Premier League push for October 1 date for the return of fans

 

 

The Premier League have released a statement on Thursday reaffirming their desire for supporters to return safely to grounds from October 1.

The government are desperately trying to stop a second wave of coronavirus and Premier League clubs fear that games could be played behind closed doors until November now.

Along with football, other major sports have voiced their concerns over when they will be able to get spectators safely back inside grounds, with the initially planned return date of October 1 looking more unlikely as the days go by.

But on Thursday evening, the Premier League released a statement claiming the continued loss of matchday revenue is hugely harming football finances and that they remain committed to allowing some fans back at the beginning of October.

The statement read:

‘The Premier League and its clubs met today to discuss the return of supporters to stadiums.

‘Safety remains the number one priority and clubs reiterated their commitment to ensuring Premier League stadiums will be among the safest public places, through the effective use of a wide range of mitigation measures. 

‘Clubs will adopt a range of common standards, which will help deliver bio-secure, safe environments for fans across the League.

‘Clubs reaffirmed that the continued loss of matchday revenues is having a significant impact across the League as well as on the football pyramid and local and national economies.

‘Taking into account the high safety standards which will be set by the Premier League in conjunction with the relevant public authorities, the League and clubs urge Government to remain committed to the 1 October date for the controlled return of fans to sporting venues.’
