    To me he expects it not to take off and is saying it’s not RTE’s fault.
    To me he is looking for a reason to justify them pulling the plug on showing LOI live

    Have to say I find watching football on the telly with no fans as exciting as mass. It will be extremely interesting how our league fares out.

    Longford Town have set up its own gofund me page. Our supporters club is running it as all our fundraisers since the pandemic broke have being cancelled since and that was for the running of our club. The car boot sale was always a popular fundraiser and club are down considerably in revenue ie gate takings,Shop sales,programme sales,merchandise and also car boot sale.
    If any of the lads would like to support this we would be grateful. My younger brother who used to be a prominent foot.ie contributor pauro 7 is running it and has done a superb job. The site has only being set up 3 hours and we have raised 1.5k so far.

    Heres the link:

    I admire galway for that stance , it’s better to give a small number the opportunity to attend a game rather than not bother.

    So 147 essential people for a game? Seems high and thus 53 season ticket holders seems low. However based on the stream from Saturday people will still be able to see the game fine.

    Once you count it all up, you're not far off 150 people when scraping bare minimum really.

    Media/journalists, TV crews, photographers, medical/order of malta, players, coaching staff/various backroom team, club officials, stewards (which are still essential even without crowds), potentially ballboys/girls at some grounds.

    I went through a rough count of a normal enough match night in Finn Park and got to 130 pretty quickly, and there'd be bigger backroom teams at some other clubs.

    The numbers rack up quick enough alright. Then on top of the above is club volunteers, club directors etc ,sponsors who are entitled to first option on a ticket. I admire Galway for distributing their surplus tickets but its understandable why other clubs aren't in a position to.

    147 seems about right.

    The GAA in Celtic Park are working off a model of 120, excluding press. Slightly larger panels in GAA granted, but 147 seems about right for Galway.

    It's 53 ST holders, but are away fans getting an allocation?
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Sounds like we need 150 as we are only offering 50 season ticket holders entry. I presume no away fans will be permitted anywhere.

    The social distancing rules . The way the car boot sales work is there are stalls all on top of each other and people wander around browsing at it and buying. This would have a very strong impact on our fundraising as not too many people would attend as much and not as many would be willing to set up a stall. Thats my opinion on it.

    Even if you reduce the nos attending our car park in front of the ground where car boot sale does be held to say 200 ppl attending how can u control them with the carpark so open? Its the government regulations that is the big problem for us!

    I asked the question because I know how big of an area ye have, so my thinking was the more space you have, the more social-distance you would have too. The market in Galway has been open again for ages and it's a very narrow lane in town

    I just watched some of the IFA Cup semi final, surprised they had crowd noise during the game.

    Yeah its a tricky one as I asked one of the chief organisers that Q on our own whatsapp so have to take him at his word. Its strange that the Galway is open though or is it that they have more staff to regulate it I wonder?

    The market in Galway now has a one way system and is also split in two with half the stalls being hosted in the grounds of a school across the way. The city council do put people there to enforce the one way element.

    I don't know, I just drove by, didn't actually walk through it. I'd guess hand sanitizer at each stall and traders wearing masks. Probably a one-way system in place too
