League welcomes Prime Minister’s confirmation that fans can return to stadiums next week

The Premier League welcomes the Prime Minister's confirmation today that further easing of lockdown restrictions enables supporters to return to stadiums next week.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "It will be brilliant to see fans back. They have been hugely missed and the Premier League has not been the same without them. Their presence will ensure a fantastic finale to the end of our season.

"Although only a small number of home fans will be at our matches next week, this is an important step in our return to normality.

"Our priority is to have full vibrant stadiums – including away supporters - from the start of next season"

Richard Masters, Premier League CEO

"We will continue to work with the Government and other authorities as our priority is to have full vibrant stadiums – including away supporters - from the start of next season. Only then will we get back to the real Premier League."

Clubs have a proven track record of delivering COVID-safe environments and have plans to ensure the safe return of their fans for fixtures played on Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 May, and the final day of the season on Sunday 23 May.
