How many fans will be allowed to attend the EFL play-off finals?

Should the roadmap be delivered as proposed, sports stadiums will be filled with ten thousand fans or 25 per cent of total capacity (whichever is the smaller).

As Wembley Stadium has a total capacity of 90,000, ten thousand supporters can be expected at each EFL play-off final.
