DCMS confirms Spectator ban

It has been confirmed that spectators will not be allowed to attend matches at SCEFL Grounds until at least May 17th

The DCMS today released their guidance that has applied since Step 1b (March 29th) and continues when Step 2 of the Government Roadmap comes in to effect from April 12th.

“Outdoor grassroots sport and outdoor organised team and sports participation events are allowed to resume, but spectators will not be permitted at sporting events taking place on private land, with the exception of adults only where they are needed to supervise under-18s that they have a responsibility for or providing care or assistance to a person with disabilities participating in an organised sporting event or activity.

These adults should maintain social distance and not mix with other households.

This does not prevent people from viewing recreational or organised sport that is taking place in a public space (e.g. a park), in groups of up to 6 people or 2 households.

However, sporting events that are intended to attract spectators (including ticketed events), or events that are likely to attract a significant number of spectators (e.g. a major marathon), should not take place in a public space, or on private land, until Step 3 on May 17th.”
