Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to bring in fresh ruling with regard to supporters in stadiums in his latest coronavirus briefing this afternoon.

The BBC report that England will allow a maximum of 4,000 fans at outdoor events in the lowest-risk areas when national lockdown in England ends on 2 December.

However they report that no crowds will be allowed at sport in the highest-risk areas under the new Covid-19 restrictions for England from 2 December.

It is important to remember that Scotland is currently under different ruling with regard to coronavirus restrictions, but the PMs announcement could pave a way for Scottish football fans to return to stadiums soon.

Fans were originally meant to be returning to stadia across Scotland on September 14, but the First Minister called a hault due to the "virus accelerating" across the country.

National clinical director Jason Leitch is hopeful some football fans will be able to go to Hampden by the Euros. 

Matches between Scotland with the Czech Republic and Croatia are set to take place in June next year and the health boss is "relatively confident" fans will be able to be in stadiums. 

He told Off The Ball: "The Euros give a number of levels of challenge, because it isn't all in Scotland.

"The present plan is to play it in 12 countries and 12 different stadia. 

"Players and fans are going to have to travel between the different countries, so there are layers of complexity there. 

"There are too many variables to know if we will have a full house at Hampden, but I am relatively confident we will have some kind of crowd by June.”
