There's disappointment for the region's non league sides still in the Emirates FA Cup, with no supporters allowed for their First Round ties.
That's despite clubs below National League level being able to admit fans in the qualifying rounds.
The announcement came ahead of the draw for the First Round proper being made on Monday night (October 26)
A statement on the FA's official website read:
"There are 40 ties at this stage of the competition and due to COVID-19 restrictions, all ties in the first round proper will be played behind closed doors."
Hertfordshire club Bishop's Stortford was the last to confirm their place in the draw.
Around four hundred watched the Blues win their 4th Qualifying Round tie at home to St Albans City 2-0. They'll visit Brackley Town from Vanarama National League North in Round One.
Maldon & Tiptree, who reached the second round of last season's competition, were also backed by fans in their 4th Qualifying Round win over Haringey Borough.
But they'll have no spectators for their high-profile home draw against SkyBet League Two side Morecambe, with First Team manager Wayne Brown expressing his disappointment on the club's official website.
There's League Two opposition for the region's other non league club who are through, King's Lynn Town.
The National League new-boys will visit Port Vale. That's after receiving a bye with Notts County withdrawing from their Fourth Qualifying Round tie because of an outbreak of Coronavirus
