Fans will return to Premier League stadiums for the season's final two rounds of fixtures later this month, subject to the UK government's expected easing of lockdown restrictions.

Under the government's roadmap out of lockdown, crowds of up 10,000 or 25 percent of capacity will be permitted from May 17.

As a result, the Premier League has altered its fixture schedule to ensure that each of the 20 teams gets the opportunity to host at least one home match with a crowd.

No away fans will be allowed to ease operational challenges, but the English top-flight clubs are hopeful of a return to full stadiums for the start of next season.
