The news means that supporters from each club will be able to attend the matches on 17th May at a reduced number before the government announcement expected to be announced on 10th May.
The league has already rescheduled matches last week to allow all clubs to have an opportunity to host home fans. That said, the second last matches will be played between 18th and 19th May with the final clash set for 23rd May.
