After December 2, the British government allows spectators to go to the safe zones to watch Premier League matches. However, Old Trafford was not among them.
According to Sky Sports, the British government divides the regions into 3 levels. Level 1 pitches can let a maximum of 4,000 people enter the field, level 2 can allow 2,000 people, and level 3 still has to play without spectators.
No football field has been ranked at level 1. In the Premier League, 10 teams in the second area are Arsenal, Brighton, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Fulham, Liverpool, Southampton, Tottenham, and West Ham. The rest, including two Manchester teams, have yet to welcome the audience back due to their area being ranked at level 3.
Man United and Man City belong to the group of teams that have not played under the direct witness of the home audience. Other football leagues, outdoor sports activities are ranked similarly by the British government. As of December 16, the city leveling will continue to be considered.
MU is hijacked by hackers
Much of MU’s top-level confidential data can be made public even though they try hard to deal with hackers. According to the Daily Mail, MU’s network is being compromised and paralyzed by hackers.
The Red Devils have invited a series of network experts to control hackers and regain control over the past week. However, the National Network Security Center determined that hackers are still taking control of MU’s data. The current situation is believed to be much worse than initially feared.
Important data at the upper echelons of MU are under public threat
MU will be forced to pay hackers if they do not want confidential data to be publicized on online platforms such as social networks. The Daily Mail confirmed it was unclear how much money the hacker wanted. However, the American football clubs were extorted for up to £ 5 million in 2019.
According to the Times, MU announced the situation to the British Information Commissioner’s Office. They could also be fined 9 million, 18 million, or as much as 2% of annual worldwide revenues if the attack is found to have compromised fan data.
In July, Guardian reported that the transfer season emails of Premier League clubs had been hacked. Only investigations from banks will help clubs not lose their money around £ 1 million.
