Sports fans will be able to return to venues from December 3 when national lockdown measures in England come to an end.

As the country prepares to revert back to a regional tiered system, dependent on the level of COVID-19 cases in each particular area, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed a maximum of 4,000 supporters will be granted access to stadia.

In areas identified as Tier 1, entry will be restricted to either 4,000 or a maximum of 50% capacity - whichever is lowest - while areas in Tier 2 will be limited to 2,000 spectators or, again, a maximum of 50% capacity.

Stadia located within Tier 3 areas, as Bolton was prior to the introduction of a national lockdown on November 5, will continue to hold fixtures behind closed doors.

Wanderers haven't been able to host spectators at the University of Bolton Stadium since February 29, when they were held to a goalless draw by Accrington Stanley in League One.
