Can't see the terrace being used for some time - player's entrance! Can't see why the other stands except for the Crumbie can't be used and arrival and dismissal controlled by the stewards - sit where you are told to rather than allocated seats and leave row by row under instruction. Yes like going back to school but I would do that to watch a game
Hehehehehehehehe

Tigers are going to continue to be the worst affected until supporters return, to some extent the others are less bothered about foot fall.

Rugby and cricket members are a pretty responsible bunch when required to be compared to what I'm seeing in some pubs and seaside towns.

Terrace can be tape-boxed so that households/families occupy boxes, with blanks either side and entrance/exit protocols. About 30% capacity BUT individuals would have to go into seating. Attendance could vary with seated one out of two matches, etc. Also think the private Zoom TV idea is a good 'un, so you get a live match then a TV one in your season ticket price.

Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

Bit past Tigers technically I imagine, but the NBA in America, all being played at Disney, you buy your ticket and then somehow they screen you from your living room watching the game, as if from your seat.

Realistically when spectators are allowed in and wanting to keep Stewards at a minimuM for risk of infection, I think the big stand would be used for spectators and the Crumbie for players officials press etc

I wouldn’t Do it to watch a game. It just wouldn’t be enjoyable and that’s ultimately why I go to games.

I have to agree it doesn't sound that appealing - no atmosphere, designated arrival times, waiting after the game has finished in your seat before being allowed to leave.

Plus potentiallly worse kick off times to maximise TV audiences.

Agreed, but at the moment do you take watching live sport under further regulations, or having no crowds at all.

The only other solution would be to build a quick stadium on Bournemouth beach where social distancing doesn’t matter.

Yeah, I know the clubs have no choice but to try and get as many seats filled as possible, I just wonder how many fans really want to pay for the experience if its nothing like a normal match day experience anytime soon.

If they tell me I can go to Welford Road, I'm going, I don't care if it's different...

A game of rugby will be played. That’s all I need. That’s why I pay for a season ticket. I will be there.

I'm glad some people are still keen. But watching a rugby game in a big stadium with zero atmosphere is worse than on TV for me.

I go to WR for the excitement of the crowd, joking with the away fans and having a few beers with friends. None of which is going to be likely any time soon unfortunately.

I totally understand that, and of course different people go to the game for different experiences.

For me it’s all about the rugby and I get as much enjoyment, and frustration, going to watch Leicester Forest 2nds as I do watching Tigers.

Of course it will be different but life is different at the moment. Yes it will be weird sitting in a stadium with not much noise but welcome to the new world. If I get the opportunity to watch Tigers at Welford Road, whether there’s 25000 people there or 2500, the rugby on the pitch will still be played. I’ll turn up, sit in my seat, watch the match and then go home.
