Only two Premier League clubs will be allowed maximum allocation of fans back

Premier League clubs and fans are waiting to see what tier their local area will be in beyond December 2.

An announcement on the regions across England and what restrictions they will be under is due on Thursday.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed earlier on Monday the intention to bring supporters back for outdoor sporting events.

A maximum of 4,000 spectators or 50 per cent capacity, whichever is lower, and 2,000 spectators or 50 per cent capacity for indoors, again whichever is lower, is poised for those in Tier 1.

Meanwhile in Tier 2, 2,000 spectators or 50 per cent capacity outdoors, whichever is lower, and 1,000 spectators or 50 per cent capacity for indoors, again whichever is lower, will be allowed.

Boris Johnson’s latest Covid-19 plans will allow 4,000 spectators into Premier League grounds – but which team will be affected most by this?

For Tier 3, though, a ban on spectators will remain to ensure social distancing is still enforced.

As things stand, only two Premier League clubs – Brighton and Southampton – will be allowed to let in the maximum 4,000 fans, according to the Mirror.

They are expected to remain under Tier 1 Covid-19 restrictions down on the south coast after the lockdown ends on December 2.

Southampton fans will be buzzing to be back watching their team, who are up in fifth place in the Premier League table

Fans of other teams are likely to face tighter restrictions in Tier 2.

Meanwhile, some clubs could be forced to continue playing totally behind closed doors depending on Thursday’s further announcement.

Each Premier League side will will decide on how their tickets are allocated, with most having opted for a ballot system earlier this year in preparation for this.

No away supporters will be given any precedent at grounds up and down the country, though.

For the two clubs who are set to begin with the most fans at games, Brighton and Southampton will discover for sure in three days’ time.

Brighton sit 16th in the table and ironically host Southampton at the Amex Stadium on the weekend of December 5/6.

The Saints, meanwhile, are flying high in fifth and welcome Sheffield United to St Mary’s on the weekend of December 12/13.
