Match Attendances During Covid-19

(Oldest Posts First)

Government anouncement this morning - 200 can attend games in large grounds with 5K capacity & 100 in smaller grounds. Where does that leave Darver? How many allowed in?

I'd imagine the games will be played now as normal in places with stands

Not sure that will happen with the convenience of having LuTv set up in Darver. And plus if the games are in stands it encourages all people to be sitting beside each other in the stand which shouldn't be allowed so I'd say most games will remain in Darver

How can it? There is no ground in Louth certified to hold 5K+ to my knowledge? 100 per match is what is allowed.

They just about got away with Darver, big drawback being the pitch isn't up to scratch.
I'd be 99% certain games will be moved now

Looks like programme of matches will continue in Darver with attendances limited to 100 for each game. Co Board officials will empty venue after each game to prevent stragglers hanging on after their game has finished ...... good luck with that

From what I heard they are putting most of the games out as normal and only a few in Darver colm corrigan verified that.
