EPL Clubs Appeal to UK Govt. on Return of Fans to Stadiums Next Month
Premier League clubs have urged the United Kingdom to stick to its proposal of allowing fans to return to stadia from first of next month.
The UK government has restricted pilot events to one thousand spectators and is reviewing its initial target date of when more fans could attend venues.
In a meeting held yesterday, the Premier League told clubs that stadia would be among the safest public places.
Majority of sports in England have been played behind closed doors since the coronavirus lockdown in March.
Premier League clubs had said that the loss of revenue generated at stadia from matches was having a significant impact across the League as well as on the national economy.
This weekend, seven fixtures in the English premier league will welcome crowds of up to one thousand.
