Council Will Have Big Say In ES Capacity

Herefordshire Council will have a big part to play in determining how many spectators can watch games at Edgar Street whilst Covid-19 regulations are in force.

According to the National League ‘The “socially distanced” capacity for each stadium will vary according to the design, layout and configuration of each ground, and will need to be assessed by each Club in compliance with government guidance and in conjunction with their local authority.'

How that will work out in practice remains to be seen but, for example, one obvious problem will be stewarding spectators to their seats and ensuring there is the required space between each family, group or individual.

Whether every row in the stands can be used is another question that will need to be addressed. 

However the hope remains that spectators will be back at Edgar Street for the start of the season, which is currently October 3rd, always assuming Hereford FC are drawn at home in the FA Cup.
