Following the fixture against Forest Green on Saturday 5th December 2020 we are in consultation with the relevant safety authorities to review the “Return of Crowds Test Event” and to agree on the next steps in preparation for our next home fixture against Salford on Saturday 19 December 2020.As part of the review we are looking at increasing the attendance capacity by opening other stands including the AON Stand (The Kop).
As of Thursday 10th December we have confirmation that we can use the Aon Kop for our match on 19 Dec against Salford City.
Details of allowed capacity, ticketing and match day arrangements will be issued once agreed with the safety authorities.
We will keep everyone informed with the progress of these discussions leading up to the Salford match.
Club staff continue to work extremely hard and are driven to increase supporter numbers at matches.
All our discussions and efforts are subject to Government guidelines and Covid19 announcements.
The club, players and management were overwhelmed on Saturday to see supporters back at The Envirovent Stadium.To see faces and hear noise booming from the stands was what we all hope is the start of a return to normal.
All our plans went to plan and everyone played their part in the Test Event.
