Attendance from October/Fans Return (Merged)


Recommended Posts

Would definitely go, voted as non STH as had not bought one, but would have bought it by the start of the season if things had been "normal".  I am pretty confident I could negotiate my way to ground and around it, probably safer than going to Tesco the pub etc. I am mid 60s, not the thinnest or fittest chap in the world, but I would love to go.  Only trouble is I will be on holiday in Turkey for the SW game.  I also totally appreciate that many people would not fancy going for reasons given.

I would guess it’s more about the countries trajectory. Luckily, nobody can get a test so numbers of positive cases should remain low...

On a more serious note, I think Germany got 10,000 at a game yesterday (the one where a player threatened the crowd) and Ligue 1 has been running at 5,000 with a greater number of cases than us (similar trajectory). I’d guess that’s what they’re aiming for.

Holland also had crowds, a game I saw on tv yesterday had a quarter allowed to watch, 6k in a 24k capacity stadium. I can’t remember the home team, but they were playing PSV.

Most of the country could be classed as key workers according to the government documentation on it. 

This is true. The company I work for are NHS suppliers and support and we are classed as key workers, we even have paper work and passes stating this.

I would prefer if anyone in the NHS rather than their enormous external supply chain had first refusal.

As a key worker (I speak for myself not others.. but just for context) I think I'd rather have the elderly, disabled and people made unemployed by COVID prioritised. A lot of them have had all their social activities removed by the lock down and loneliness and depression etc can be a massive killer. Getting those people into the outdoors, around other people (safely distanced) and into an activity they can enjoy themselves in (well its city) would be my preference.  Maybe I've been endangered more by having to work during this period, but losing my job and having no social contact would be worse for me. So I'd like those vulnerable folks prioritised first over myself.

Well said Prinny.

Why if you are a key worker who had to go work every day as normal all over the covid time it shouldn't matter what that job was you where still risking your life, 

I work in a supermarket distribution center that makes me a key worker, where I work covid killed one and hospitalised many some who are still not well enough to work, no one clapping us for keeping everyone from going hungry, 

If city did key worker then all key worker should be treated the same

I'm not NHS winsaw so wasn't trying to get to the front of the queue, the opposite in fact.

That said, I do take your point. The likes of yourselves are often forgotten. 

Thank you BTW.

Hang on a second, loads of people have worked throughout this key worker or not. 

I personally think the key worker bit can be taken out of context.

Are you more important than myself even though I’ve worked through all of this too?

EFL clubs allowed up to 1,000 fans for pilot event matches this weekend

Last Updated: 15/09/20 2:30pm

 

The request from EFL clubs for pilot events was granted by the UK government on TuesdayThe request from EFL clubs for pilot events was granted by the UK government on Tuesday

EFL clubs have been given the go-ahead to run pilot events this weekend with up to 1,000 spectators allowed to attend matches.

An EFL spokesman said: "The EFL remains in discussions with the government about the pilot programme which may include a limited number of further pilot matches during September with capacity limited to 1,000.

"The league is clear in its view that social distancing can be applied safely in football stadia and that having crowds at matches is an absolutely essential part of helping to protect club finances, which remain under extreme pressure. Therefore, the successful delivery of further pilots w be an important step towards getting larger number of fans into grounds safely.

No thank you. I would love to watch live football again soon, I really would, however now is not the time, in my opinion. Covid cases in the UK are on the rise. France started to let fans in to watch games since July 11th, and look how that situation has unfolded. (Not saying the increase in cases there is purely down to allowing fans in to sporting events though) We are basically allowing fans to attend games at the same time France did in terms of the number of active Covid cases, and this could well result in a sudden surge in cases and a compete backfire.

Just my own opinion though, of course.

Yes! Mainly cos I’m having a baby before the end of November and I’d like to watch some football in person before I can’t go for a bit! :sign09:

Not sure what happened re allocation of tickets for the Brighton Chelsea experiment but my guess would be that for any test event the 1000 tickets will be allocated to those living within a 2/3 mile radius of Ashton Gate thus reducing the use of public transport. Living 70 miles away I expect to be at the back of the queue.

BREAKING:

The EFL will stage pilots with up to 1,000 fans at matches this weekend, following approval from the government.

EFL clubs were asked to put in requests by Today in order for their plans to be signed off in time.

As much as I want to get back to watching football, it's pure madness IMO that this is announced the same week as we're told too many people are socialising and strict rules about meeting families are brought in.

We’ve just had restrictions imposed and we’re thinking of letting crowds watch football again - it seems crazy imo. 
 

As for the idea of prioritising the elderly and those shielding, it doesn’t seem sensible given their vulnerability!

Nice idea, but expect Bristol Sport to refund STH and sell tickets at double the POTD prices as part of a one off match day experience package.
