Boris Johnson to make major announcement that will affect Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham fans


Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham fans have been handed a major boost ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Hopes that the likes of the Emirates Stadium, Stamford Bridge and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium can be full to capacity have been given the green light by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Johnson, alongside chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty and chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance, outlined the latest proposals at a press conference on Monday.

As social distancing is set to end from July 19, it means that full stadiums in England will be permitted for the start of the football season next month.

However, it is important to note that fans will be able to attend if required tests are met and will also be able to stand, cheer and sing without breaching any regulations.

With that said, a decision on whether or not to go ahead with all the proposals will be made on July 12 following a review of the latest available data.

Johnson said: “We’ll move away from legal restrictions and allow people to make their own informed decisions about how to manage the virus.
