Football clubs up and down the country received a stark warning on Tuesday that games could be played without fans for up to six months. A staged reintroduction of supporters has been postponed by the UK Government following new Covid-19 restrictions. Burnley will play their first hoe league game of the season behind closed doors this weekend.

Even in the Premier League, behind closed door games will have a sizeable impact on finances. Consulting the latest accounts posted clubs (2018/19), the 20 top-flight teams could lose out on up to £700million on matchday income if fans are not back in the stadium this season.
