Fans return to matches: Government exploring potential return for December

Liverpool v West Ham Fans have not attended any Premier League matches since March.

The government is looking into the possibility of fans returning to sports venues in parts of England as early as next month.

According to sources, Prime Minister Boris Johnson told MPs privately on Monday that the early opening of the hubs was a personal priority.

The Department of Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS) is currently working to enable fans to visit stadiums in areas where the incidence is considered sufficiently low – perhaps before Christmas.

It was once said that the sport was prepared for the fact that there would be no crowds until April.

On Tuesday, the government said it had held constructive talks with football leaders on the return of the fans and on issues such as governance reforms, financial sustainability and greater diversity.

said Culture Minister Oliver Dowden, who held a 90-minute summit on the virtual future of football: I want to work with football to make progress on issues that are important for the long-term future of football.

Discussions will continue as we review the system of public administration.

Any proposal to link access to the playground to the level system that existed before the second national block came into force earlier this month has not yet been finalised or approved by the Cabinet.

However, as we know, officials are increasingly trying to work out a plan that will allow the gradual return of the fans to the first and eventually the second level of the country if the blockade is lifted, as hoped, in early December.

The partial return of the spectators, expected in the first half of the year, has dealt a fatal blow to the impoverished sports facilities. October in the middle of an increasing number of coronavirus cases.

The hubs have been closed since March, although the sport insisted that the pilot competition was safe with a socially dispersed crowd.

Another disagreement arose because some art centres such as O2 and the Royal Albert Hall could accommodate up to 5,000 spectators next month, leading to accusations of inconsistency and nepotism on the part of the sports industry.

Last week, during a parliamentary debate on the subject, the government refused to say when it expected viewers to return to sports centres in England. Nearly 200,000 people have signed petitions calling on fans to come back.

However, it is feared that opening up the steps could lead to a greater risk of transmission.

Everybody’s talking: Can I go back to my stadium? That’s what Sports Secretary Nigel Huddleston said last week.

Once you are in different levels, leagues and sports, you suddenly have a whole scale that goes far beyond what is acceptable at any given time.

But there seems to be a change of approach, which will be an important stimulus for the sport.

The summit also discussed the fact that the First League was unable to reach agreement with the EWL on financial support and ministers are, as we know, increasingly disappointed by this deadlock.

The reform of the payment system for parachutists for lower clubs was discussed at a meeting to encourage the sports authorities to cooperate following the recent tensions surrounding the rescue plan and the emergence of proposals for radical restructuring.
