Fans to return as Bangor 1876 vs Colwyn Bay friendly chosen for Covid test event

North Wales news and information

Football fans are set to return to the stands in North Wales following the announcement of the first Covid test event.

On Monday, the FAW released information in relation to the return of spectators following the Welsh Government announcement that Covid-19 restrictions are to be eased for regulated outdoor events.

The return of spectators to adult matches outdoors will be phased following the completion of several FAW test events over the next fortnight.

This is designed to test the FAW’s return of spectators protocols so that all clubs will soon be able to welcome fans back to their grounds and comply with the Welsh Government regulations.

The first of these test events will take place on Saturday, 12 June as Bangor 1876 take on Colwyn Bay in a friendly match at Treborth.

The maximum number of spectators for this event will be 100 and the club will operate a ticket only policy.

Bangor officials said: “The club is greatly honoured to be chosen by the Association as a pathfinder and wishes to thank Andrew Howard and other officials of the FAW, together with our partners, Bangor University, for their assistance in making the return of fans possible.

“Unfortunately, there will be a limit of 100 on the number allowed into the ground.

“As a result entry will be by ticket only, price £5, on a first come first served basis.

“These will be available, to fully paid-up members only, from 10.00am on Thursday 10 June 2021 from the club website where you should click the “shop” option.”
