''From 1 August, we will restart indoor performance to a live audience, subject to the success of pilots, and we will also pilot larger gatherings in venues like sports stadiums with a view to a wider reopening in the autumn.
''From October, we intend to bring back audiences in stadia. Again, these changes must be done in a Covid-secure way, subject to the successful outcome of pilots,'' Johnson explained according to Daily Mail.
With this latest information, football fans in England can be rest assured that they would be allowed to watch the Premier League games from next season.
