Covid 19 update – Aldershot Town FC

Following last week’s announcement from the FA, which outlined the gradual return of spectators for clubs in the National League System, we are delighted to welcome supporters back to Wheatsheaf Park for our next home friendly which is against Aldershot Town FC on Saturday 29th August.   (Kick off 3PM)

Stage one of the phased return set out by the FA has limited clubs at step four to permit crowds of 15% of the minimum capacity for that level, in our case 200 spectators.   From the 30th August this number will increase to 30% allowing us to host up to 400 spectators. The phased and limited return of spectators at these levels will be kept under constant review in line with the UK Government’s guidelines and will be amended accordingly as required.

Track and Trace details will be taken at the turnstile on arrival, so please arrive to the ground early to allow time for this information to be taken and most importantly to ensure you are one of the lucky 200 to gain entry and watch the game.

If we reach the 200 spectator limit then unfortunately we will have to close the turnstile and refuse entry to any queuing spectators.

So to avoid disappointment we recommend arriving at Wheatsheaf Park early to give you the best chance of admission to the ground.

You’ll find a few additional precautions in place at Wheatsheaf Park, so please pay close attention to the signs and any PA announcements,  Hot food and refreshments will be available on the day.
