With the Premier League fixtures for the 2020/21 season being announced last week, there is plenty of excitement around about the start of the new campaign.
While the season will start in front of empty stadiums, just as the 2019/20 season ended, that may not be the case for long if things go as planned.
The UK government announced earlier that spectators could be allowed back in sports stadia by October in case the trail events go smoothly.
However, it was revealed that several restrictions would be put in place including fans having to sign a code of conduct agreeing not to sing during matches.
The Sun has now revealed that Manchester United vs Tottenham, which is scheduled for October 3, could be the first game to see spectators back at the stadium.
However, Old Trafford will be far from full, with the report revealing that stadiums will only be filled to 25 per cent capacity in order to maintain the social distancing protocols.

All of us want to see the fans back in the stadia as soon as possible as football without the fans is simply not the same. Even as viewing spectacle on television, the fans and the atmosphere makes the Premier League what it is. It will be extremely weird to have a socially distanced 25 per cent full stadium with fans not being allowed to shout or sing. With the COVID-19 cases in the UK continuing to drop, hopefully, it will not be too long before clubs are given the green light to fill stadiums to capacity.
