Boris Johnson gives a new update that affects Premier League Clubs.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has affirmed Premier League clubs will be permitted to have fans in attendance for the closing two games of the season.

The UK Government has now declared the next stage of their roadmap with more Covid-19 restrictions easing.

This means that Premier League fans will be allowed into stadiums later this month for their final home game of the top-flight campaign.

Every team will now play one home match in front of their fans, with matches programmed to take place on May 18-19 and Sunday, May 23.

From May 17, outdoor sports venues around the country are permitted up to 10,000 viewers in attendance, or 25% capacity – whichever figure is lower.

“We’ll unlock the turnstiles to our sports stadia, subject to capacity limits.”


Despite the Prime Minister’s statement, away supporters will not be allowed in the final two rounds of fixtures, despite the continued lifting of restrictions.

The majority of football season in the UK has been played in front of empty stadiums due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

But the continued vaccine rollout has witnessed numbers dramatically drop around the country, meaning the Government are ready to relax some of their stringent restrictions. Luckily for football enthusiasts, this includes having supporters back in stadiums.

Some pilot events, including last month’s Carabao Cup final between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, have already taken place – with both clubs having 2,000 fans inside Wembley that day.
