But there will be an increase to 21,000 supporters by May 15, when the FA Cup concludes with its showpiece at Wembley Stadium.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: “Our sports stars and great performers need us to find ways to get bums back on seats safely.

“This science-led pilot programme will be the springboard in getting the buzz back of live performance. 

“We’ve supported the sports and arts with unprecedented sums, but it’s now time to make that Great British Summer of live events a reality.”

Last year’s runners up Chelsea play City in the first FA Cup semi-final on April 17.

A day later, Leicester face Southampton, and a live crowd of 4,000 are set to be in attendance.

FA CEO Mark Bullingham said: “This is an important first step towards getting fans back, with the end goal of full stadia – hopefully by the end of the Men’s Euros.”

After May 17, up to 10,000 fans or 25 per cent of a stadium’s capacity wil be allowed to attend Premier League games.
