National League provides update on return of spectators

10 May 2021

The National League have released a statement regarding the return of spectators, meaning the Club can now start preparing for the return of the Bee Army to The Hive London!

Full Statement:

The National League can confirm plans are ongoing for the anticipated return of spectators at Vanarama National League matches from Monday 17th May.

Subject to the Government easing lockdown restrictions in England, clubs will be issuing details on their media channels for the remaining games of the 2020/21 campaign in due course. Wrexham AFC have been in full consultation with The National League.

Clubs have been requested to submit an Operational Plan to The National League for approval. Permission must also be sought from their Local Authority.

Stadium capacities have been calculated using methodology provided by the Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA) to ensure social distancing is in place.

Through consultation with its members, The National League has determined only home supporters will be able to attend league matches from May 17th and each of the play-off eliminators and semi-finals.

As a neutral fixture, supporters of both participating clubs in the Vanarama National League Promotion Final will be able to attend in limited numbers. Details of a date and venue are currently being finalised.

The National League looks forward to welcoming supporters back to matches from May 17th.

This marks great progress towards the unrestricted return of spectators. 

ENDS 

Under the current plan and subject to lockdown restrictions being eased, we will be able to welcome Bees fans to our last two matches of the season against Maidenhead United (Tues 25th May) and Sutton United (Sat 29th May). Please keep your eyes peeled across our channels for more information on this in the coming days. 

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Hive London soon!
