How Many Fans Each Premier League Club Are Allowed In Their Stadium Following New Coronavirus Tiers
Premier League fans will be welcomed back to grounds on December 2 - but 10 teams will still play in an empty stadium.
UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced the latest coronavirus tier restrictions on Thursday afternoon.
No area with a Premier League ground is in Tier 1, which means the maximum capacity of 4000 fans will not be allowed.
Ten teams are in Tier 2 however, which means up to 2000 fans can return to some stadiums.
Check out the entire list below.

Brighton (AMEX Stadium)
Chelsea (Stamford Bridge)

Arsenal will be the first team to welcome fans back to their ground, when they host Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday, December 3.
A Premier League statement said earlier this week: "Fans have been greatly missed at Premier League matches and therefore we welcome the prime minister's announcement regarding the return of supporters for the first time since March, albeit at small numbers.
The only places that would be allowed up to 4,000 fans into sport are these Tier 1 areas: Isle of Wight, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly- Rob Harris (@RobHarris) November 26, 2020
"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.
"Our priority continues to be the agreement of a roadmap, with DCMS and the Sports Technology and Innovation Group, for pilot events that can help our clubs quickly scale up to larger capacities in line with the Sports Ground Safety Authority's Covid-secure guidelines and beyond.
"Premier League clubs have a proven track record of achieving high-biosecurity standards and we believe we can play a significant role in the Government's rapid turnaround testing initiative. We look forward to working with government on their next steps."
