Wycombe Wanderers, along with the EFL, are encouraging supporters to stay away and tune in to the forthcoming play-off matches at home on television, due to the strict guidelines which will prevent any fans from attending games in person.
The EFL have a proud history of developing innovative new ways to attract supporters through the turnstiles, but the message has been reversed in line with football’s return on a behind closed doors basis with the safety of fans, club personnel and the frontline services the principle priority.
Supporters are now being asked to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid congregating outside stadiums as part of a new campaign message: ‘When we play, please stay away’ ahead of EFL matches returning for the first time since March on a behind closed doors basis.
No access will be granted through the Adams Park gates at any point from 3rd July until 7th July except for accredited personnel. Provisions will also be in place to prevent supporters from attempting to watch the match from the banks outside the stadium perimeter. Anyone found to be jeopardising these protocols may be subject to a stadium ban in future.
Regretfully, health and safety protocols require that Adams Park remains free from non-essential visitors for the duration of the play-off semi-final weekend and therefore it will not be possible to host a live drive-in screening of either fixture on the stadium grounds.
