If there were no away supporters we could easily accommodate our normal home crowd,8/900 in the Hamil, same for Bycars , Railway stand and Railway paddock, then possibly a few less in the Lorne st.

the problem in any ground will be the toilets and snack bars.

 Likely to be a trial with only 10% of the capacity, Shouting or singing allowed?  Toilets closed at half time to avoid lengthy queues?   To  avoid queues at  bars, waiter service only?  Temporary dispersal of STs around the ground. Option of bubbles for families / mates.  Time slots for entry? Spacing for exits?  Hopefully  by September things will have eased, but maybe not.

If we limit it to season ticket holders initially you could go in through the big gates on each stand with barriers to channel you in the right direction and scanners available to self scan. That would cover the counting and avoid any ticket office issues.

How about giving out one of these with every season ticket??!

We could maybe erect temporary fencing and make use of the car park space to expand the concourse area's that way and add extra portaloo's, in three of the stands this would be a fairly easy option, unsure on cost mind.

Rumours are 30-40% are being looked at by the EFL in which we would be ok for our standard home support levels pretty much.

Seating itself would be a logistical nightmare if any sort of social distancing is enforced as it'll mean lots of fans, most specifically ST holders, would have to agree not to sit in their prefered / "traditional" seat, possibly even moving into a different stand completely.  ST holders would have to be alloacted a new seat for the duration of any restrictions, or be issued a ticket on a match by match basis.   Obviously how the club decides which exact seat anyone sits in, or who they are adjacent too, as in family members or whoever is in someones "bubble" etc., is difficult to manage and could only really be done on an arbitary first come first served basis.  I think most fans would buy into this but the admin could be horrendous initially.

October opening of stadia

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/53441670  

There is discussion in the Coronavirus topic too, but I have posted here.

Looks like test events will be run @ 40% capacity and see what happens then. Obviously teams are looking @ 12th September start, so that may be of concern.

A September 12th start would be possibly 4 league games and one League cup game by the time October comes. 

That would mean 2 or 3 home games behind closed doors. Would some clubs still be in grave danger of going under if that came to fruition.
