17th May 2021

LEICESTER and Chelsea fans are enjoying a big day out at the football once again as Wembley opened its doors for the FA Cup final.

Some 21,000 fans are attending Saturday's clash between the Premier League clubs in the capital.


It is the biggest crowd welcomed into a live event since the coronavirus pandemic led to multiple lockdowns and games being played behind closed doors.

Those trekking up Wembley Way were asked to a Covid test in the days prior to the game before a lateral flow test this morning.

Several test events have been held across the UK in recent weeks including the 8,000-strong crowd at the Carabao Cup final and the snooker fans entering the Crucible for the World Championship.

And from May 17, the Government is giving the green light to crowds nationwide of up to 10,000 – or 25 per cent of a venue's capacity.
