That's only in England. So I'd say zero fans for us in Wales. Hardly any point bringing fans back for the odd match in May. Let's keep the vaccine rates up and then revise for start of next season.

This is probably just a figure thrown in to the ring to encompass the Euro matches in June/July. Takes the wind out of the sails of the FA who will soon be required to submit plans for attendance. 25% is one of the suggested options. Today's announcement surely means the FA cannot submit plans for 25% (22,000) fans.

No dates for the semi-finals on the EFL website - https://www.efl.com/clubs-and-competitions/key-dates/

But the finals are scheduled for the weekend of 29-31 May and last league match is 8th May so they could hold the semis on 18/19th and 22/23 with the final a week later all with fans i attendance (in England). Although they usually have the semis earlier with a bigger gap to the final.

As I recall, the time lag between semi finals and final seemed to be determined by the slow process of releasing tickets in blocks to each club. If tickets are limited to 5,000 for each club, surely it can't be 'open house' and the sales would need to be put in the hands of clubs to allocate as they see fit.
