Man City win League Cup in front of 8,000 people in UK’s biggest post-COVID football crowd

Manchester City have won the League Cup final at Wembley in front of the UK’s biggest football crowd since before the pandemic.

Eight thousand people provided genuine atmosphere as City went toe to toe with Tottenham Hotspur, the victors winning 1-0.

Each club had 2,000 fans in the stands, while a further 4,000 tickets were given to NHS staff and local residents.

Everyone had to present a negative COVID-19 test result before being allowed in, while City fans had to travel down to London in official club transport.

Last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final between Leicester and Southampton was played before a crowd of 4,000 spectators.

If Sunday’s event is deemed to have passed off successfully, there will be 21,000 fans at next month’s FA Cup final between Chelsea and Leicester.
