Default Re: Statement responding to 'social media storm' "Regarding Wrexham DSA & Viewing Platform" (Sunday)

Club statement: 'Unfortunately, Wrexham AFC were further unable to facilitate this request due to the tunnel area being restricted from 2pm onwards on matchday. This operation is standard practice at all of our home games.'

My question: Why does this rule not apply to match day sponsor guests who are photographed on the pitch prior to kick-off?

Where did you find these rules ???
