Given that the Palladium is indoors - a de facto more dangerous place for the spread of viruses - can anyone explain why a similar, or even higher, density crowd with these restrictions should not be allowed to attend an outdoor sports fixture?


It was a government sanctioned trial event, hopefully nobody who went tests positive in the near future. A successful trial should enable more trials to take place, as you say an indoor event is a much greater risk than an outdoor one, so outdoor sporting fixtures will be more likely to be given permission.

Worcester have announced that they’ll be live streaming our game for their STHs. Which suggests that it might not be on BT Sport? I have no idea if we will be able to access the live stream, however, the way it was worded suggests that it will be free only for their STHs.

If that's the case at Wuss, why can't the same be done for our STHs?

At the moment what incentive is there to buy as season ticket?
Come on Gloucester Rugby give me some idea of what l can expect.

I suspect the club probably doesn't know as its not them making the decisions about if/when fans will be allowed into the ground and what requirements will be need in regard to social distancing. We have seen with schools making preparation for 2m social distancing only to have the rules changed and so given that we have 20 days until rugby starts in any form and we are months away from fans in the ground we will have to wait and see.

It's unfair to expect the club to know what the situation will be when we restart seeing things can change so quickly as we saw with travel to Spain, the new normal is we will need to wait & have to be flexible

Perhaps they could offer their STH what Worcester seem to be offering theirs, free streaming of live games. Just a thought.

I’ve not seen that Warriors announcement anywhere? Like many I’ve a ticket been sat on the mantelpiece for months....gonna have to get in touch. It would be good to get access instead if money back.

Also there’s a great tweet from WW...https://twitter.com/tatianafats/status/1284162739150168070?s=21
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Here’s the link KPB, however, I’ve just read the page again and interestingly Wuss have now removed all mention of a livestream and how to access it. The page does detail how to receive refunds though.

Won't any decision on which matches clubs live stream have to wait until BT Sport decide which matches they're going to show? I haven't seen any announcement of that yet.
