In the meantime all shops can reopen some allowed to open 24 hours with hundreds INSIDE, Barbers, hairdressers, beauty salons etc etc directly up to peoples faces INSIDE, the list could go on and on.
However we cant have 600 fans 2m apart all safely policed OUTDOORS.

The world has gone barking mad.

Presumably all 32 fixtures will go ahead , but some will have to take place behind closed doors which means that there will be no share of gate receipts for both clubs. THis will mean that clubs participating will lose money, but the blow will be softened by prize money.

Pre-lockdown Welwyn Garden City would have been limited to 400 spectators, but I've lost track now of what edicts have been issued.

There appears to some optimism around Staffordshire moving into tier 2 on the 16th, but it will be interesting to see how clubs will vote tomorrow. I can't see clubs in tier 3 voting to re-start quickly and with ALvechurch proclaiming that they will elect to support the suspension the season then the majority in our division will be against a re-start.

The statements correct. We await league ruling. We voted today. But many clubs involved. We suspect it will be paused for two weeks to review what the outcome of the tier review and impact the new approved medicines will have to the uk.
We are also lobbing fa, dcms, league and government personally to try and accommodate a safe return for fans.
We need fans, and fans need the pitmen. But it must be safe.
We have flagged key things also.
1-why are we restricted to 600 when league above (often with smaller grounds) are allowed 50% or whatever social distancing will allow.
2- why are grants not been provided when we are been forced to close. The club has standing costs and it’s unfair on the club.
3- why have leagues above been given grants and we are to be offered loans.
4- we cannot sit back and await every club to be in tier 2 to restart. We need fans but we also need a season to be concluded ASAP. We have requested all options explored to get us all safely back ASAP.
5- currently we will only play games trophy games (so we do not forfeit our place in the competition) and friendlies where needed to keep the guys match sharp. Until we get a clear instruction from the league.

Above is from a thread on Facebook 👍 (easier to copy and paste).

The question was are we happy restarting without fans. No if, buts or caveats on the answer. Yes or no only. Ours is no. But we have flagged in our meeting the above items which needs answers. We don’t see why our club should suffer more than it has already when forced to close.

Big problem with the restart is players will move to tier 2 clubs to play and all teams in tier 3 will be decimated. That’s the big issue the league are facing. Understandably too.

We wait to see. But feel was it will be paused for a couple of weeks.

We await answers 👍

Skegness has withdrawn from the FA Vase and so Stourport will host Grimsby Borough in the next round. Grimsby obviously feel it is safe to travel, whereas Skegness do not!

Weymouth’s next home fixture will have an even more reduced attendance due to Covidiots...

A warning to all clubs. One or two people weren't happy that the behaviour of some of our fans was criticised in earlier fixtures.

London now has the highest rate of Coronavirus infections in the country. Infection rates in London have risen during the past two weeks. At 177 cases per 100,000 people, London's rate is higher than the East and West Midlands at 157. It will be interesting to see if London gets placed into Tier 3 restrictions. It also is interesting to look at the Government's package to help fund sport in the winter lockdown. Rugby Union🏉 is to get £135 million and Horse Racing will get £40 million to support closed racecourses. Meanwhile Football will receive £28 million. This Government support is mainly in the form of loans. Football clubs and pubs in Staffordshire are facing a future as cold as Pritti Patel's smile.

Fulham have stopped selling tickets for their next home match they believe they will be placed into tier 3.
The real problem for non league football
is that instead of allowing spectators to attend in some parts of the country they should either allow them in at all matches or non at all.
If we go into tier 2 next week it doesn’t mean we will be playing if any other club in the league is in tier 3.
I’ve only ventured out for the usual shopping but have seen and heard enough of shops being crowded out ,Primark for example apparently had long queues outside it’s Birmingham store at 10pm Tuesday night yet a few hundred standing outside at a footy match is not allowed.
The current situation is sheer madness.

If so, that is nonsensical. As usual a decision made with no apparent logic to it. Will be interesting to see what happens next week in London and the SE as cases are on the rise there.
Limiting clubs at our level to 300 is something, but it may not allow clubs to cover costs, especially over the lucrative festive season.

All depends whether clubs want to try it. I know we do but most clubs in our league don’t get 300 so will only lose out on drink from the clubhouse. Assume burger bars can open as it’s takeaway? And if there’s another vote what percentage counts as to whether the season should start? If 19 clubs out of 20 want to start, can the league start? What happens to the club that doesn’t? Or does it have to be a full 20.

There are other ways of raising money of course, like selling printed programmes...

It all depends on what 15% of Level 1 ground grading actually is, only reference can find is minimum of 1950 with future potential to rise to 3000 in FA ground grading info online but could be totally wrong, all clear as mud!!

Step 3 min capacity to play at that level is 2000, so 15% of that is 300.

...let's not forget another lockdown is likely at the end of January when cases spike again. Another consideration is that the fixture list will have to be re-worked. Can't see clubs wanting to limit (crows) to 300 on Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
Closing clubhouses down will also affect the viability of staging fixtures.
It's all a bit of a mess.



Does anyone know what the limit is for clubs in tier 2?
