The Premier League is set to install a strict set of rules upon the return of fans next month, including banning singing and drinking alcohol.
It follows the Prime Minister's announcement that fans will be allowed into sporting events when the lockdown is over.
Up to 4,000 fans will be allowed into venues that are in Tier 1 locations, whereas clubs situated in Tier 2 will only be able to let 2,000 in.
Those that are in Tier 3, likely to include Liverpool and Manchester, will be prevented from allowing supporters in.
But those that are permitted to enter grounds will only be allowed under a number of unusual rules.
