It probably won't affect us straight away as I expect us to be in tier 3 initially, but as social distancing is still reccommended in all tiers, can someone explain how sports venues can adhere to that at 50% capacity ?
This literally means that every 2nd seat can be sold, so there will be no empty rows anywhere. You will potentially have an empty seat either side of you, but everyone will have somebody breathing down their neck.
The 4,000 and 2,000 caps in tiers 1 and 2 will be fine in bigger stadiums at Premiership and Championship level, but it is ludicrous to suggest that it will be safe in smaller stadiums. 50% is too high for any venue at the moment, and it definitely doesn't make sense to half the maximum number between tiers 1 and 2, but keep the maximum percentage the same.
