West Ham United Vs Manchester United The First Premier League Game With Fans Since March

West Ham United Vs Manchester United The First Premier League Game With Fans Since March

West Ham United's home game against Manchester United in nine days time will be the first Premier League game with fans since March.

Leicester City's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Monday Night Football was the last time fans were allowed inside the ground in England's top tier, back on March 9th, but that is set to change.

On Thursday they announced which areas of the country would be in which tiers, with tier one allowing 4,000 fans, tier two up to 2,000 fans and none in tier three.

The Premier League's kick off times for December were then announced later in the day, paving the way to work out when fans would be allowed back in stadiums.

Aston Villa's home game against Newcastle, kicks off the footballing weekend on Friday December 4th but Birmingham is in tier three so no fans are allowed.

The following day starts with Burnley vs Everton at 12.30pm, followed by Manchester City vs Fulham at 3pm but, with both Lancashire and Greater Manchester also in the highest tier, West Ham's home game at the London Stadium against Manchester United will be the first in nearly nine months to include fans in the ground.

The day finished with Chelsea vs Leeds United which should also see fans inside Stamford Bridge. On the Sunday West Brom vs Crystal Palace and Sheffield United vs Leicester City won't have fans in the opening games of the day.

However that afternoon the first north London derby of the season, as Spurs host Arsenal, will let 2,000 fans into the ground, and Liverpool vs Wolves should have the same.

The Gunners will actually be the first Premier League side to have fans in the ground but for their Europa League tie against Rapid Wien on December 3rd.

The most recent occasion fans had been allowed in any Premier League stadium had been Liverpool's loss to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last season.

Clubs lower down the leagues will also be desperate to gets fans back in as they've lost the revenue from the stands being empty.
