The UK government has announced the tiers that each area of England will be a part of, which is set to have a direct impact on the sports teams that are based in each of these areas.
Find out below the stadium capacities of each football side from the English Premier League down to the EFL League Two.
The Premier League:
The EFL Championship:
The EFL League One:
The EFL League Two:
43 teams in the Premier League and English Football League (EFL) will be allowed to welcome up to 2,000 supporters into their stadiums as part of the new restrictions from the government. This will come as welcome news to clubs, particularly members of the EFL, who are more financially dependent on matchday revenue.
However, many teams will still be required to navigate the financial impact that has been brought on by COVID-19 whilst still in tier three. The government have confirmed that a review of the tiers will take place on December 16, which could see areas of England move into different tiers, allowing for more fans to return to stadiums or in some cases, it could mean that some clubs have to play their fixtures behind closed doors once again.
