The government is set to apply the breaks on the timeline for fans returning to sport next month, with as little as 1,000 spectators allowed back to stadiums instead of the initial plans for up to 30 per cent of a venue.  

Provisional guidelines were in place for restrictions to be lifted at elite sporting events from October 1, allowing up to 30 per cent of supporters back to watch live sport.

However, according to The Times, the number permitted now is set to be heavily diluted to around 1,000 - 2,500.

Clubs are set to allow just 1,000 fans back into stadiums next month rather than 30 per cent
