Hope has been restored as Premier League writes to the Government demanding a high increase in fans for the next season football activities as per the early suggestion of not more than 1000 persons.

Recalled that fans were restricted from football club activities following the deadly pandemic virus which started early March.

The Premier revealed that since the ban of fans from football events, clubs have lost a huge sum of income, about 100,000 million pounds monthly in addition to rendering so many unemployed.

They emphasized therefore on the need for the government to review the number of fans scheduled to attend the match opening scheduled for Oct at different clubs.

According to man united media in a statement revealed by a premier league spokesperson on Friday, who says the essence of massive testing of fans to enable safety has been the top priority of the premier league. While proposing that a large number of fans should be allowed entry in order to aid study the effective safety of fans across clubs and equally increase profit.

See the statement according to the premier league spokesperson on fans resumption to the stadium;

“The Premier League has written to the government today to express its concern at the decisions taken to restrict, and potentially delay, the planned program for the return of fans to football stadiums.

“With test events now capped at 1,000 supporters, we believe they will not provide any opportunity to properly test and evaluate measures designed to maximize fan safety.

“Therefore, Premier League clubs will defer holding test events until a sufficient number of fans are allowed back to enable thorough trials to take place. At 1,000 supporters, not only would there be little to learn from a test event, but each match would be heavily loss-making.

 “For each month of the season without fans, more than £100 million is lost to football across the leagues, with consequent damage to the local and national economy. It also harms the employment prospects of more than 100,000 people whose jobs depend on matchday activities.

“Our clubs have already prepared test events and can offer larger-scale trials to prove it is possible to produce bio-secure, safe environments, as was proved through the successful delivery of Project Restart.

“The Premier League recognizes the ambition of the government’s Operation Moonshot and will support the project’s objectives to get fans back into stadiums. However, we believe measures are already available which would allow the safe return of fans and should also be activated now.

“As the government begins its review of the 1 October date for the return of spectators to sport, the Premier League asks that the high safety standards which can be achieved by our clubs are fully taken into account before any decision is taken and that sport is not left behind other industries.”
