REVEALED: Next Tuesday’s EFL matches will NOT be delayed by 24 hours to take advantage of new rules allowing upto 2,000 fans to attend games in Tier 2 areas
- Clubs in tier two areas will be allowed 2,000 fans at matches from December 2
- EFL bosses met to decide if matches scheduled for December 1 could be moved
- Sportsmail can reveal that the league has decided not to reschedule fixtures
The English Football League will not be moving matches scheduled for the final day of national lockdown so fans can attend a day later.
Matches that take place on Wednesday December 2 in areas designated by government as tier two in the new regional coronavirus regulations will be allowed to admit 2,000 spectators.
But an extensive programme of games is scheduled to take place on Tuesday December 1 and EFL bosses met today to decide whether to allow clubs to delay their fixtures.
Sportsmail understands the EFL has decided not to make the change.
