Clubs have told the Premier League that they are ready to welcome back fans before the end of the season if they are allowed.

A number of top-flight outfits hosted limited numbers earlier this season and both Manchester clubs were among those who had plans in place to open their doors.

And, after chief executive Richard Masters said he had ‘not lost hope’ of seeing a return of supporters this campaign, some have already indicated their willingness to take part in pilot events should they get the green light.

Earlier this week it emerged that the Carabao and FA Cup finals were being lined up for test events for Wembley ahead of this summer’s European Championship.

Speaking at Thursday’s Financial Times’ Business of Football summit, Masters said: ‘We are getting used to watching live football on television without fans in the stadiums and I don’t want to get used to it for much longer. 

‘Hopefully we will see an end to that and a return of supporters as soon as possible.

‘I am confident (fans will return next season). We haven’t lost hope we might see a few back this season.’
