The long wait is over and football fans in the Premier League will once again be allowed to return to stadiums from 2nd December.
This follows an announcement from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday indicating fans will be allowed back when the national lockdown ends on December 2.
The stadiums will however carry just a fraction of their total capacity, with only up to 4,000 fans set to be allowed.

Areas with high Covid-19 infection rates will however not be allowed to host fans as a way of minimising the spread.
The stadiums have been without fans for almost all of the elite sporting occasions since March when the Coronavirus hit the world.
The latest development is sweet music to many of the fans' ears in the English top-flight league, who have waited for long to return to the stadium.
