Arsenal plan to welcome fans back to the Emirates at reduced capacity in October

Arsenal are working on a plan to welcome fans back to the Emirates stadium at reduced capacity for their Premier League game against Sheffield United on October 3rd, according to Charles Watts of Goal.

Due to the pandemic, fans have been unable to attend matches in stadiums for the last few months. The last game that Arsenal played with fans in attendance was against West Ham United at the Emirates on March 7th. The Gunners won that game 1-0 courtesy of a late Alexander Lacazette strike. 

English football was suspended in March due to the coronavirus and resumed without supporters in stadiums in June.

The North London club will reportedly provide further details regarding fan attendance at reduced capacity in the next fortnight. English football is taking all necessary measures to ensure the safety of fans before giving the green light to fan attendance in stadiums. 

The Gunners kick off their 2020/21 Premier League campaign away to Fulham on September 12th. An especially exciting bit of news is that the first North London derby will take place on December 5th and as long as everything works out as planned, fans will be able to attend the feisty derby at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. 

Players and coaches have talked about how much they miss the fans at games and everybody involved will no doubt be thrilled about the possibility of seeing supporters inside football stadiums in the near future.
