Petition to reopen football grounds


Recommended Posts

After announcements of indoor concerts taking place from December and the prime minister actively encouraging public to visit cinemas, it appears that many fans and professional football clubs including Charlton and Shrewsbury are losing patience with the one rule for one, one rule for another approach being taken and are now speaking out on twitter using the hashtag #letfansin For any fans who are hoping for any sort of return this season and can spare a few minutes to sign and share this petition and let the powers that be that enough is enough and that if these other venues are considered safe then there’s no reason an open air stadium can not be with the correct measures in place.

Dear ****** ********,

The Government has responded to the petition you signed – “Allow football fans to attend matches at all levels”.

Government responded:

We will take the earliest opportunity to look again at getting spectators safely back into stadia but this must clearly be done carefully against the prevailing health conditions.

Football clubs form the bedrock of our communities and play a vital role in the local economy. Their importance has been clearly demonstrated throughout the pandemic with clubs at all levels providing incredible support to their area.

That is why the Government is committed to supporting sports clubs up and down the country, with many football clubs benefitting from the Government’s unprecedented financial support to businesses.

The Government is fully aware of the importance of getting spectators back into stadia for many sports, and the financial consequences of the decision not to allow this from 1 October. The evidence received from the Chief Medical Officer was very clear that at a time of rapidly rising infections, and when the Government was considering restrictions elsewhere, it was not the right time to undertake any further easements.

We will continue to work closely with a whole range of sports to understand the latest thinking that might allow spectators to return. This includes the creation of a new Sports Technology Innovation Working Group of sporting bodies and health experts to analyse new technologies which might support this. This will supplement the draft government guidance, and the SGSA supplementary guidance to their Green Guide, which has been internationally welcomed.

We are committed to getting spectators back into stadia as soon as it is safe to do so.

Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

Love how the mod keeps banning any dissenting voices from his special "why can't I go to football during a global pandemic, sign my Internet petition" thread. Pathetic little nob. 

Have members really been banned for disagreeing with this!!..

Incredible...

Waking up to smell the coffee comes to mind.

What are you on about @Red Ferret?

Would you like to clarify who has been banned etc?

Maybe explain "pathetic little nob"?

@Son of Fred Nobody has been banned, I've had a look and nobody has been banned for a while, and those that were have nothing to do with this thread, I have no idea what @Red Ferret is on about, as above we are all awaiting to see what proof they have

Am assuming the person who made those comments will come back and explain what they are on about
