As many as 4,000 fans will be allowed to attend an outdoor sports event in the lowest-risk parts of England when the current national lockdown finishes on Dec. 2, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Monday.

The government’s new rules will give hope to soccer fans who haven’t been able to watch their teams play in person since the pandemic began, with many smaller clubs facing financial difficulties.
