Fans are unlikely to be allowed in to watch the Community Shield between Liverpool and Arsenal at Wembley later this month.

The 2020-21 curtain-raiser at the national stadium on August 29 was being considered as a pilot event to allow a limited number of supporters to attend a football match for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic.

However, after similar tests in county cricket and snooker had to be abandoned due to a rise in Covid-19 cases, the PA news agency understands that the Football Association is unlikely to press ahead with their plans.

The way things seem to be going we may not get the season started I fear.

This is outrageous. The FA don't want people there to see us smash them up

I think the season will go ahead, I just think it will be a while before fans can go. As long as idiot footballers don't decide that the laws don't apply to them as that one who plays for Celtic did.

Ha probably not, but I'm getting sick of conspiracy theories. A United fan told me that both Manchester clubs were ordered not to win the semis so that their respective fans wouldn't invade London for the final. (Given that most United fans live in London, I don't see the difference!) He'd read it on Facebook and truly believed it. Then you have idiots saying that Governments are using the virus to stop our freedoms. Really? I read your post after speaking to my sister who believes the latter. I read your post on the back of that.
