Has anyone got the link for this ?

The time And date  of the games of North And the South are mirrored.  So really it’s a 5 games package but at 3 quid a game ( 14.99 for the bulk purchase) then that is a real bargain.

Starts on Sunday with staggered KO times.   Still no prices though.
Think 5.99 a game
6.99 for final or 9.99 both Finals
Or 14.99 all games
On sports pro media

Thanks Bluboy.

From their website:

"With fans currently unable to attend matches, the service offers supporters options to access games at various price points and the ability to view on connected TVs via Chromecast. Single matches prior to the North and South playoff finals will be priced at UK£5.99 (US$7.56), while each final will cost UK£6.99 (US$8.83) to purchase.

Furthermore, the service will also allow fans to purchase match bundles, including all ten games for UK£14.99 (US$18.93), while a package including the two playoff finals, which are both due to take place on 1st August, have been priced at UK£9.99 (US$12.61)".

All 10 games at £14.99 seems very good, but surely some of the games will be played at the same time?   :dontknow:

Lots of people prefer the non league offering....decent standard, no prima donnas, no VAR..........the playoffs could be a good lead up to it, if they are well supported.

I think you may well be correct. The question I would ask though is, at what price?


If its anymore than that, after the initial flurry of activity due to lack of football and the novelty factor has worn of, I think the interest could well tail off.

A cheaper, convenient and occasional alternative rather than a replacement.   :dontknow:

Apparently our Chairman has predicted that there will be 40,000 people watch the York game at a tenner a head and that’s where future is.

Can’t see the 40,000 myself but paying to watch a game on line could become common practice for some in the future. The price they are prepared to pay will be interesting.

One of the problems I can see is the games will obviously be broadcast to a worldwide audience.

How many will want to tune in to a Lynn or York match when for the same price they can tune into a Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal or United?

The amount in the GDF is looking healthy (thermometer on home page has been updated today), apparently helped by a single donation of £2,000.

Should clubs be sustainable and not spend money they are not generating ?

IMHO, very much so.

It seems a lot are now coming around to this way of thinking, with some even suggesting that the wage bill can't be any higher that the amount taken on the gate.

EFL calls for "reset" of football finance

Responding to the Wigan Athletic crisis, the EFL said this week that a “comprehensive reset” of financing the pyramid was needed to prevent clubs going to the wall.

The Lancashire club, which was acquired by its new Chinese owners on 4th June was placed into administration last week, claiming it was a result of the ongoing public health crisis - something the league has angrily disputed.

Many clubs will be struggling in the coming months and the EFL has said that the distribution of money in the game has to change to prevent more clubs falling into crisis.

The FSA's Ashley Brown said: "What is key is that clubs are run both properly and sustainably, and the situation at Wigan bolsters our argument for independent regulation. From what we’ve seen this week the EFL share fans’ anger at what’s happened at the DW."

Well,just listened to the podcast that Cleeve was interviewed on.This one has got to be the most hilarious thing I’ve heard in years.
And the interviewers were falling for it hook line and sinker which made it even more hilarious.
They really should do their research before they start the interviews!
I have to say that I was expecting to hear something on social distancing and why Footballers should be exempt from the rules,but sadly no mention of that particular subject.

Yes Blu, some of us who have been shielding have little or no option than adhere to the instruction.

Yes, I have stuck to the guidelines but I don't want to be sitting or standing next to some COVIDIOT and to pay the price for their stupidity.  :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;

With the fantastic news that The Linnets have been promoted to The National League, success comes at a cost.
Much work was done last season to achieve the ground grading requirements for the National League North, and a Blue & Gold Trust fundraising effort
raised in excess of £4,000 towards these costs.
Promotion means that much more works will have to be done over the next season to satisfy the ground grading requirements of the National League.
The B&G Trust already have a fundraising initiative as can be seen on this website.
The Trust is now running a competition in an effort to raise further funds for the GDF.
The winner of the competition will win a ground season ticket for the 2020/2021 season.
The season ticket will be purchased by monies generously donated by local business and individual supporters who make up part of our football community.
Each entry into the competition will be at £10 each.  Multiple entries can be made.
Payment for entry can be made via the PAYPAL tab on the home page.  Alternatively, payment for entry by cash or cheque can be forwarded via post to The Blue & Gold Trust, 39, King John Avenue, King’s Lynn PE30 4QB.  Cheques must be payable to the Blue and Gold Supporters’ Trust.
All purchases must clearly be identified as for “Season Ticket Comp”, and contact details included.
All entrants will receive acknowledgement of their payment and all proceeds from the competition will go to the GDF.
The competition will conclude on Monday the 10th of August 2020.

Donations towards the GDF can also be made via PAYPAL by clicking on the GDF Thermometer on the home page or by cheque/cash as above.
Again, any donations must be clearly identified as “GDF donation”.

We would like to acknowledge the generous donations towards the cost of a season ticket from Evergreen Equity Release Solutions, ARC Fabrications, The Solar Shed, HARK Solutions and Lanes Motor Services.  All of the Trust Directors have also made personal contributions.  Many thanks also to Tony M, Colin M and others who have contributed.

Sorry, but the Lads were wrong (and apparently know it).

I don't think there is any negativity here. The essential point is that EVERYONE  has a responsibility to ensure social distancing
including pub landlords. After the sacrifices of the majority over the past three months no one wants a second lock down and the curtailment of the freedoms we all enjoy!

Yes B &G and they keep saying that but doing very little or acting too  late (Leicester) because they haven't put adequate systems in place.. The problem is "adhere to advice or we will act "has been undermined so many times that it's almost ignored by although many still do the right thing, many don't and that is at least in part due to Boris and his entourage.

Fair enough Kes.

So what do you think should happen to the people in the picture, who it would appear are ignoring Social distancing rules? How would you like the Authorities to now act as it appears that these people have not adhered to the advice?
