The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) say capacity limits and ticketing processes will vary based on individual venues and events, with further pilots to be announced in due course.

Brighton say a total of 2,500 tickets will be made available to season-ticket holders and members for Saturday’s match.

Chief executive Paul Barber said the fixture was “the start of a progression of bringing larger crowds back to stadiums over what we hope will be a relatively short period of time, as confidence increases”.
