Arsenal Ready to Welcome Back Spectators against Sheffield UnitedPeter Houghton
The mighty Arsenal, winners of the last 2 available domestic trophies, have become the first Club to announce their transition to stage 5, announcing that on 3 October, they intend to allow spectators back into the Emirates Stadium for their Premier League match against Sheffield United.
The FSOA understands that the ticketing allocation method has been agreed with Gold Members and some Season Ticket Holders waiting in earnest to attend and the English football world awaits!
Obviously, due to the post-Covid scenario capacities will be reduced, but subject to governmental go-ahead, it’s looking like all systems go for John, Sharon & Mark to welcome back a proportion of their fans.
October 3 & 4 would the first available weekend for the reintroduction of spectators, assuming that the government doesn’t present football with one of its now infamous U-turns and the Gunners looks certain to literally jump the gun to try to get an attended fixture in place before the October Internation Break.
