Plans in place for return of fans to National League grounds

The National League has today (Monday) confirmed that plans are being put in place for the return of spectators to grounds from Monday, May 17.

Clubs have been requested to submit an operational plan to the league for approval and permission must be sought from the local authority.

For Maidenhead United this should mean that fans are back inside York Road for the visit of Halifax Town on Saturday, May 22.

Supporters may also be in attendance for their games at Yeovil Town on Tuesday, May 18, Barnet on May 25, and at Boreham Wood on the final day of the season (May 29). However, after consultation with its members the league has determined that only home fans will be able to attend matches, as well as at each of the play-off eliminators and semi-finals.

Clubs are set to issue supporters with details through their various media channels in the coming days.

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

Club CEO Jon Adams has previously said these measures will likely mean the capacity is less than 1,000.
