National League: In recognition of the financial uncertainty facing its member clubs, The National League is actively engaged with Government, with the assistance of The Football Association, to secure a critical financial support package

Thursday 24th September 2020

The National League has issued the following statement following its board meeting this afternoon:

 

“In recognition of the financial uncertainty facing its member clubs, The National League is actively engaged with Government, with the assistance of The Football Association, to secure a critical financial support package and it is hoped this can be announced very soon.

“It is imperative the revenue shortfall caused by the pause to the safe return of spectators is responsibly addressed so each club can operate sustainably over the course of the forthcoming season.”

Fans are banned to watch games in the three National League divisions, while 600 can watch games in the Isthmian League Premier Division, 400 in the division below and 300 in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier and First Divisions (in our region).

The situation is made even more farcical when Bromley cannot welcome fans to Hayes Lane but Cray Wanderers can in the Isthmian Premier Division, the same situation at Park View Road where Welling United fans are banned to watch Brad Quinton's men in the National League South but you can still watch Erith & Belvedere play in the ninth-tier of English football at the same venue.
