Currently, fans won’t be allowed inside stadiums to watch the fixtures with the precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus continuing from last season.
But with the situation seemingly improving – albeit slowly – there is hope that fans can return this year.
In fact, supporters may be allowed back into stadiums by October, according to Boris Johnson, who has said: “From October we intend to bring back audiences in stadiums. in a COVID secure way subject to the successful outcome of pilots.”
That would mean the earliest fans will get the chance to see a Chelsea game in-person would be October 3 when the Blues welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge.
The caveat is that, even if the proposed plan does go ahead, the number of fans allowed into the stadium is likely to be drastically reduced.
Nevertheless, it would be a huge boost for Chelsea and their rivals to get some sort of support back in the stands sooner rather than later.
