Breaking News ! The EFL have confirmed that several fixtures will run this weekend with as part of the pilot programme that will see fans return to stadiums. Spectators have not been allowed inside sporting venues since March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the first phase of fans returning will begin this weekend. After receiving guidance, the maximum number of spectators allowed inside stadiums will be capped at 1,000, with discussions set to continue with the government about return for supporters’ in greater numbers in October onwards. It has been confirmed that three matches in the Championship, four in League One and three in League Two will take part in the pilot programme. But Bolton Wanderers' League Two clash against Colchester United at the JobServe Community Stadium has not been selected and will be played behind closed doors with no fans in attendance. And neither has Wigan Athletic's home clash at the DW Stadium against Gillingham has also not been included. Clubs in areas subject to a local lockdown, like Bolton currently is, are unable to apply to be part of the pilot.

. “It’s encouraging that we are in a position to move forward with the next phase of the pilot programme and give a small number of our Clubs the opportunity to welcome back up to a 1,000 fans this week,” said Parry “The health and well-being of supporters and their wider communities remains the priority, but as we showed at Cambridge, social distancing can be applied safely. By extending across more EFL Clubs we hope to further demonstrate that the measures developed can allow fans to return in greater numbers from as early as next month.

The Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, echoed Parry’s views in wanting fans back inside stadiums as soon as it is safe to do so. "I know that many fans are eager to return to football and that jobs depend on this too, so fans will welcome news that the EFL will be running number capped, covid secure, and socially distanced pilots this weekend,” said Dowden. “This will help us build the evidence base to see how we can return fans safely in greater numbers as soon as it is safe to do so."
