Leicester City will take on Chelsea in their first FA Cup finals in 52 years on 15th May, and the finals have been selected for testing as the UK prepares to welcome supporters in Stadium around the country.
With the grounds around the country opening a couple of days later, FA Cup finals will be used as a tentative event for the protective return of fans in the stadiums.
A total of 22,000 spectators will be allowed inside the stadium, with more than 6,000 tickets to be received to Chelsea supporters and Leicester City supporters – with 12,500 tickets to be split among the clubs. A further 9,500 tickets to be distributed among residents in the Brent area of London, key workers, stadium guests, and FA stakeholders.
This will be the third & final test to take place at England’s national stadium, with Government’s roadmap out of the current unprecedented situation to be followed.
Face coverings are mandatory while in the stadium, as spectators observe social distancing – with 0.9m between spectators. No attendees below sixteen will be allowed inside stadium premises. All attendees shall present a text or a mail of negative lateral flow test no more than two days before kick-off.
All the spectators will be able to watch their beloved club before the conclusion of the current campaign – although Governments’ rules & regulations must be followed to ensure the health & safety of everyone and the continuity of walking the Government’s road back out of pandemic. Stay safe!
