Although the UK's voice for returning to the stadium has been unabated, under the rebound of the epidemic, Prime Minister Boris Johnson postponed the plan for fans to re-enter the game, which was originally scheduled to start on October 1, and then Premier League officials also issued a statement saying that Disappointed by this decision.
Why does the Premier League look forward to fans re-entering the stadium so much? In addition to the irreplaceable atmosphere creation, the most fundamental reason is one word, money. According to the "Telegraph", if there is no way to allow fans to enter the stadium until the end of this season, the Premier League and Premier League clubs will face a total loss of more than 1 billion pounds, of which the Premier League is expected to lose 916.6 million.
Among these clubs, Manchester United has suffered the most. The club will face a loss of 133.9 million pounds in single-season match-day income. Arsenal will not be less affected than Manchester United. Although the Gunners’ business income is much lower than Manchester United, they have a match-day income of 122.7 million pounds. It still accounts for a large proportion-according to the accounts of the 2018-19 season, Arsenal's matchday income accounted for almost 1/4 of all income.
