British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced on Monday that up to 4,000 spectators will be allowed to attend Premier League games in lowest-risk tier one areas of England when a month-long national lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19 is lifted on Dec. 2.
Supporters have not been allowed into sporting venues since the first lockdown was announced in March, barring a few exceptions.
Premier League and most leagues across Europe actually feel the impact of the empty stadiums as it stands because like never before, away teams have picked points more than it used to be, bringing to fore the value of the vociferous home fans.
Financial implications have a huge part to play in this as well, with lots of EFL sides in dire trouble and in need of a bailout following the losses incurred with fans not being able to come in and thereby generate income.
