Fri 27 November 2020 | 10:23

The Red Devils are not allowed to permit their fans into Old Trafford until they enter tier 2 state.

Starting from December 2nd some of

Premier League

teams will be allowed to welcome back their fans into their stadiums, but that privilege did not include

Manchester United

. According to the new Covid-19 restrictions, stadiums that are placed in tier 1 and tier 2 areas will be allowed up to 4,000 and 2,000 attendees respectively, but those that are placed in tier 3 zones will have to continue behind closed doors.

Recently a statement was issued on the

Red Devils

website regarding their fans disallowance into Old Trafford saying:  

"Manchester United notes the government decision to keep Trafford in the Tier 3 category of Covid-19 restrictions."

"This means games at Old Trafford will continue to take place behind closed doors until further notice. Our plans for safely welcoming fans back to Old Trafford are well advanced and we look forward to doing so, as soon as we are given the go-ahead.”

"We will continue to work with local authorities on finalising our plans so that we can move quickly when our area comes out of Tier 3.”

"Some of our forthcoming away games in Tier 2 areas may take place with a limited number of fans in attendance. However, under current guidelines, away fans will not be permitted to attend."
