Following confirmation from the UK Government that Lincolnshire will sit in Tier Three restrictions when the nationwide lockdown ends, we can confirm that we are not yet permitted to welcome supporters back to LNER Stadium for the time being.
Football clubs situated in Tier One and Tier Two areas are able to host matches with a limited number of spectators for the first time since March 2020, however those in Tier Three must continue to play behind closed doors.
Our CEO, Liam Scully said, “It is very disappointing news to Lincoln City, our fans and everyone associated with the club that we cannot welcome our unbelievable supporters back just yet, however, we respect the systems that have been put in place by the UK Government.
“We have repeatedly asked the Government for a road map for the return of fans to stadiums and whilst it’s disappointing that we are unable to benefit from this, it is heartening to see other clubs in Tier One and Tier Two being able to welcome fans back into their stadiums.
“We understand the next review will be in the middle of December and in the meantime, all at Lincoln City FC remain fully committed to working with the authorities to enable fans to return safely once permitted. We urge all of our supporters to stay safe and hope to welcome you back soon.”
