After consultation between both clubs we have agreed not to take our allocation of 90 tickets for this game.
We have discussed at length the implications of this decision for all involved. The impact of the covid-19 pandemic has given all clubs huge difficulties in meeting the ever-changing requirements needed to put a game on and so far, Stafford Rangers FC have achieved this.
Our overwhelming objective has been to keep fans, staff, and volunteers safe and ensure that we reduce as much as possible the likelihood of transmission in the community because that’s the right thing to do. We have now needed to consider the responsibility we have by not encouraging fans to travel to areas that have a higher infection rate than that which exists in our hometown.
In respect of FC United we believe that we have a moral responsibility to not encourage fans to travel and we will not be taking up the allocation of 90 tickets on this occasion. It is a difficult decision, and we ask for your understanding.
No tickets will be available on the day from FC UM as the entire allocation will be taken up by their season ticket holders.
