Could the club open the function rooms and sell tickets to show the games on a big screen with table service drinks being served? They might not be able to do it for home games but could they do it for away games to make a few quid?

Sounds too reasonable, which makes a mockery of not allowing football fans in to games all together.

 

Meanwhile, people cram in to pubs to get pissed as we celebrate our victory over Covid19 as restrictions have been watered down to nothing, and are not policed anyway.

That's a good idea.

 

Probably not allowed for some reason due to rights etc.

But if pubs can open, why not?

Great idea.

 

Can't see how it breaks any rules big done properly unless the IFollow contract forbids it.

 

If it's ST Holders only to start with I can't see that being an issue.

SAG would disallow it and quote that there are not enough beer mats or summat(whatever excuse they could come up with) 

as they try to prove it would be against health and safety

You cannot have meetings or gatherings of more than 30 people and cannot have live entertainment.

I presume its not Wetherspoons

 

WETHERSPOONS has confirmed that it won't be screening any live sports in pubs when they reopen on Saturday.

While the government's Covid-19 secure guidelines doesn't ban pubs and restaurants from broadcasting live games, it does ask businesses not putting on any entertainment that "may encourage shouting".

I'll do a bit of 'virtual' advance shouting seeing as it's Preston. Can't imagine it will be anything different to normal.

 

"Fu*k off Pearson you cheating, diving tw*t".

 

"Fuc*in stand up you Cheating Bast**ds".

 

"Get a grip ref, it's every fuc*n year".

 

" Come on Wednesday, give em some back, stop being so fuc*in soft".

 

"Ahh for Christ's sake, it was never a free kick"

 

"Nice one ref, cost us the fuc**n match       again".

 

etc etc etc.

Sounds like a good idea. Trouble is Chansiri would charge around £150 each for the privilege. Otherwise he'd just say it won't make money, like the executive boxes that he charges a second mortgage for.

In addition, all venues should ensure that steps are taken to avoid people needing to unduly raise their voices to each other. This includes, but is not limited to, refraining from playing music or broadcasts that may encourage shouting, including if played at a volume that makes normal conversation difficult." 

 

This means that whilst there is no prohibition on showing football matches per se; the obligation has been put on operators to ensure that broadcasts (which would include showing the football) do not encourage shouting, as well as the new restrictions, set out below.

 

Therefore if you are showing football matches you will be required to demonstrate an element of control over customer behaviour. As such, showing football will require risk assessing as part of your overall re-opening risk assessment.

 

Beer and football with no raised voices, good luck with that. Seems impossible to me. Maybe the government have not thought this through properly, how unusual.......

If its Ifollow then it’s illegal (apparently)... Just don’t create an event on Facebook in order to keep the snitches away.

 

Id be fully behind it, but it be down to the decisions of the individuals running the pubs.
