Following Government confirmation that Nottingham will re-enter tier three restrictions when the nation’s second lockdown ends on 2 December, we can confirm that we will not be permitted to welcome supporters back to Meadow Lane for the time being.
Elite football clubs based in tier one and tier two areas of the country will be permitted to play competitive matches in front of a limited number of supporters for the first time since the 2019-20 season was curtailed in March, but those in tier three must continue to play behind closed doors.
Our chief executive, Jason Turner, said: “While we are of course disappointed we’ll have to wait a little longer to play in front of our wonderful home supporters, public safety comes first and we respect the Government’s decision.
“The National League have informed us that they will be conducting an internal meeting on Friday to discuss today’s developments and we look forward to hearing more details ahead of next Tuesday’s meeting of all member clubs, with confirmation expected that away supporters will not be permitted to travel between tiers.
“Our supporters should rest assured that we will continue to plan for their return to Meadow Lane so we can act quickly when Nottingham’s tier three restrictions are lifted.”
