Will capacity crowds be back at football stadiums in 2021/22 season?
The last 16 or so months have been absolute hell for everyone in the world as we all had to battle through a global lockdown.
we have been seeing positive signs of this during the Euros this summer with fans back in stadiums.
For every image that chronicled England’s Euro 2020 victory over Germany on Tuesday night, there was a backdrop to illustrate just what it meant to those lucky enough to be inside Wembley.
Euphoria and jubilation flooded down from the stands as the goals of Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane set up a quarter-final against Ukraine tomorrow night. “Only 40,000 (less than half capacity, as the lockdown restrictions that kept games behind closed doors for a year are slowly eased), but it was as good an atmosphere as I can remember in Wembley,” said an appreciative Gareth Southgate afterwards.
This is according to a report from The Athletic today, who believe the likes of Chelsea and co will have full stadiums for the first game back in the Premier League.
