Return to stadiums – a fan’s perspective in the women’s game

The FA Women’s Super League returned to action over the weekend with fans allowed into stadiums – albeit with many new procedures to follow.

Jo Bailey is from FSA associates West Ham United Women Supporters’ Club and she was kind enough to pull together a video highlighting her experiences on Saturday (12th September 2020).

The game took place at Dagenham & Redbridge’s Victoria Ground (aka the Chigwell Construction Stadium) and, although things didn’t go according to plan on the pitch, Jo felt comfortable with the safety mesaures in place.

“Did we feel safe? Yes, we did,” says Jo.
