FSA Statement: The return of fans to football grounds
Posted on 22nd September 2020
Following this morning’s announcement of a pause in the plans for a staged return of supporters to stadiums from October 1st Kevin Miles, chief executive of the Football Supporters’ Association, said:
“The FSA has written to the Government to stress how important it is that we start to allow fans back into games. Feedback from our members at test events has confirmed high levels of compliance with all the health and safety measures put in place, and that they felt safer at games than they have done in many other social situations.
“Having fans at games is of course not only important to the lives of supporters, it is also crucial to the survival of so many clubs who play a crucial role within their communities. A combination of revenue at the ground and government support is urgently needed to keep clubs going. The Government has to listen to fans and football clubs on this one.”
