We will be taking a look at every attendance from the Premier League, EFL, FA Trophy, FA Vase and Non League from the weekend.
Of the matches that went ahead, supporters throughout the country were still able to enter through the turnstiles to watch their sides all in action.
From the 15th of December, fans will need to show proof of double vaccination or a negative lateral flow test result in order to attend matches of over 10,000 with the rules part of government’s ‘plan B’ to combat the Omicron variant.
Fans who fail to provide proof of double vaccination or proof of a negative lateral flow test will not be allowed access to the stadium.

Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol: “Premier League clubs have been working very hard behind the scenes to prepare themselves for the possibility of the so-called vaccine passport being introduced.
“Logistically it is going to be difficult; you’re going to need more stewards to check that everyone has a vaccination certificate, you’re going to need to check that those who don’t do have a negative lateral flow test.
“It’s going to be more complicated but a lot of work has already been done – Premier League clubs have prepared for this.
“The advice has always been that if you’ve been going to Premier League matches this season, you should have proof of vaccination or a negative test in the previous 48 hours.
“The difference is from next Wednesday, if you’re going to a Premier League or Championship game – games where there is going to be more than 10,000 people, you have to have proof of your certificate or a negative test – otherwise you won’t be getting into the game.”
Could games go behind closed doors again?
There are currently no plans in place to reduce crowd sizes and the hope is that the new measures will prevent the need for stricter regulations – especially given the financial implications on clubs.
“That is something that clubs definitely do not want to happen,” added Solhekol.
“Last time that football closed down it ended up costing the clubs in England something like £2bn.”
Malcolm Clarke, chair of the FSA, said: “From the earliest days of the pandemic we have always said that supporters should follow the expert advice of medical professionals and scientists.
“If those experts feel that public health is best-served by the introduction of vaccine passports or lateral flow tests for all large outdoor events, then we accept that requirement.
“We’d encourage clubs to work with local fan groups to ensure that any new procedures run smoothly and those with genuine medical exemptions are supported.”
