The Sun report that fans might be allowed to enter football stadiums again from October but may not be allowed to sing during matches in order to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

The final part of the season was played behind closed doors as the stadiums and training grounds were turned into bio-secure environments in order to ensure the campaign could be completed.

The Sun reveals that, with test events scheduled for the middle of September, stadiums could be given the green light to allow a limited number of spectators from the start of October.

However, it is said that they will have to sign a code of conduct before purchasing a ticket which includes not holding the club responsible if they catch COVID-19 and avoiding chanting and singing in order to ensure that the virus does not spread.

It is claimed that strict social distancing protocols will be followed among the fans due to the reduced capacities, with plenty of handwashing and sanitiser stations set up.

A strict form of crowd management will also be enforced to ensure fans can enter and leave while maintaining sufficient distancing.

One can certainly understand why there would be a ban on singing and it is something that fans can put up with temporarily due to the circumstances. However, it would probably be quite difficult for the rule to be enforced, particularly when emotions run high during matches.
