Details of the National League re-start dates

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

This week the National League sent out to us a letter stating that subject to FA ratification the new season for teams in the National League North and South would re-start on the 3rd of October with FA cup second qualifying round ties, with fans allowed, subject to government guidance. The number of fans will be determined by each individual ground is what we are lead to believe and not a simple percentage of the total maximum gate. We are currently reviewing the guidance and estimating what our safe maximum would be under these conditions. Currently we believe (and this is subject to change) that the games will require track and trace on all fans (which the new season tickets will help with) and that in all likelihood we will be all ticket at every home game, with preference being given to home season ticket holders.

The National League North and South will be made up of either 42 or 40 rounds of fixtures depending on how many teams will be in each league. If the National League North is the lower number we will refund to any one who has already purchased a season ticket the admission for the that one less game and adjust season ticket prices as soon as we know the exact number of games.

Unfortunately we have already sold out of all of our hospitality packages and our Associate Directorships. If we can secure more capacity in the future we will let you know, but be ready to move quick as Sharon’s gorgeous home cook meals are in hot demand.

The current guidance means that all pre-season friendlies will be behind closed doors, so we are preparing to live stream all of these games so that you can get your BPA fix! Details will follow.

The final league game for the 20/21 season is scheduled for the 29th of May 2021 with the play-offs to be held in June. This time scale is subject to FA approval.

As things develop in this fast moving landscape we will keep you up to date on what we know as quickly as we can.
