Getting the crowds back


Recommended Posts

I’ve sent a tweet to Stuart and Tam:

 

A request for Jason Leitch to propose to the Sports Minister the following: Allow a return to football spectating for followers of non-league and lowest SPFL clubs.

They have small attendances and space to maintain whatever social distancing is required.

Easy to manage if attendance restricted to season tickets, and would let clubs increase fanbase by selling seasons to new supporters who are desperate to watch football on a Saturday.

Visiting fans to produce current seasons to gain entry.

Why should smaller clubs wait on the big boys to get their games on when we could be watching our clubs long beforehand.

Anyone with a say in running their clubs should be getting them to have the leagues lobby the government.

Can understand your desire to get football back on, how do you cater for the neutral, visiting, football fan in general ? Not everyone can afford a season ticket or some just do what they can afford on a weekly basis. Think maybe there could be a 'Fans Pass' (costing £10+) and then you have to apply to the clubs involved to get a match ticket, only an idea.

Not a bad idea, but it would have to be subject to late entry if limit hadn’t been reached.

Corona virus testing isn’t being carried out in tennis courts, golf courses or the about to be newly opened children’s playgrounds. Why should it be a problem for non league?

Close bodily contact doesn't occur in playing tennis or golf.

I can't see the big problem with letting crowds in at the lower leagues/non leagues. By the time football gets up and running all going well the virus will be well down. Majority of grounds would allow social distancing

Try telling that to Novak Djikovic.....

That idiot and his pals thought they were immune so they were quite happy to stand together shaking hands. They'll no do that again.

Your probably right, thou his comments last night about refusing a vaccine even if one was available clearly show he's been cracked on the head once to often with a 120mph tennis baw 🤣

Starting date October if not earlier.

Thats what i hear. If we continue to make progress training will start in August with the season starting early October or sooner. Obviously that will change if we have another outbreak.

They played basketball together

Djokovic organized tennis tournaments in Serbia and Croatia, it appears that's where they got it due to lack of 'social distancing'.

Have you not seen the footage of them partying? This might be a more likely place for transmission...

I know that but they played basketball together before the tournament and as Gordon is saying there they were doing the conga in da club. The likelihood is that they caught it then.

Think the UK is doing all it can to get back to some sort of reality by September- economy now more important than saving lives it appears. Guessing a crowd of around 500 at non league could be spaced out fairly well around the ground. 

I'll have some of that.....
