    Ian Wright and Roy Keane call for Government to start allowing fans back to top-level football 

    ‘It’s frustrating and bizarre… why can’t we get fans back in NOW?’: Roy Keane and Ian Wright blast the Government for stopping the return of supporters after England beat Wales at empty Wembley

    • England beat Wales in front of an empty Wembley Stadium on Thursday night
    • The Government is continuing to ban fans from attending sporting matches
    • Ian Wright can’t understand why the public can go to cinemas and not to games
    • Roy Keane believed 10,000 people could have attended Thursday’s fixture 

    Ian Wright and Roy Keane vented their frustration at the Government for not allowing football supporters back into grounds and predict that lower league clubs will go bust. 

    England played their first home game since the coronavirus hiatus in front of an empty Wembley Stadium against Wales, with the majority of football teams in the country still not allowed to accept fans due to the global pandemic.

    And ITV pundit Wright could not believe how members of the public can visit the Royal Albert Hall or even watch a football match in an enclosed cinema but not attend a match in an open-air stadium.

    Ian Wright also vented his frustration after over six months without fans in football grounds

    England beat Wales 3-0 in front of an empty 90,000-seater Wembley Stadium on Thursday

    It has been announced recently that 4,700 spectators can attend London’s O2 Arena for a concert in December and a crowd of 57 per cent capacity will be allowed at the Royal Albert Hall for events around Christmas. 

    The former Arsenal and England striker told ITV on Thursday: ‘Yeah I’m very frustrated when you see the size of Wembley and how they can social distance in it. 

    ‘People will be worried about the concourses but when you look the measures they are doing (to get us in the ground) – and you’ll have to up that – I can’t understand how people can’t be here. 

    ‘When you look at the Albert Hall and cinemas and seeing how they close the curtains (in cinemas when people watch games in there) – why can’t we get fans back in now? Look at the lower league teams, they are suffering.’ 

    Fellow ITV pundit Keane predicted that smaller professional clubs will suffer due to the continuation of behind closed doors matches and even thought that 10,000 fans could have attended the England match on Thursday evening.

    The Irishman added: ‘Clubs will go bust, if you look at the situation tonight  – you can’t tell me there can’t be 10,000 people in there tonight. 

    ‘It’s frustrating and bizarre at the moment.’

    The Government had planned to welcome fans back into sporting events for the start of October due to the success of several test events in August and September. 

    However, a spike in cases leading to new lockdown regulations such as the ‘Rule of Six’ and the closure of pubs at 10pm meant plans to return fans to stadia had to be delayed.  

    The Premier League and the EFL have urged the Government to reconsider fans staying away

    In recent days, a petition urging the Government to reconsider allowing football fans back inside stadiums passed the 100,000 signatory mark required for a parliamentary debate.

    The ‘Allow football fans to attend matches at all levels’ motion received backing from the EFL and a large number of clubs on social media.

    Furthermore, an open letter from the Premier League urged for more consistency from the Government with crowds being kept away from elite-level football. 

    The last Premier League match to accept fans into grounds was Leicester City’s win over Aston Villa on March 9.
