Away fans and transfer windows
The Premier League have today outlined plans for the return of supporters to games for the final two game weeks of the 2020/21 season.
Already we know that our home game against Liverpool has been put back to the Tuesday or Wednesday, immediately after the relaxing of the rules on Monday, 17th May which, provided there are no changes, will allow clubs to admit either 10,000 spectators or 25% of capacity for those grounds that, like ours, holds less than 40,000.
Today, with policing and safety issues paramount, the league revealed that previous plans to admit 500 away fans has now been scrapped, making it home fans only. This means no Liverpool fans at the Turf for that final home game and also no Burnley fans for the final game of the season against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
The Premier League said: “Following consultation with clubs, it was agreed matches would not be open to away supporters due to varying operational challenges across the League and the need to deliver a consistent approach, while maximising the opportunity for home fan attendance.”
Burnley have, as yet, not released any information regarding tickets for the Liverpool game.
Also today, the League have confirmed the dates for the opening and closing of the transfer window this summer. It will be open for 12 weeks – opening on 9th June 2021 and closing at 11 p.m. on 31st August which aligns with other European leagues.
The transfer window dates have been added to our Friendlies and Key Dates which can be found on the top menu.Share this page :
