Premier League season will resume on June 17 without fans after a three-month stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following are the people allowed inside stadiums as well as the protocols and requirements for clubs to host matches:
- All the remaining games will be played without fans.
- A maximum of 300 people -- including broadcast staff, written media, commentators, doping officials and scouts -- will be allowed inside stadiums on matchdays.
- Stadiums will be split into red, amber and green zones with each team's red zone pass holders to include 20 players, 12 coaching and medical staff and a further five "essential staff".
- The amber zone will include non-essential staff, such as analysts, while all others will be placed in the green zone.
- Players will undergo COVID-19 tests at their club's training ground before travelling to stadiums for matches.
- Teams will take the field separately, not side-by-side, and games will feature drinks breaks midway through each half.
- Medical staff will wear protective equipment when treating players.
- Substitutes and managers on the bench will not be required to wear masks and players do not have to wear them when entering the stadium or dressing room.
- The technical area for managers will be reconfigured to allow for greater social distancing, as will team dugouts.
- Corner flags, goalposts, substitution boards and match balls will be thoroughly disinfected before games.
- Clubs will be encouraged to travel by plane and avoid staying in hotels before games.
- Clubs are expected to use at least three coaches for matchday travel with drivers who have already undergone novel coronavirus tests.
