City of Liverpool FC Vs Cleethorpes Town
Saturday 17th October 2020, 3pm, Berry Street Garage Stadium, L30 1NY
Following detailed communication between City of Liverpool FC, Cleethorpes Town FC, Sefton Council and the Football Association, the club received confirmation this afternoon that this fixture would take place as scheduled.
Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) guidance is that semi-professional players are permitted to travel into and out of Tier 3 areas for the purposes of fulfilling National League System or FA Competition fixtures. Therefore, The FA’s view was that this match should be played as scheduled, unless Sefton Council determined that it should not be played (which Sefton Council has not done).
Further to this, The FA stipulated that away supporters should not be permitted to attend this match and, following further discussion with Sefton Council, City of Liverpool FC agreed that people resident outside of the Liverpool City Region Tier 3 area would also not be permitted to attend this match.
Having considered this guidance, Cleethorpes Town FC has taken the decision not to travel to Merseyside for the match and will, therefore, forfeit the tie.
Supporters who have purchased tickets for this match will be refunded via Skiddle.
With regard to future fixtures, the guidance is such that supporters who are resident within the Liverpool City Region Tier 3 area should not travel to matches taking place outside of the City Region. For clarification, the Liverpool City Region comprises the following council areas:
We are sorry that Saturday’s match will not take place and that supporters will no longer be able to travel to matches outside of the Liverpool City Region. However, public health and the wellbeing of each and every one of us is paramount and City of Liverpool FC will continue to work alongside local public health officials to ensure our community is as safe as possible during this crisis.
Thank you for you support and Up The Purps.
