Football continues despite the lack of fans, but plans are being made to gradually integrate and bring supporters back into stadiums over the winter months. English Football League clubs have already made plans to screen matches in their stadiums.

According to the Telegraph, the Gunners are following suit in their bid to welcome fans back to the stadium. As they cannot admit fans for home matches, away games will be screened for club members to attend.

The first of those matches will be on matchday five of the Premier League, when Mikel Arteta takes his side to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City on Saturday, October 17. The service will be available to supporters for all next Saturday’s away fixtures. It will be limited to 368 fans.

These tickets will be priced at £49 per person (£29 for children) and will be classed as the ‘Invincibles Package’. This will include food (pizza) and drinks to enjoy during the match on the big screen, while photo opportunities with none other than the Community Shield will be available.

If supporters want to go the whole nine yards, they can get a ‘marble package’ for £169 each. It will include a special ‘fine dining’ three-course meal, Q&As with club legends, prize draws, and discounts on retail and gifts. Oh, and you can have your picture taken with the FA Cup instead.
