Posted:Mon 10 May 2021

The Vanarama National League has today outlined plans for the anticipated return of spectators for fixtures. Wrexham AFC are still awaiting specific guidance from the Welsh Government, and can confirm there will be no supporters admitted to the game against Notts County on Tuesday May 18.

As the Welsh Government has taken a different approach to that in England regarding the safe return of supporters to football matches, it is unlikely fans will be attend on May 22 against King’s Lynn Town either.

Wrexham AFC are continuing to liaise with the relevant authorities and will update supporters on the situation when we can.

We will also continue to stream every home match of the season, and provide free, live audio commentary on Mixlr.

For our away match against Dagenham & Redbridge, only home supporters will be admitted to the game and we urge all Wrexham supporters to please respect these guidelines.

Vanarama National League Statement

The National League can confirm plans are ongoing for the anticipated return of spectators at Vanarama National League matches from Monday 17th May.

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 17th and each of the play-off eliminators and semi-finals.

As a neutral fixture, supporters of both participating clubs in the Vanarama National League Promotion Final will be able to attend in limited numbers. Details of a date and venue are currently being finalised.

The National League looks forward to welcoming supporters back to matches from May 17th.

This marks great progress towards the unrestricted return of spectators.
