COVID-19

The information on this page is relevant for matches at the club where spectators are permitted to attend. On 2nd October 2020, the club agreed to a request from Knowsley Council to play home matches ‘behind closed doors’ during a period of increased infection rates locally.

Prescot Cables Football Club CIC is committed to providing a safe environment for all, whether that is players, coaches and match officials on the pitch, spectators (when conditions allow) or users of the IP Truck Parts Stadium and its various facilities, such as the Function Room. This page will set out the club’s policies, risk assessments and facility management plans and, as such, the information displayed here will change as required.

Matchday Protocol

As of 09/09/20, the following matchday protocol is in place.

The club is able to admit a maximum of 400 spectators per home match, in accordance with the current FA Guidance. In order to manage ticket demand fairly, all home matches are all-ticket. Tickets must be purchased in advance via the club website.

The number of spectators admitted to non-First Team matches may be lower than the current maximum capacity.

Personal data collected as part of the ticket-buying process will be processed in accordance with the regulations pertaining to ‘Track and Trace’ and in accordance with the club’s Privacy Policy. ALL ticket holders are required to provide their name, email address and telephone number.

The Main Stand is operating at a reduced capacity. The terracing around the dugouts is closed.

The Function Room is also closed, although there will be a small selection of beverages available from a temporary Bottle Bar.

The majority of the terracing (except the area described above) remains open for socially distanced groups of six people or less. To assist with movement around the ground and social distancing, there will be a one-way system in place. Failiure to adhere to this may result in removal from the ground.
