With a start date in place for the new season, we are currently focussing on ensuring that the Fan Park satisfies all the current guidelines to ensure that we can get back to normal (whatever that is now!) when the season starts.
Of course, we are all familiar with the major changes to pubs, which will extend to the Fan Park also. This will allow us to maintain social distancing and use track and trace records, ensuring the safety and well-being of you, the fans, and our hardworking matchday staff.
We have not yet calculated the impact on our matchday capacity, but as all fans will need to be seated it will obviously reduce quite significantly.
Like other venues, in recognition of the restrictions, we are working on establishing a booking system, the precise details of which will be released nearer to the time.
However, at this early stage we plan to extend priority booking purely for Trust members (annual, life or 500 club members) and as such, may not be able to guarantee entrance for any non-members. Older fans may well remember the need for season tickets in the Prentonian Suite (now Aldo's) in the 1990s!
For fans who are not yet members, and who want to gain access to priority booking when it opens, please consider one of the options available on the Trust web site.
We can't wait to see you all again in the Fan park, and for football to start again.
Stay well, stay safe!
