After comments from Prime Minister Boris Johnson, there are fears that supporters could be forbidden from entering grounds for another six months

The Premier League has released an open letter urging the UK Government to allow fans back in stadiums as soon as possible.

The letter, which was co-signed by representatives from the English Football League (EFL), Football Association (FA), and Women’s FA, argues that recent test matches have demonstrated that fans can be allowed to safely return back into grounds in limited numbers.

Last month, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that new government restrictions designed to contain the spread of coronavirus could be in place for the next six months, which postponed plans for the return of fans to live sporting events in England starting on October 1.
