The Project Restart saw no fans in the stadiums, as the Premier League season was finished in front of an empty stadium, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ahead of next season, there might be no room for away support, as only home supporters could be allowed to return to the stadiums during the first week of October as talks continue between the league and the government.

Football games have been played without fans since March when the season was postponed, but plans are in gear for a bit of normalcy to return next season.

According to the Daily Star, productive talks have been held between Premier League chiefs and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) on Thursday.

A statement read: “We are continuing to work hard with the Premier League and UK Government on plans to bring fans back to stadiums, initially with reduced capacities.”

Although UK prime minister Boris Johnson has previously said that the government is planning to open sports stadiums in October, clubs might only create room for home fans, and away fans might ‘not be allowed’ to attend games as they are not a priority for clubs, who want to allow season ticket holders back into their home stadiums.

The government aims to restrict attendances to between 20 and 30 per cent during the first phase of fans returning to stadiums.
