Barrow AFC Chief Executive Levi Gill has appealed to all Bluebirds fans attending Saturday’s game to help their return run smoothly.

Saturday’s League Two game against Salford City will be run as a pilot event for the club to ensure more fans can attend under the current Covid-19 restrictions.


“There have been a lot of hours put in by a lot of people to make sure that Saturday can happen safely and that both staff and supporters are looked after properly,” said Gill.

“We will undertake a review of the event after Saturday in conjunction with the Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA), along with the match auditor who will be in attendance.

“Subject to it being deemed successful, we can look to increase our capacity to 1,506 for future games, which will allow us to accommodate Season Ticket holders and also make around 400 further tickets available for sale.

“We’re so excited to see supporters back on the terraces on Saturday and we now need to work together to ensure all safety protocols are followed which will allow more fans to come back in and enjoy the football with us in the near future.”

Saturday’s game will see season ticket holders welcomed back to Holker Street for the first time in nine months.

The game will represent the first time that Bluebirds fans have been able to be in the stands to see the team play in the EFL following their historic promotion from the National League last term.

Behind the scenes a lot of work has been going on to ensure a safe and secure environment for all in attendance this weekend and it is hoped that it is the first step to allowing more fans back in to cheer the team on.
