Arsenal hoping to welcome limited numbers of fans to home matches

Arsenal could allow a limited number of fans into the Emirates Stadium for their Premier League home match against Sheffield United on October 3.

The Gunners have said they are working with authorities on plans to welcome back fans in line with the latest UK Government guidelines.

An Arsenal statement said: “In recent months we have been working very hard with the relevant authorities on plans to bring fans back to stadiums, and specifically Emirates Stadium, initially with reduced capacities.

“Although our home fixture against West Ham United on Sunday 20 September will be played behind closed doors, based on the current UK Government guidelines, we hope to be able to welcome supporters back to Emirates Stadium on a reduced-capacity basis from the Sheffield United game scheduled for Saturday 3 October.”

Initially, the limited tickets would only be made available to the club’s gold season ticket holders and premium members.

Any fans in attendance would need to social distance while inside the stadium, while other measures including new hygiene protocols would also be in place to avoid any physical contact.

Anyone who attends the match would need to agree to a code of conduct.

On Saturday, 2,500 fans watched Brighton’s friendly against Chelsea at the Amex Stadium – the first time spectators have been allowed inside a Premier League stadium since March.
