The Chelsea team has started pre-season training ahead of next season.
The 2021-22 campaign will be an interesting one as capacity crowds could be allowed back in the stadiums.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Premier League stadiums will be allowed to operate at full capacity next season for the first time since March 2020 after the UK government announced the next stage in easing of the COVID-19 restrictions.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel hasn’t experienced a capacity crowd in the Premier League, but may have a feel of one when the new season starts.
There was a limited capacity for the FA Cup final against Leicester City last season, and Tuchel is looking forward to an exciting season with the fans back in the stadium.
“It’s always exciting to see the stadium and to see the new pitch and to feel a little bit of the atmosphere,” the Chelsea manager said.
“We’re happy to come back soon and play here in front of our spectators hopefully.
“If this is possible, it would be the first time that it’s a full stadium. We had a great experience against Leicester and we could feel what difference it will make to our sport and to the game.
“We can’t wait to experience it again but we have a long pre-season to go and there’s quite a lot of days in between.”
