Manchester United set for empty crowds as the city is placed in Tier-3

Manchester United fans will not be returning to Old Trafford anytime soon. This after the city was placed in Tier 3 meaning matches will have to continue in front of empty crowds.

According to The Metro, the three-tier system announced today saw ten EPL clubs find themselves in the third tier.

Matches have taken place behind closed doors since March when the UK first went into lockdown. There was hope that spectators will be allowed to return to live events in limited numbers from December 2.

Manchester United will not be welcoming fans into Old Trafford anytime soon

Manchester United, Manchester City, Leicester, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Wolves, West Brom, Burnley, Leeds, and Sheffield United will all continue to play without fans for the foreseeable future.

The same cannot be said for our London and Merseyside-based rivals. Both cities have been placed in Tier 2, meaning the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea can permit 2000 fans to attend their matches.

In an official club statement, the club confirmed that the plans for safely welcoming back fans to Old Trafford are well advanced. They will continue to work with local authorities on finalizing executable plans so that we can move quickly when the area comes out of Tier 3.

Fans will not be permitted to attend away fixtures either

Our trips to Tier 2 cities for away games will see spectators present. However, as per the rules, there will be no away fans permitted.

While it is not much, it does give teams in higher tiers an advantage. We take a look at how fans reacted to the news.
