Fans Could Be Ordered To Not Sing, Shout Or Drink Alcohol When Stadiums Reopen

Fans Could Be Ordered To Not Sing, Shout Or Drink Alcohol When Stadiums Reopen

Fans could be told to not sing, shout or drink alcohol when they make their return to live Premier League football.

It was announced on Monday that up to 4000 fans will be allowed inside grounds from December 2 if the region is under Tier 1 restrictions, or 2000 if under Tier 2.

But Sportsmail report it could be a very different matchday experience thanks to a new 'Covid Code of Conduct.'

The document was sent out to clubs over the weekend and allegedly states: "This may include singing, shouting and alcohol consumption."

Face coverings will be mandatory at all times as will a health questionnaire, and different arrival times will be scheduled in an attempt to keep up social distancing.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated: "I can confirm that the national restrictions will end on December 2 and they will not be renewed. Collective worship, weddings and outdoor sports can resume and shops, personal care and the wider leisure sector can reopen.

While Premier League statement followed up on the government's announcement and added: "Fans have been greatly missed and we welcome the Prime Minister's announcement regarding the return of supporters for the first time since March, albeit at small numbers.

"Our ambition remains to work with Government to increase attendance to more substantial levels.

"Until this can be done, many fans will be unable to attend games and our clubs will continue to operate matches at a financial loss."
