Coronavirus tiers: Which tier is your football club in?

Coronavirus tiers: Which tier is your football club in?

Luton Town
Luton welcomed fans earlier this month, but are back behind closed doors

Several football clubs must close their doors again from Saturday after Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed changes to the coronavirus tier system.

A limited number of supporters returned to some grounds after the national lockdown ended on 2 December.

However, Hancock announced on Thursday that Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Peterborough, the whole of Hertfordshire, most of Surrey and parts of Sussex and Hampshire would move from tier two to tier three.

In tier one, a maximum of 4,000 fans are allowed at outdoor events – though no clubs are currently there.

Up to 2,000 supporters will be allowed in tier two areas but none in tier three.

That leaves Liverpool, Everton, Southampton and Brighton as the only clubs allowed fans inside stadiums for top-flight fixtures.

Championship clubs Luton, Reading and Wycombe are no longer allowed spectators, but Bristol City can welcome fans after moving into tier two from three.
