After reviewing the National League guidance, the SGSA regulations and consulting with local authorities we can confirm that our ground capacity for the new season will be set at 522.
This is very close to our average attendance from last season of 484 and this year, as well as the minimum 10% of the capacity we are obliged to give to away fans, we have our youth fan initiative for the academy, which will take up some of the available space.
This is of course challenging and disappointing after so long away from the Horsfall, and we will be doing our best to accommodate everyone who wants to come down and enjoy the re-vamped stadium (many thanks to the Avenue and West Bowling volunteers ably encouraged by Neil Fawcett and Martin Tordorff and guided by our groundsman Sean Bourke).
Season ticket holders will be getting preference for attendance on match days, so if you haven’t already bought one, now’s the perfect time to ensure you are not one of the ones who are disappointed come kick off.
Remember your season ticket will also act as your virtual season ticket if we play behind closed doors and give you free access to the Pay Per View live streaming of our matches that will commented on by our very own Mick Gledhill. In the event that the season is curtailed we will refund pro rata for any home league matches that are cancelled, making it completely risk free.
We look forward to seeing you all very soon where we can get behind the mighty Mark Bower Green and White Army
