UK government bans football fans from attending Premier League as well as lower league games

Football stadiums have been empty ever since play resumed in July. While fans in Germany have been allowed to attend games in cities where the number of coronavirus cases are less, some cities are still on the list of places where fans are not allowed to attend any games. 

Unfortunately, that seems to be the case for all of England across the Premier League, as well as the lower leagues of English football. 

This is because of the rising number of cases in the United Kingdom which requires the prevention of large gatherings to stop the infection from spreading. 

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson earlier confirmed plans for allowing spectators back into stadiums starting from October 1. However, MP Michael Gove revealed that those plans would have to be reviewed. 

England was slowly welcoming back fans into the stadium, with 1000 fans attending 10 games in the Football League, the third tier of English football. 

Premier League postponed until April 3 & Bundesliga postpones fixtures until April 2

The absence of fans in the stadium has resulted in clubs all across the world taking a massive financial hit. Mainly because ticket sales are the most regular and reliable source of income for the sporting clubs across all divisions. 

Wigan Athletic went into administration last season, and many other clubs could meet the same fate should fans not be allowed to attend games for the rest of the year. 

Premier League chief Richard Masters came out saying that it was of immense importance that fans were allowed back into stadiums. 

Masters projected that the financial losses could be as large as £700 million for the 20/21 season if no money is raised via ticket sales. 

Additionally, since all Premier League games are not televised, the teams with a lower number of games shown on TV will be at a disadvantage compared to the bigger clubs and could be forced into dire financial situations should the status quo persist.
