Tamworth Add Yeltz Friendly And What New Tiers Could Mean For Fans

With the second lockdown ending a week today, and football set to begin again, Tamworth have added a warm-up game with Halesowen Town.

The Lambs will face Town on Saturday 5 December, with competitive action starting three days later against Royston Town in the FA Trophy.

Whether fans will be allowed in the stadium or not remains to be seen, a decision is likely to be made by the government this Thursday.

Tamworth’s league campaign gets back underway on Saturday 12 December with a trip to Redditch United.

How many fans will be allowed back in?

This all depends on what tier Tamworth is put in from December 3.

Tamworth started in the lowest tier due to being ‘Medium Risk’ but were raised into Tier 2, inline with the rest of Staffordshire on October 31.

According to the Southern League website, the Lamb has a capacity of 4,565. This means the following:

Tamworth in Tier 1 – Maximum allowed is 2,283

Tamworth in Tier 2 – Maxiumum allowed is 2,000

Tamworth in Tier 3 – No fans allowed.

Tamworth’s home attendances so far this season in league games is 439, with the biggest crowd coming against Biggleswade in late October.
