WE HAVE FEARS DOWN THE PAN
Restrictions could turn fans away
Stuart Fuller Lewes FC Chairman

WHILST this weekend sees the end of Project Restart for the 2019-20 Premier League campaign, the majority of Non-League clubs are focused fully on preparations for the 2020-21 season which has been pencilled in to start in September.

The good news is that spectators are likely to be able to watch games when the FA Cup kicks the season off in the opening exchanges. I use the word ‘likely’ because at this stage we have no idea what requirements will need to be put in place to transform our grounds into compliant locations with regard to social distancing, capacities and how players and officials have to adapt.

It is ‘likely’ that the majority of clubs will have to make changes to their infrastructure to ensure safety. That will almost certainly come at a cost which will have to be borne by clubs who, in many instances, will see reduced match day revenues.
