According to reports, there is a possibility of fans been allowed to watch Arsenal and Sheffield United game which will be played on the 3rd October. The Gunners hope they will be able to have supporters inside Emirates Stadium on a reduced capacity basis and in line with UK government guidelines.
Initially, only gold season ticket holders and premium members will have priority access to tickets. Football has been played behind closed doors since its return in June after the coronavirus shutdown. On Saturday, football fans were allowed into a Premier League ground for the first time in almost six months as 2500 people watched the friendly game between Chelsea and Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
That came as part of the government’s latest pilot scheme, with more to be announced in due course. Arsenal plays West Ham United on 20 September in their first home game of the new season but it will be played without fans. The north London club said they hope “to be able to safely increase the capacity” during the 2020-21 campaign, which starts on 12 September. Social distancing would be in place should the English FA allow fans to come and watch the game also all government guidelines will be observed.
