Will 2000 want to attend?
What health and safety measures are needed?
Face masks to be worn!
Two metre space at the loos!
NO indoor catering. Can we bring a flask, are own multi pack chocolate bar and sandwiches!
After taking care since March I will make do with Radio Norfolk, the Championship on Quest and Match of the Day all of which constitutes an adequate diet of football !!
The live football will be enjoyed by the players/management
starting with the great occasion for them next Saturday- a great reward for their efforts in recent times.
COYL.
STAY SAFE - Be patient and look forward with optimism to eradication of the virus!

With a 2 metre space in the loo queue, itíll have to lap round the pitch.

Working in education with the high case rate we have, Iím wary to go myself. Not because Iím all that concerned with getting ill (being on the right side of 40), but I worry about being an asymptomatic carrier, having seen the impact such can cause. Having already decided itís too much of a risk to go the mother-in-laws at Christmas (shame), I canít really justify going to matches.

Streams and radio it is for me this season unfortunately.

Will the match streaming still carry on?

Will the admission price still be the same?

I think SC stated that market forces would dictate and they would need to maximise their income streams where they can.   This is the Club that charges £12 for a stream and £7 for a programme.

@Ollie_Bayliss

The Sports Ground Safety Authority have added an extra caveat to the number of fans who can attend games.

The number of fans allowed can't exceed 'the socially distanced capacity of the ground'.

The guide to calculating that capacity can be read here:

So one person per usable 1m2 if fans are required to wear masks at all times at the stricter measures are used.

Or one person per usable 2.6m2 if fans are required to wear masks in getting to their designated area, but not whilst in said area.

Leading to anywhere between 17% and 33% capacity in seated areas, and 20-50% capacity in standing areas.

Quite a lot is left to the clubs discretion within the guidelines by the looks of it. I guess it's to spread the blame if something goes wrong.

If capacity is greatly reduced and the 84k gov money is no longer forthcoming the club will need to charge a Premium price for admission.

What would people to be prepared to pay to be one of the elite being able to watch the Linnets live, for example would it be worth £30 ?

SC has said he will advise over the weekend the uplift in cost for the games in Dec.   Season ticket holders wonít be charged extra.

Did he say why?

Could it be that a season ticket is a legal contract so he's not allowed to charge more?   :dontknow:

No mention of contractual issue.  More to thank those who supported the club in their time of need ( 160 I think the figure mentioned)  by purchasing season tickets.  They had missed out on seeing fiv games but had been given streaming and a Ďfreeí programme.

Heard on Radio Norfolk that the game for the 1st December MAY be moved to the 2nd to allow fans in.

Apparently not happening and game will still be going ahead on the 1st, with the majority of supporters not being allowed to attend.
