Manchester United: Old Trafford set to welcome 23,500 fans

Manchester United has announced that when the government guidelines allow fans to enter into stadiums again Old Trafford is ready to have 23,500 at any one time. Originally fans were expected to be allowed back into stadiums from October but due to the spike in COVID cases that was postponed united further notice.

This has left all clubs uncertain on when fans will be allowed to enter and cheer their team on again. No supporters have entered Old Trafford since March when Manchester United won 2-0 on the Manchester derby.

Chief operating officer of Manchester United, Collette Roche, spoke to Sky Sports: "We were really disappointed when the government decided not to allow fans back in the stadium in October because we've got everything in place to make sure we can do so safely,"

"As you have seen today, we've got all the COVID security measures and other processes ready to go. We spent around two months working with the government guidelines to develop the right processes and measures to make sure that we can have around 23,500 people in this stadium safely social distancing."

While many clubs were stressing about their players and staff, almost every clubs have banded together to put the health of supporters first without hesitation.
