Supporters will be able to attend Premier League matches for the final two weeks of the season - but away fans will not be permitted.

Clubs were informed on Thursday that league fixtures will be moved to enable each top-flight side to host one home match before the 2020/21 campaign draws to a close.

Government restrictions allow for a limited number of fans to attend sporting events from May 17.

Originally that meant only fixtures taking place on the final day of the season would have fallen beyond the deadline, but league chiefs are now making amendments to the calendar so the penultimate round of matches will also be played in front of a crowd.

As per The Mail's report, Matchweek 36 will be moved from its scheduled date of May 11/12 to May 15/16 - the last round of games to go ahead behind closed doors.

Those clubs playing at home in Matchweek 37 can then invite supporters back into their grounds on the new midweek dates of May 18/19, ahead of the season's culmination on May 23, which will also have fans present.

Sadly away fans will not be allowed to travel to matches after some clubs raised health and safety concerns with regards to coronavirus.

A limit on the number of supporters will be capped at 10,000 per stadium, unless a quarter of their capacity is lower than that figure, as in line with Government quotas and subject to their approval of the propositions next month.

The attendance of fans could play a big part in how the rest of the season pans out, particularly with some big games to come in the top four race.

Chelsea host Leicester in their penultimate fixture, before the Foxes welcome Tottenham on the final day.

Fulham could also be handed a big advantage if they can stay in contention to beat the drop, as Newcastle head to Craven Cottage for a potential relegation decider.

The FA Cup final will also miss out on the presence of supporters as it falls on May 15, with any league fixtures disrupted by the event moved to the midweek prior.
