Saw some of the Chairmans interview on Facebook, he was saying that if grounds were opened to fans with reduced capacities it would be Season Ticket holders who'd get priority.

No problem with that in principle, but the difficulty would be that you'd probably have to move people around to maintain the distancing....ie the seats which you've got your s/t for might not necessarily be the ones you get  for the first few games.
Would sort of defeat the object if the West Stand Upper was full of people along with the middle of the North, whilst the Lower West, East and South were empty......and then if you're a family with West Stand tickets can you all sit together or will you be spread out too?! Logistically a bit of a challenge.

My hope is that by September the number of cases in the UK is so small (and its only 1 in 2300 now) clubs like ours wouldn't be affected too much, 7000 inside Sixfields is less of a "risk" than 30000 inside the Stadium of Light purely on the amount of carriers who may be present?

People will use common sense, we are not all clowns. Outdoor events are far less likely to transmit the virus so it shouldn't take too much organisation to make it safe for those content to take the risk. Far less dangerous than indoor places such as shopping centres and pubs.
**** loads of people caught coronavirus at the liverpool athletico madrid game
There was a very large local spike two weeks later that suggests sitting inside a football stadium is far from safe.

Not quite proven fact yet Shoey, although there was a spike of cases in Liverpool, it was on 12th April nearly a month after the game, as a balanced view, Birmingham also saw a spike in infections on 12th April. Maybe you should really start checking your facts out on all subjects before you start posting ?  Grin

Fact there was a large spike in cases after the liverpool
game and that is generally accepted.
Fact there was a large spike in the weeks after the Cheltenham festival in the general area GL52 postcode.

If you have large social gatherings then you are at much more risk if you attend.

Thatís not rocket science is it??

Makes not a jot of difference to me as Iím unable to attend anyway but itís entirely up to those who may be able to attend whether they do.

The fact is itís all to do with consumer confidence and while there is a killer virus circulating amongst the general public I would hazard a guess many elderly/vulnerable or others that live with people in those groups will be giving gatherings a swerve.

Others who feel it is safe and wonít effect them will throw caution to the wind and attend (dependant on age restraints etc if they come into force)

Iím all for season ticket holders only being allowed if itís safe but I have my doubts.

Iíd imagine the option to watch the games on ifollow will be rolled out for those in high risk groups such as myself.

I personally think things will get a lot worse in winter and games will be BCD anyway and hereís something ....
When people are at pubs / shopping /events etc itíll be fun when people will be inevitably coughing and sneezing  Shocked Shocked
You wonít be thinking that chaps got a cold and that should make for exciting times ahead Undecided Wink

and how would everybody exit the stadium as well? Row by row? Can't see that happening with some of the clowns out there that think things don't apply to them
And what about walking up the steps outside as well?

Where there this a will there is a way!

a) Every fan temp is taken prior to game.
b) As many of the town's people are tested for Cov-19 symptons
c) Make it an offence if you go to a game with the symptoms
d) Yes, file out of the ground by section, similar arrangement for toilet use.
e) No drinking prior to games but water is ok.
f) Wear masks most of the time.
g) Limit capacity to assist 1m rule.
h) Will need some good no nonsense stewards
i) Everybody goes must detail their contact info ; for track and trace purposes.
j) Outdoor pursuits less likely to spread the virus
k) Those people who are part of the 2.2m high risk group should be excluded.
l)  Find a vaccine!!

Plenty there to argue, dismiss or even add to

Good luck!

As far as I am aware Northampton is about 1 in 2000 - so in theory the risk is small. If we can take some reasonable precautions it might just work with track and trace.

Wouldn't it be better to ensure it's safe first? Huh?

Shouting is also a big issue for football crowds. Studies have shown droplets can be propelled between 6-10 feet.

And singing. Sixfields, like other places of worship, would need to prohibit singing.

I wasn't being sarcastic, I agree it would almost certainly have been unfounded speculation their part, but I mentioned it because the person is an employee on the non playing side.
Regards international weekends, I had no idea, but would leagues one and two have to defer to that if the season is underway by then?
