A Westminster Hall debate on e-petition 552036, relating to spectator attendance at football matches during Covid-19, is scheduled for Monday 9 November 2020 at 4.30 pm. The debate will be opened by Jonathan Gullis MP.
The text of the petition reads:
Allow football fans to attend matches at all levels
Football is a powerful tool of which allows a range of benefits such as employment, and other important aspects of life. Football can be associated with passion, emotion, excitement and dedication across the community. With Fans attending football games a range of economic benefits are there too.
Due to the current issues around COVID places such as France and Germany now allow a percentage of fans to return to football games. I ask for the support of this petition as I fear that smaller clubs in particular will go out of business leading to a devastating effect on people. This petition is to ask the government to reconsider their judgement on not letting football fans back into the stadiums and reconsider doing this with the right safety measures in place surrounding the COVID-19.
