If somehow we are allowed next week 1000 fans in vs Exeter, are we prepared and ready or will we be turning it down?

If we've sold 1,500 season tickets. How will they decide who can and can't attend?

How about the first 1,000 to apply for a ticket?

Perhaps fans register if they want to go and then if we are still oversubscribed then there's a ballot. With 1,500 season ticket holders and people shielding/not comfortable/unable to attend you might only get a thousand anyway.
That would assume that the club has some means of recording and balloting.
Arsenal have some system going where you register for batches of matches and then they ballot for over-subscription. But they probably have better systems and are 4 x oversubscribed (season tickets v places).

In all probability I can see it being the it will being the West Stand plus a differing stand.

Numbers for the West Stand would easily encompass the 1000, stewarding can be concentrated, one way systems can be monitored, crowd flows and movements can be measured against predictions, access and egress can be reviewed. With this being the bigger and more complex of the three stands any lessons learnt will be projected onto the other two stands.

The key thing here, despite all the planning and work going into the new normal at the Mill is behaviour of the crowd and how they interact with the new normal. But people are people and that is the problem.

Oh, one thing I do know is that the SAG have said that the Bishop Street is shut next week, whatever happens. :lol:

Read somewhere that some are putting season ticket holder’s names in a hat and drawing a 1000 out.

Any one think we will have some fans there on Saturday? I for one could not attend even if I had the chance due to ill health but would be nice to see some of our lot there.

Does the ‘rule of six’ and social distancing apply to penning in animals?

Apparently no season tickets. Selling seats in blocks of 3, blocks of 2 and then single.

It may all change if Johnson decides a further "lockdown" or whatever he chooses to call it.

Like has been said by others on here, it's not about fans being spaced it's when they decide to go to the food bars and toilets.

I'm the opposite and would be there in a moment due to my own reasons and beliefs.

Can't wait to see 1,000 of our most miserable lot back in the mill. Crossed arms, furrowed brows, heads shaking. Never clap, never cheer, never happy. You know the kind.

I think they have jumped the gun a little bit by announcing this.
If you look on the National League website there is a news item from last Tuesday https://www.thenationalleague.org.uk/national-league-statement-safe-return-of-spectator-63598 saying the NL Chairman had written to the government requesting that all NL grounds are allowed up to 1,000 spectators from October as a temporary solution, as the NL restart depends upon crowds being allowed into stadiums.
3 days ago the NL announced 4 test events at friendlies - 3 tomorrow night and then County on Saturday.
As there is no further update on the NL website, I find it hard to understand how Cheaterfield think they are letting 3,500 into their first home game.
Their 'socially distanced' capacity may have been confirmed by the local authority for when crowds are allowed back, as ours had to be in order for us to sell season tickets, but until the government gives the go ahead for 'elite sports' to have crowds in stadiums they cannot have any spectators, let alone 3,500.
Today's announcements from the government suggest that won't be happening any time soon.
EFL clubs and fans have the benefit of Ifollow (for all it's pros and cons) but the NL do not have anything in place to give all clubs online coverage, so at the moment there is a distinct possibility that the NL doesn't start at all in October, with or without fans in the grounds.

Thanks for that Dave. Up to 1,000 would seem more sensible as things stand at the moment.

With the tv announcement today and the government having a COBRA meeting tomorrow ontop of infections rising I’d say the chances of going back to the football in October and probably this year is sadly going to be somewhere between Zero, zilch and nothing.

I hope and pray that I’m wrong, really really really do, I just can’t how they’re going to go round telling folk you can’t socialise with others next door but 2,500 or so of you can go to the footy, nah.

Also sadly it would send a contradictory message, unfortunately football is the easy scapegoat too often, imagine the lazy comments from folk complaining saying they cant see their family but “a bunch of thugs can go have a jolly up at the football”

I will be watching all the games this season whether it is on my TV or live.The club should not be too badly off with the number of season tickets sold and the revenue from i-follow.I have been a regular attendee at away matches over the last few seasons and enjoyed the craic with other supporters.Watching the game at home with a fellow fan is ok.Not the same but at least it is better than not watching a game at all.COYS.
