Premier League chief Richard Masters has said that he hopes the crowds are allowed back in before the trophy is lifted.
“No-one can say but we have not lost hope we might see a few back this season, depending what happens with the numbers,” Masters said.
“Hopefully the season finishes as planned on 23 May and wherever the trophy presentation might be, there might be some supporters in the ground as well.
“It depends what happens with the numbers but next season I hope it opens up quickly, so we can get fans back in stadiums and get back to the real Premier League.”
Masters also spoke about the financially tight situation at PL and the cramped schedule.
According to Masters, the Premier League can avoid settling for reduced broadcast income, which is the fate that has affected some major leagues.
He said, quoted by the BBC, that the European picture was “not necessarily relevant” to how deals may pan out in the United Kingdom.
Masters stressed he would not “accept things have plateaued and we are looking at a downward curve”.
He added: “We have done some media rights deals during the pandemic and are ahead of our current position in the markets where we have been selling.”
