The National League can confirm plans are ongoing for the anticipated return of spectators at Vanarama National League matches from Monday, May 17.
Subject to the Government easing lockdown restrictions in England, clubs will be issuing details on their media channels for the remaining games of the 2020/21 campaign in due course. Wrexham AFC have been in full consultation with The National League.
Clubs have been requested to submit an Operational Plan to The National League for approval. Permission must also be sought from their Local Authority.
Stadium capacities have been calculated using methodology provided by the Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA) to ensure social distancing is in place.
Through consultation with its members, The National League has determined only home supporters will be able to attend league matches from May 17 and each of the play-off eliminators and semi-finals.
