Some supporters will be allowed to attend games but stadium capacities will be “significantly reduced from normal levels” and will depend on the design and layout of each ground.

The final match of the season will be on May 29, 2021 and the play-offs will begin in June.

In a letter to clubs, National League chief executive, Mike Tattersall, said: “In terms of crowd numbers, it is likely that ground capacities will be significantly reduced from normal levels. The ‘socially distanced’ capacity for each stadium will vary according to the design, layout and configuration of each ground, and will need to be assessed by each club in compliance with government guidance and in conjunction with their local authority.”
