Fans return to stadiums tier system


Recommended Posts

Breaking news that fans will be allowed back into stadiums from 3rd December in England.

Surely similar up here?

Supporters will be permitted to attend events in stadiums in England when the national lockdown ends on December 2, says Boris Johnson.

The decision will provide a major boost to governing bodies, which have been forced to postpone events or hold them behind closed doors during the coronavirus pandemic, as well as individual clubs that have been trying to survive without revenue from ticket sales.

Outdoors stadiums in tier 1 areas - deemed to be medium risk by the Government - will be allowed to hold up to 4,000 socially-distanced fans or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer.

Outdoor stadiums in tier 2 areas - viewed to be high risk - can welcome up to 2,000 spectators or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer.

Indoors stadiums in tiers 1 and 2 will be allowed to host up to 1,000 fans or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer.

But both indoor and outdoors stadiums in tier 3 areas - seen as very high risk - will have to continue to hold events behind closed doors.

The Prime Minister warned, however, the Government's coronavirus tier system will be strengthened when the national lockdown ends on December 2, meaning more areas will fall into higher tiers than previously.

Sounds a bit harsh but I’d rather we kept fans away until we’re out of sight...

You obviously haven’t met the SNP...

Obviously haven't been in the Covid thread then, Terry Hurlock and Blue Avenger has Scotland needing to be in full and total lockdown for the next 3 years as an absolute minimum.

Although it would be great to have fans back I think it's moronic, still in lockdown just now and suddenly fans are allowed back in some way as soon as we come out of lockdown?

BJ is a complete moron

Its moronic that an 80,000 capacity stadium could be 5% full at 4000 fans.

Yet there could be smaller stadiums at 50% capacity.

Surely it’ll a certain percentage though? So it won’t be 2000 in a 4000 stadium

Outdoors stadiums in tier 1 areas - deemed to be medium risk by the Government - will be allowed to hold up to 4,000 socially-distanced fans or half of their maximum capacity, depending on which is fewer.

That suggests it would be 2000 fans in a 4K stadium? Seems mental to me personally if that is the case.
