If the government go back to tiers in March/April and allow clubs to have 2,000 or 4,000 fans watching games. It won’t be too bad for teams like Widnes with all seater stadiums to do that, but how will smaller teams with only one stand and mostly open terracing , manage to do it?

I suppose for some clubs they may only get 800 or so anyway and in the last brief period when fans were allowed you could only have local fans in anyway, so at Anfield or Goodison it was people from the Liverpool City Region, I presume this would be the same at least initially.

So for arguments sake the 800 or so Batley diehards would be able to be spread around their ground and they wouldn't have the extra, for example, 400 or whatever Widnes fans to deal with.

No chance of fans for a long long time, it was a huge mistake last time to let them in. This government learns from it's mistakes and will not repeat the fiasco. No where near certain that the season will start on time if at all.

I think you could easily have 2000 home  fans in our stadium spread out. By April there will be a lot more people who have had the vaccination, and hopefully by April/May the temperatures will be getting warmer, which also helps, as was proved last summer with the low figures of people getting Covid . So I think a combination of both those things, will help get crowds in watching the matches.

<p style="text-align: left;">I personally think having 2,000 fans sat spaced out in a 13,500 capacity stadium, with fresh outside air is one of the safest things you can do. Certainly safer than working indoors with a number of people close to you. As long as entry and exit is properly managed to maintain distance.</p>

Do you not understand yet ? The vaccination does not stop you from from spreading the virus. No wonder we cannot get control of this godforsaken situation.

Isn’t it the case that we don’t know whether the vaccine stops you from spreading the virus rather than it definitely doesn’t stop you?

I understand that, it is a separate point to whether you can spread the virus after being vaccinated though. Which is still unknown.

I had my first covid jab last night but  I would not consider attending a game until at least 3 weeks after I have my second jab. So that will be mid May at the earliest & that is if supplies hold up as currently expected & the next jab is received in 12 weeks time as the current expected time period. I would however purchase a season ticket to support the club when on sale.

Yes, the distinction I am making is that they don’t know one way or the other. The above statement doesn’t disprove that.

By April/May a lot more people will have had their vaccinations, except young people, who don’t usually get it as bad, so there will be a lot less chance of spreading it to someone. The vaccines supposed to protect 80-90% of people, unless were being lied to, in which case we’re wasting our time getting them. Also as I said ,  last summer when the weather got warmer, the number of infectious and deaths fell dramatically. And the scientists recommendations is people sit or stand 2 metres apart, and in a stadium that holds 13,500, we could easily do that.

The precedent has been set in football with allowing 15% capacity in - which for us, would be around 2000.

I'm not confident any sport will see fans again until at least May at the very earliest, and would imagine the restrictions will be in force for virtually the whole of this season (though has been said, that won't be as much as a headache for us as it will be clubs that operate close to capacity or who have small capacity stadia).
