Some Sports fans are now allowed back to watch live sports action from December 2nd in UK, MySportDab reports.
But there are strict varying limits on stadiums in different areas, depending on which league, each venue, and its capacity.
The government will allow around 4,000 fans, or 50 per cent of a stadium’s capacity for outdoor events in some areas.
For indoor sports in Tier 1 areas, the maximum no of fans allowed is around 2,000 or 50 per cent of capacity.
In Tier 2 areas, these numbers must be half.
For outdoor events in Tier 2 areas, a maximum of 2,000 fans or low will be allowed.
However, Tier 3 areas will have to comply with a ban of fans attending sporting events.
In his statement speaking about the return of fans to live sports, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
‘In Tiers 1 and 2 areas, sports fans and business events will be free to resume in and outside with social distancing and capacity limits.’
Mr Johnson also confirmed that outdoor sports and indoor sports facilities like gyms can now reopen.
However, He warned that at the end of lockdown more towns, cities and local authorities would be more around.
The tiers for each area in the UK will be announced on Thursday.
Strict rules on travelling in different tiers makes it difficult for fans to attend matches, even if they are lucky enough to get a ticket.
Following today’s statement by the Prime Minister, MPs will vote on his proposals in the week.
Elite sports continued behind closed doors during the four weeks lockdown, while grassroots sport stopped since 5 November.
Many sports clubs, fans were shocked by today’s announcement, and will now rush to allow fans in as soon as possible.
The most high-profile sports event planned for December 2 is Manchester United’s Champions League match against PSG at Old Trafford.
