Yeovil Town chairman Scott Priestnall has said that the club’s lost revenues from no supporters at games will be around £1.3m.

Priestnall was giving an update to supporters, with the Glovers’ 2020/21 National League season set to get underway this weekend, seemingly behind closed doors.

Within the update, Priestnall said: “There is no doubt that football matches without supporters is financial unviable, not just at our level but I would think throughout the whole football pyramid. We as a club are no different, and without supporters, we will not be able to operate our business.

“Our lost revenues will be circa £1.3m. To this end, the government have said they will look to provide a financial support package specifically for clubs in the National League System.

“We eagerly await a proposal, which I know key personnel on the National League board are working hard towards.”
