A total of 8000 fans will be allowed to watch the Carabao Cup final between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley in one month’s time.
The decision comes at a time when the Covid-19 vaccine is being rolled out in the UK with the government set to allow fans from both clubs to watch their teams in action for the first time in 2021.
TalkSport reported on Wednesday that 8,000 people will be allowed into Wembley for the match, with tickets to be split between both clubs and NHS Staff; the number set to be just 10% of the stadium capacity.
It will be City’s pursuit of a fourth consecutive Carabao Cup with Spurs out to win the trophy they last laid their hands on in 2008.
