EFL Spectators Given Go-Ahead to Return to Matches in Pilot Event
Fans of English football will be allowed to return to matches in the EFL for the first time since March, after a trial to allow up to 1,000 spectators into matches was given the go-ahead by the government.
Football has been played behind closed doors across the UK because of the coronavirus pandemic, but the trial offers renewed hope for fans to attend live matches.
Per Sky Sports, an EFL spokesman stated: “The EFL remains in discussions with the government about the pilot programme which may include a limited number of further pilot matches during September with capacity limited to 1,000.
