Crawley want to stage a test event with fans present next month.

They are eyeing their Carabao Cup first-round tie against Millwall on September 5 or the League Two opener versus Scunthorpe two weeks later.

All fans would have to wear face coverings while attending matches unless they can prove they qualify for exemption.

Reds have been working hard to ensure all protocols and guidelines are met and say the aim is to allow “a percentage of fans to consistently and safely return to The People's Pension Stadium from the start of October”.

They believe they could currently operate safely at 20% of the stadium’s 6,000 capacity.



A statement read: “The uptake on season tickets for the coming season has been fantastic.

“All season ticket holders will be receiving a separate communication from the club in regards to arrangements that we are putting in place to enable them to safely return to watching live football at The People’s Pension Stadium in their preferred area of the stadium.”
