I've emailed the FA threatening them to re-arrange our home fixtures for when I'm not in work otherwise I'm travelling to away games with a lovely COVID/Nuclear cocktail.

Sounds like most of the North might be tier 3 with maybe London in tier 2.

Other areas tier 1.

going by the numbers Barrow should be in tier 1, but we'll probably be put in tier 2 with the rest of Cumbria.
It's about the only time being in Cumbria sounds better than Lancashire - as that's likely to be tier 3....

Not a single club in the EFL will have 4000 fans as Tier 1 only Cornwall, Isle of White or Isles of Scilly.

No fans for Vale yet.

We'll have up to 2,000 fans for the Salford home match. Looking forward to all the nonsense arguments regarding being "forced" to wear a mask, faux outrage over players taking the knee, and the entitled kids screaming for the manager to get the boot. Exciting times.

London in Tier 2, so we've confirmed that we're now in discussions with our local council and hope to be able to accomodate 2,000 fans, at our next two home games Bristol Rovers and Newport, but it will be season ticket holders only and there will be a ballot.

We have 3,000 season ticket holders.

We're tier 2. Only have around 1600 season tickets so fairly straight forward

Each Club will be different in terms of numbers needed to be viable when open, so I wonder whether any will just keep playing BCD.

Those being let in initially will be those who've already paid, and stewards etc will be needed, which is another cost.

There's a bloke who usually stands near me whose voice gradually deteriorates over the course of the season. I'd imagine with 8 months off it'll be in tip top condition.

Is that the old bloke that barks like a seal? Sometimes more entertaining than the actual match.

we are tier 2 but have about 3500 season ticket holders so a ballot will take place.

We're in tier 3 because people who live 40/50 miles away haven't got their rates down. We have lower rates than pretty much every borough in London yet they are tier 2 and we're tier 3. It's an absolute disgrace.

That's him, his words are legible in August.

There's another bloke that's going a similar way who has something against linesmen.

Be interesting to see what happens, a lot are now moaning that its a non level playing field with some clubs having backing of fans but others not (which is a fair point) and other clubs suggesting it would be costly to only open to smaller numbers due to costs of opening up.

Well we’re in tier 2 because we have Peterborough in our county. Even if they were covid free you’d be at risk of catching everything else under the sun there.

The fact that in the Morecambe Bay health trust, your rates are lower than ours shows how nonsensical it is. In theory, if Carlisle's rates go up any further, we could be dragged into Tier 3 with them.

Sounds like the entire Johnny King Stand at Prenton Park. We let the officials know our opinions of them.

especially when Barrow and the surrounding area would be tier one when you go off the numbers

We didn't take the knee when we played in front of fans in the pilot game v Southend. I was a little relieved at that as I was expecting outrage from the usual suspects unable to live with the idea that their team's players care about institutional racism. There was a few people posting on the forum and N&S comments sections saying that if Carlisle players take the knee this season then they're done with the club. Bit ridiculous that of all the reasons fans could have gone with for why they're severing ties with a club they've supported for years, their club opposing racism is the one they can't abide. With us being one of the only games on any negative publicity would no doubt have been focused on us because as we all know Premier League fans are absolute angels.

South Lakeland's numbers look similar to Carlisle's. Would probably be hard to justify putting Barrow in tier one since the boundaries of Barrow are so tight to the town.

From the Carlisle site;-

Please note - only fans living in a Tier 1 or 2 Zones can come to games at Brunton Park.

If you live in a Tier 3 Zone, the arrangements that were in place prior to Thursday's announcement will continue unchanged.

We are sorry, but you will not be allowed entry at this time.

Bad news for fans in Haltwhistle and surroundings. No mention of Scotland though; Dumfries & Galloway is in the lowest of Scotland's tiers and has a much lower infection rate than Carlisle, we have a fair few fans travel from there.

Bristol/South Glos are tier 3 which will affect a number of our fans too.

Why were you playing Salford on a Thursday afternoon?
