How many fans are allowed to make it to the EFL play-off round?

EFL has announced that the play-off will be held from Monday, May 17 – the day the government allows fans to return to the stadium. according to the current route.

That means ALL play-off matches will have fans in attendance once things settle down.

The roadmap states: “The government will also allow some of the larger sporting performances and events in indoor venues with a capacity of 1,000 people or semi-enclosed (whichever is lower) and in outdoor venues with capacity of 4,000 people or semi-enclosed some less).

In locations with the largest outdoor seating where crowds can be spread, up to 10,000 people will be able to attend (or a quarter, whichever is lower).

This means that a play-off final at Wembley will be played in front of 10,000 fans unless otherwise stated.

However, it has not been confirmed whether the stadiums of participating EFL teams will qualify as a larger or smaller outdoor venue.
