Re: Unlock tentative steps

A report on the BBC suggests that from today pilot events will be paused and return of limited crowds pushed back, without substancial financial support could be a disaster.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

Now official on BBC football site pushed back for the foreseeable disaster can see National League not starting season and ok it's watchable on IFollow but if I,m honest the absence of crowds make the game a shadow of itself really fear for the long term future of smaller clubs including us.

Slowly losing interest watching on telly through any format just isn't the same and I bet though they might be reluctant to admit are a lot of others.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

Reports emerging from the BBC sport channel this morning spectators could be locked out of sports venues until March, we have reached the point of no return regarding any financial support package next 1 or 2 weeks will decide the future for many clubs throughout all sports.

the national league have already said that they woulf not start without fans and have no plans yet for live streaming. aldershot however have made their own plans to do it. as for more clubs going under a lot will depend on how clubs actually totally rely on gate money. can see those like forest green being ok but you must feel for others. can see some owners just walking away as they feel enough is totally enough afyer years of doing a good job propping up clubs.

Some clubs have had Covid 19 protection clauses built in to new player contracts without income can see these being applied.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

Just listened to a very good interesting and forthright honest interview on Radio Lancashire with Rod Taylor co-chairman at Morecambe FC, bluntly saying that without fans or a aid package clubs even at Championship level will go to the wall. In Morecambe's case as it stands they can operate for a couple of months.

With respect Andy one to two weeks is just scare mongering.
Not saying the situation isnt heading towards critical but now the Government has formally stated that it "could be" March before a return now is when earnest progression will be made regarding funding and how football can be under pinned.

One or two weeks aren't my words these are coming from various sources chairman, supporters groups and volunteers starting the season to me with no "package" on the table was always a risk people including myself say the premiership should help out but in a real world why should they, time and again in football the powers that be have been pretty awful. But this isn't just football this is every sporting competition,s across the country that could be irreparablely damaged never to return in certain areas, not easy but the time is now and the clock is ticking.

IFollow revenue I haven't a clue because no figures for who actually is paying on the day, but last season's average home gate was 2862 take away 950 ticket holders leaving average 1982 pay on the day Andy Holt said we made around 12.50 after costs so about 549700 gate receipts, then you have all the rest bar,food programme takings etc on the day.Andy Holt already said since March club close to losing million.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

Dover Athletic chairman who has pumped 4 million of his own money in to the club over 15 years claims it takes 80000 a month to run at that level 960000 per annum soon starts to look unsustainable without fans the bread and butter.
