Ross County could welcome supporters back to Victoria Park for next Friday’s Premiership home match against Livingston.
The Highland region is expected to be placed into Tier One of the Scottish Government’s coronavirus restrictions, which will come into effect from Monday.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has indicated lower infection rates in the region, along with Orkney, Shetland, the Western Isles and Moray, are likely to result in a lower placing in the five-tier structure than the majority of other parts of Scotland.
A final announcement on the tier placings is expected tomorrow, which will be implemented from the start of next week.
The proposed framework has indicated areas in tiers zero and one will be allowed to partially reopen stadiums to a restricted number of supporters.
The Scottish FA and SPFL will hold talks with the Scottish government later this week to discuss the return of fans to Scottish football grounds.
That could result in the Staggies being able to host a limited crowd for next Friday’s visit of Livi, while Moray outfit Elgin City could do likewise for their League Two match against Queen’s Park next Saturday.
Caley Thistle would also be included in Tier One, with their next home match against East Fife in the Betfred Cup on November 14.
County staged one of two Scottish football test events with crowds in September, with 300 supporters attending the Staggies’ 5-0 defeat to Celtic.
Aberdeen’s home match against Kilmarnock was also played in front of the same number, while 700 fans were permitted inside Murrayfield for a Pro14 rugby match between Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors the previous month.
Professor Jason Leitch, the national clinical director, subsequently declared all three events a success.
Staggies manager Stuart Kettlewell is warmly welcoming the prospect of welcoming crowds back to Dingwall.
Kettlewell said: “We would embrace it because we just want crowds back. We say it every single week and if there is a light at the end of the tunnel then I would love to see it happen.
“We had 300 fans in a safe environment for a game and the whole thing worked extremely well.
“If we can get that and this is one of the areas it could happen then it would be brilliant for the Highlands.
“I’m an advocate of football in the Highlands, in trying to promote it and to get people on side supporting their sides and playing up here.
“Fingers crossed that it could happen for the Friday fixtures and I would embrace that.
“Hopefully our club can follow through with the whole process the way we did the first time around.”
