Solihull Moors chairman Darryl Eales says that playing out the final few months of the season behind closed doors will cost the club an extra £450,000.
Speaking in his programme notes ahead of Saturday’s National League match with Barnet, Eales explains: “Fans will have seen the ongoing debate about continuation or postponement of the current season. The club, with the fantastic support of our shareholders, is firmly on the camp of completing the season, even if much needed and expected government support is not forthcoming.
“Completing the season behind closed doors and under lockdown will cost the club an additional £450k between January and June. This is the reality of the size of the financial burden being placed on us by the current circumstances.”
He goes on to add: “We are launching an ambitious and exciting plan to raise £1m by June to build a new community and education hub at the ground. The building will be a purpose-designed two-storey c2000 square metre community and education centre within the footprint of the football stadium.”
