The Wider Image: A year without fans lays bare soccer's true soul
An academy player runs past Oakwell Stadium whilst the Barnsley and Bournemouth teams warm up inside, on the day of a Championship football match between Barnsley and AFC Bournemouth in Oakwell, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Barnsley, Britain, December 4, 2020. Normally, at this point there would be thousands of people milling about but during lockdown the streets around stadiums are deserted. REUTERS/Carl Recine SEARCH "RECINE FANS" FOR THIS STORY.
