Arsenal aim for October return of fans to Emirates Stadium
Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium could once again ring to the sound of chanting fans next month, with the English Premier League club on Wednesday saying it plans to allow a reduced crowd.
Matches have been played in empty stadiums since Premier League soccer’s coronavirus lockdown was lifted in June.
“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,” Arsenal said.
FA Cup winners Arsenal, who also claimed the Community Shield last week by beating Liverpool 5-4 on penalties, begin their Premier League campaign at Fulham on Sept. 12.
Gold season ticket holders and premium members will have priority access to the limited tickets available, it said.
