I guess the club will now send out the season tickets (new swipe cards) to us holders now in readiness of a return to grounds.
I take it no-one else has received there's so far?

So the way I read the new rules that apply to us is 50% of capacity or 2000 whichever is the lower.
Season Ticket holders first I would imagine in our case. Travel in general will still be subject to local restrictions-not sure how that will work, maybe Home fans only in many cases.
Also subject to Tier restrictions are pubs and bars, remaining shut in Tier 3, Tier 2 can open if serving substantial meals. Once again how that applies to Sports Venues, I am not sure. Someone help me out here as I am still confused - from Thurrock. Will know more on Thursday.
What I DO know is that my booked birthday meal on Dec 2nd is cancelled but my partner’s booked birthday meal on Dec 3rd should go ahead. Damn clever this virus, 😥🎉

It's not clear yet how big the areas to which the various tiers will be applied. If the ground falls under very high no fans. If high up to 2000. I can't see it being medium risk.

Would this affect our streaming service or is that fixed for the whole season?

I think they said if fans were allowed back, it would end and a pro-rata refund would be made. It'd be a shame though. There will be plenty who won't feel comfortable attending so I hope they can continue it.

Any guesses on what Tier Dagenham will be placed in? Tier 2 or 3 I presume. Thurrock where I live was Tier 1, general opinion is that we will go up to Tier 2.
Cold, wet winter creeping up when attendances in normal times drop off a bit. Would the club be better off in Tier 3 having No Fans but presumably keeping £84k a month? I want what’s best for the club but at the same time it would be great to get back in the ground.

The same article mentions season ticket will be contacted directly. I hope they'll post out the new season ticket swipe card asap in readiness for next Wednesday!

So disappointing to hear that the next home match on Wednesday will NOT have a crowd. Couldn't quite understand the reason why but it is SO disappointing. It seems that somebody somewhere is not getting their finger out.

No next Wednesday Makes me wonder if that’s due to the season tickets not being sent out yet! The test event against Concord Rangers went well and an unprepared ground doesn’t sound right., disappointing as I’d already made the necessary arrangements to attend

The DCMS, FA and National League need to finalise the measures required. They may have changed since October. Not sure if the local council also get a say.
