Club statement: Pilot fixtures

15 September 2020

Shrewsbury Town submit an application for reduced capacity pilot fixture clearance.

Shrewsbury Town have been informed today around 11.30am that EFL clubs are able to apply to stage a limited number of pilot events with a maximum capacity of 1,000 supporters at league matches played this weekend (September 19/20) subject to application and selection. 

Shrewsbury Town can confirm that despite the very limited notice an application has been lodged to the EFL to request to be considered for a pilot fixture ahead of Town's first home Sky Bet League One fixture with Northampton Town.

With 24 acres of COVID-Safe space, Shrewsbury Town is hopeful that with protocols in place, in accordance with EFL guidance, we can be selected for a pilot to deliver safe and socially distant football to a small number of fans at Montgomery Waters Meadow. 

Further information will be provided in due course once we know whether our application has been accepted which we hope will be a very quick decision with such an already limited time frame.
