Spectators allowed to attend club games

The Stormont Executive have announced easements of relegation’s regarding spectators attending outdoor events.

The Armagh club leagues continue this weekend with games played across Friday and Sunday while the LGFA games take place on Saturday.

Last weekend we witnessed empty grounds around the county as club games were played.

We also had the farcical image doing the rounds on social media of the crowd gathered outside the Maghery grounds as spectators were denied access.

From Friday the 24th of July spectators will be allowed to attend outdoor sporting events “where the operator can control access and ensure adherence to social distancing”.

Ulster GAA, having consulted with the GAA, are advising that “in GAA grounds with perimeter fencing with viewing access on all four sides there should be no more than 400 people present at a game (including essential match personnel)”.

“In all other grounds the number of people attending a game (including essential match personnel) should be limited to a maximum of 250, though in some cases (e.g. grounds with no perimeter fencing) the number might be lower”.

This will be music to the hears of plenty throughout the county as they can once again see there club teams in action.
