Return of fans

Postby Delight on Tue May 25, 2021 2:57 pm

Any word on when fans will be allowed to return to games? Lots of talk on the news about fans returning to football (despite large numbers of them sticking two fingers up at Covid rules) but I haven't heard anything about rugby. I would have thought at Murrayfield we could all go and still socially distance :D

Would be good if we got a few in for Ulster match on 05 June but i think unlikely now at short notice otherwise that is us until next season.

Still 10 days away, at least an official statement would help.

No fans back for the Ulster game, concentrating on preparing for the lions game apparently.

i think its a real shame, it was a chance to get some in, even in minifield as a trial, surely could have got a couple of thousand in which woudl have covered ST holders. Although the Castle Club membership may have complicated things.

I know we want to have a full house to kick off, but we cant just wait and wait.

If football can make it work, surely we could have. Ah well.

Yeah would have been good chance to give ST holders an opportunity to try seats in the new stadium before having to select them for next season. More so, if as expected, there are more pricing options and at a higher cost. Perhaps there will be an event or something ahead of the ST sale.
