Potentially for League 1 level sports the return to crowds (as low percentage of small venues) could be sooner.

It could be as few as two games without fans for League One clubs, which is a small positive for them. 

Possibly seven games without fans for the Championship. 

I'm not sure that's just serendipity.

I suspect the late start was geared to a shrewd guess as to whether crowds could return.

Only 3,300 will be allowed in at Widnes for their first game back with fans, who are going to be the unlucky 3,300?

Where are they going to find 1300 extra people from??

I wonder if there will be calls for some games to be deferred to after May17th.This would probably mean midweek fixtures which is not ideal but if you can play after that date with fans it is worth considering.

They had already moved the Easter fixtures to be fair, I suspect in readiness for today's announcement

From the Guardian:

Step 3 – no earlier than 17 May

For sport, indoor venues can have up to 1,000 spectators or half capacity, whichever is lower; outdoors the limit will be 4,000 people or half capacity, whichever is lower. Very large outdoor seated venues, such as big football stadiums, where crowds can be spread out, will have a limit of 10,000 people, or a quarter full, whichever is fewer.

I wonder what the definition of "very large outdoor seated venues" is? Perhaps Wigan, Hull FC and Huddersfield will qualify which would give them capacity to let in around 6000 fans. Looking promising.

I took that as being anything that could be considered a stadium, as in not the touchline separated by a bit of rope at a local club. 

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

I would say season ticket holders first and foremost, then on application and drawn out of an hat.

Just re-read it Keith, and can now see the humour in your post.

Doed this include rl? 

I think there was a question in Parliament about this, I believe so and rugby was specifically mentioned with the clarification being, yes but not with scrums.

Huddersfield getting 6000 fans in wouldn’t be promising,it would be a miracle.

Who are Huddersfield going to let use their ground to hit that number?
