefully, we will see an end to that and a return of supporters as soon as possible," he told the Financial Times' Business of Football summit on Thursday.
“I am confident (fans will return next season). No one can say because this pandemic has a way of surprising you as it did over Christmas, but we haven't lost hope we might see a few back even this season, depending on what happens and the direction of the numbers and government decisions etc.”
