Pity there is no way they could televise Wrexham's games or any other National games as a pay per view, At Least they would get some income.

Good point about televised games. After watching the bulk of last seasons games, I wouldn’t be prepared to spend more than five quid to watch a Keates prepared team play.

His basic premise, which in my view is correct, is that we have to get life back to some form of normality and manage the risks as best possible. This includes, at some point, mass events.
Coming back to a new season and mass events I think we will see something well less than a mass event at the Racecourse back end of September. The way I see things happening is firstly the National League hint towards a resumption of their leagues with a reduced number of supporters present under strict controls. The club would then release season tickets telling supporters that they will probably need one to get into the ground. Starting off matches at 30% capacity which would mean around 2500 maximum in the stadium spread socially distant across all three stands . Those who have moaned all winter about Spencer , Pete, Keates and the board will presumably not apply and could catch a bus to watch the Jesters . That would leave plenty of space for those with season tickets to enjoy the matches. All problems solved!

Agree with is idea as it would manage crowds , at least in the short term.

Can anyone remember what the attendance we need to break even on home games is?

Back in March when there was around 150 deaths from Covid in a day most poeple were scared,worried because we had no idea what we were dealing with and no cure.People were shocked it coukd kill so many on a daily basis. Yesterday was the same amount of deaths. We still have no cure and we still know little about how to deal with it but wd have become complacent. 'Oh,there were only 150 deaths. Its all good,nearly gone!' Yeah,thats because of lockdown and people adering to social distancing measures on the whole.
Give me one good reason why yhings like football matches should be allowed to go ahead with crowds. The only reason The Premier League is up and running again is money. No other reason whatsoever. Otherwise,why aren't the lower leagues doing the same? Simple.It brings minimal benefit to our wonderful government. There are more people going to work in factories such as Airbus than we get through the turnstiles on your average week.
But thats ok because of the financial implications involved.
