FOURTEEN stunning photos of Sheffield fans on Wednesday at Hillsborough as we prepare for a return to the pitch UK News

But, there is light at the end of the tunnel, with supporters allowed to return to the stadiums from the start of next season, which begins on August 7, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson claimed on Monday and hailed by the EFL.

A statement from EFL chief executive Trevor Birch said the English Football League welcomed the government’s decision and underlined how eager it was to bring people back to the stadiums.

Shortly after Boris Johnson’s announcement, Birch said: “The EFL welcomes today’s positive announcement by the Prime Minister that capacity restrictions should be lifted later this month , which will finally allow us to move forward with our plans to see a full return of fans to EFL stadiums from the start of the new EFL season in just four weeks. “

This means Sheffield Wednesday fans should be eager to tick off new pitches on the Football League’s 92 stadium list and, of course, return home.

The Owls’ last home game in front of fans was a 3-1 loss to opponents on last season’s final matchday, Derby County, on February 19, 2020.

Thousands of supporters braved the windy conditions caused by Storm Dennis to cheer on their team.

Here are some pictures of this day and other matches of the 2019-2020 season.
