The Premier League has confirmed the final two rounds of games this season will be limited to home fans only.
Up to 10,000 home fans will be allowed to attend the final two rounds of top-flight games in England, subject to the UK government going ahead with the planned easing of coronavirus restrictions on May 17th.
Supporters are expected to be able to return to stadiums from May 17th in a reduced capacity, pending the final Government decision on planned Step 3 conditions, which will be announced no later than May 10th.
It was confirmed last week that fixtures have been rescheduled to provide an opportunity for each club to host one home game with supporters before the end of the season.
The second last round of games will be played on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday, May 19th with the final matches of the season kicking off at 4pm on Sunday, May 23rd.

A statement from the Premier League read: "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.
"The safety and security of supporters is of paramount importance. Clubs have a proven track record of providing Covid-safe environments and have operational plans in place ready to safely welcome supporters back to their stadiums.
"Fans have been greatly missed at Premier League matches and this marks a key step towards full stadiums, including away fans, from the start of the 2021/22 season."
