We now have confirmation that the EFL 2020/21 season will start on September 12th which will be behind closed doors. The return of crowds in some form is anticipated to be in October but we await further details.

Although we welcome the return of football the priority is ensuring the safety of everyone involved. To this end we will be involved with the club in the detailed plans to ensure the matchday arrangements are as safe as possible and that the regulations are clear to everyone. The framework for this will be the Sports Ground Safety Authority (SGSA) guidelines and we will then overlay for any specific issues relevant to Blundell Park. The guidelines are very comprehensive (85 pages) and covers all aspects of the match day routine from arrival to going home. As part of the planning process we are looking for input from fans with particular thoughts, concerns or ideas on their return to Blundell Park. We will then incorporate these into discussions over the coming weeks.
