The Premier League has urged the British government to stay committed to its plans for a controlled return of fans into stadiums from Oct. 1.

The government last week restricted pilot events to 1,000 spectators after a spike in Covid-19 cases, and said it would review the date for when fans could enter stadiums.

The Premier League said in a statement Thursday that clubs remain committed to ensuring stadiums will be a safe environment for supporters.

The English top-flight, which has had no fans at stadiums since last season resumed in June, had written to the government, saying clubs face losses of up to 700m pounds ($906.78m) if matches continue to be held behind closed doors.
