In stadiums with a capacity of more than 40,000 seats, the presence of up to 10,000 fans will be allowed. Up to a quarter of capacity will be allowed in smaller sports facilities.
The government has said it will start research on how to organize sporting events without social distance, using equipment such as testing.
In December, up to 2,000 people were allowed to attend stadiums in England, but later the public was barred from entering again due to the spread of a new strain of coronavirus.
