West Ham Women’s home fixture against Arsenal on 12 September has been selected as a pilot event to test the return of spectators to elite sporting fixtures.

The test event at Dagenham & Redbridge FC has been scheduled in line with Government and local authority guidance, with only season ticket holders permitted to attend, up to a maximum of 1,000.

Government guidance on how these pilot events should run has been developed with UK Sport and in close consultation with the Deputy Chief Medical Officers of England, Public Health England, the Sports Grounds Safety Authority, Police and medical representatives across Olympic, Paralympic and professional sports governing bodies.

West Ham United women’s managing director Jack Sullivan told whufc.com: “It is a real privilege that this fixture has been selected as one of the pilot events for supporters to return to live football matches in the UK.”
