The Clarets Trust Board is disheartened to see that the majority of the North West of England is to be placed in Tier 3.
This means that attendance at Burnley matches at Turf Moor cannot be allowed whilst clubs in other tiers can begin to admit some fans.
This is unfair and we advocate that the system must be the same for all Premier League Clubs.
Fans in the North West have had life under Covid restrictions for longer than anywhere else in the country.
If teams in this area cannot admit fans then no one should be able to do so..
An equal and fair system is the best way to protect football and all fans.
To admit fans to some clubs would give those clubs an unfair advantage – and this MUST NOT be allowed to happen.
