Why assume the worst about Vale/football fans?

Fans will be aware that any poor behaviour might reduce the capacity of the stadium. Poor behaviour or failure to follow the new rules might lead to them as individuals being unable to go to football. That should be a sobering thought.

I’m not assuming the worst. I’m merely pointing out the obvious.

Had to laugh as I was  standing in a queue to buy my season ticket today.  Turned around and read an old sign up outside the Railway turnstile. All face coverings of any kind must be removed befo

If the season finishes now then surely we will be promoted in second place?

Why no away fans? Hypothetically, a Vale fan can't watch Vale away at Stoke but can travel to work in Manchester. An exiled fan in London can travel to Vale Park to watch a Home game. I am now th

What I will add that say the Government do allow fans back soon, Vale is probably as well suited as any in the division to take less of a hit on numbers... 25% would probably fit our average home support in...

The concourse area's of the Railway would be well suited being outdoors as the consensus seems that indoors is a problem... you also have the huge land that ground is on... so for example you could put temporary fencing up and toilets to and extend the concourse area, so you have the Paddock Gates wide open for eg and enter via the fenced area put further forward, this would give more space and less clogging up near the food areas (burger Vans for eg maybe to help?) The Away end which lets assume is now home only you could do the same, a temporary fenced area pushing out onto the car park to give more outdoor concourse areas and ease access and again with the Lorne Street out onto the bottom of the car park there would add some extra space.

Bycars is the only one with less space but again its not really enclosed spacing there.

I personally dont have a Season Ticket so I dont know if I will get to a game down to the limits on capacity as rightly ST holders get first access so hoping it is 5000-6000 capacity and I can get to some games as normal, I will certainly be there and trust the set up we have now to do all they can to accommodate safely.

 

The only club in all four divisions who could get all our average gate in with only 25% seating capacity allowed bar Coventry at Birmingham.

This is the Accrington revised guideline, obviously all clubs will be different due to capacity, concourses, facilities, entrance/exit, etc.

I presume the Vale may need test events as above, but it seems possible that fans will be back quiet soon.

Based on Accrington's plans then they appear to be allowing 28% capacity.

This would suggest if ours is 19052 we are allowed around 5300.

28% is a very specific number.

I would bet it is a very specific number because much of the ground is terracing, and because of the very small, narrow facilities they have in terms of concourses.

I reckon ours would a greater number.

I would assume its 30% but they've had to segregate little bits off for example.

No singing, chanting or shouting. There's going to a lot of nodding in the stands when goals go in! 😄

what a farce, if these rules are right we might as well pack up.

If I've read this right, the test event between Brighton and Chelsea is only allowed to have 2500 fans. That's just over 8% of the total. I presume that's not going to be the final figure or we're down to about 1500. Fingers crossed!

Just been chatting to a Stokie mate at work, they are splitting their season tickets up in to 2 batches of 11 home games for each season ticket, with 9000 being sold to each game. So in effect they are trying to allow one of half their season ticket holders to see half the home matches and the other half will get to see the other 11.

The interesting thing is that they are expecting crowds back in after 2 home games and they are allowing approx. 30% capacity in to the ground, if that's the case for us too then we should easily manage to get everyone in that wants to see us play.

As I understand it, they only used one of the four stands for that game.
