Chelsea and Brighton are scheduled to play in a pre-season friendly this Saturday, which will see supporters attend the match.

Approximately 2,500 fans will be in attendance at the AMEX stadium as part of the UK government’s pilot scheme.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport are assessing events where spectators can be admitted, however, adhering to social distancing measures is fundamental.

Brighton have confirmed that their match against the blues will go ahead and be part of this procedure of allowing spectators inside the ground.

A statement released by the club stated: “The match is all-ticket and in the unlikely event the game does not sell out, there will be no ticket sales on the day.

“The government approved the event on Wednesday afternoon, and the game is the stadium’s first to include fans since lockdown commenced in March.”

The Last Premier League fixture with fans in attendance was more than five months ago when Leicester City beat Aston Villa 4-0 at the King Power Stadium on March 9.

Chelsea’s Premier League campaign begins at the AMEX as Frank Lampard enters his second season as Chelsea boss.

Hopefully it won’t be too long until fans are allowed back into stadiums experiencing the enjoyment of football live.
