Default New Season threatened

Thoughts.

Listening to Wales First Minister at his briefing today it seems that his advisors are suggesting that 'mass' gatherings are unlikely to be allowed . There was an indication that such gatherings might not be allowed until the schools start back. (September perhaps).

I took mass gatherings to equate to football crowds and the such. Should the country see a rise in the R rate we might see problems in opening any new sporting season - including organised football.

Should we see no improvement on the health front, plus an impending rise in Covid19 as we head in to a cold damp winter period. it might be questionable whether a football season can be organised in the way we have always known.

Clubs big and small, Full time and part time seem to have an uncertain future. Lets hope we will see some light at the end of a very long tunnel.
Without doubt, anyone involved in managing clubs will have to be creative in the way they keep their club alive in order to reach the end of that tunnel

I'd be very surprised if the season starter in August, at least with fans in the stadium. With the way things are progressing, I'd expect fans to be allowed to watch games around the same time children return to school. Back to normal by September was governments plan from the start

You could condense the season into 2 games a week and cancel the cup games for the season.

So the season becomes around 6 months instead of the usual 9 months.

So you could postpone the season start to say end of sep or oct.

Clubs in England will be playing in front of crowds before those in Wales.

And they'll be dying at higher rates too. Maybe you don't care about that.

I'm no expert so the following are speculations not based on any current knowledge.

Looking at previous pandemics, Spanish Flu, The Plague, the second wave is usually worse than the first. They can also go on for years. Until a successful jab has been developed and is widely available we will have to live with Covid 19.

Following the mass gatherings of the past few days it is almost inevitable that there will be a rise in cases - I expect Government to respond by not allowing 'crowds' to assemble. I would imagine that the Premier League will continue without spectators but that is obviously not an option for lower league and national league clubs. It might mean that there will be no national league season 2020/1 and I think there is likely to be a greater chance of sheep grazing on the Racecourse than us watching our team.

If that is the case then many clubs will not survive - we may all have to support the Club financially until they are in a position to generate their own finances.
