Premier League clubs will only be able to admit home fans for the final two rounds of the season after plans to allow away supporters were scrapped.

The Premier League are set to confirm the plan to move the final two gameweeks of the season beyond May 17, the date after which supporters are allowed back into grounds, meaning each side will have one home fixture in front of their fans.

Clubs will be able to admit up to 10,000 supporters or 25 per cent of their capacity, whichever number is lower.

There had been a push from clubs for the government to allow a small portion of that 10,000 to be away fans, but logistical meetings with local safety advisory groups have seen the brakes put on those plans for this season.

Midweek games currently scheduled for May 11/12 will be moved to the weekend of May 15, while the games originally meant to take place that weekend will now be played across May 18/19, taking them beyond the next stage of the government's roadmap out of lockdown.
