England's new Covid-19 tiers – where does your team fit?

England’s regional tiers have been announced, for when the current national lockdown ends on 2 December.

It means some football clubs can welcome limited numbers of spectators back into their grounds.

Arsenal could be the first Premier League club to have home fans at Emirates Stadium for their Europa League tie with Rapid Vienna on 3 December.

The first Premier League fixtures to welcome fans could be Brighton v Southampton, Chelsea v Leeds, Liverpool v Wolves, Tottenham v Arsenal and West Ham v Manchester United over the weekend of 5 and 6 December.

Six English Football League matches could see the return of fans on 2 December with Luton, Wycombe, Charlton, Shrewsbury, Cambridge and Carlisle all placed in tier two.

In tier one, a maximum of 4,000 fans will be allowed at outdoor events – although no clubs currently fall into tier one.

Up to 2,000 people will be allowed in tier two areas but none in tier three.

Organised grassroots sport will be able to resume, and gyms and leisure centres can reopen across all tiers.

Tiers will be reviewed every two weeks.

So, where does your club fit and when can fans return?
