The football matches will see no fans in anytime soon amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Though there had been talks of the fans returning to the ground from October 1. But the plans were scrapped off after the COVID cases started to go up in the United Kingdom.

As many as 200,000 fans signed a petition urging to allow them to return to the ground to witness the live matches.

EFL had also urged the member clubs to find a way to let the supporters attend the match. The request was made as the tickets are the main source of the generation of the revenue.

Arsenal have decided to allow the members to witness the live screening of the away clash against Manchester City. The Gunners have announced that 368 people would be permitted to enter the Emirates.

The packages are rated as ‘The Invincibles Package’ at £49 per person and it goes up to ‘The Marble Package’, which includes a booth for six people and a private host at £1,074.

The cheapest deal will include pizza, two beers plus a photo opportunity with the Community Shield, that Arsenal have recently won.
