    Murrayfield to be around 25% full at the end of next month for a British and Irish Lions warm-up match v Japan.

    I'm looking forward to at least 5,000 being able to attend the friendly v Arsenal in July.

    Hopefully we get more than 5000, things will have moved on even more by then.
    Every gimmick hungry yob,
    Digging gold from rock and roll
    Grabs the mic to tell us,
    He'll die before he's sold.

    Notice that the marketing guy that was on the podcast here, Greg McEwan, is now interim chief exec. When did that happen?

    Looks like this will be the case - Hibs will be applying to the council for up to 5,000 fans to attend the Arsenal game on the basis of 2 metre distancing being required.

    However Hibs are hoping 1.5 metre distancing (which will be in place at Hampden for the Euros) will be possible and they would then ask the Scottish Government for up to 7,500 people to attend the match.

    Do people have to distance from people in their own household at the football? I presume they do?

    Good on Hibs - itís a start.

    Not perfect but Scottish football should be aiming to get a decent amount of fans into stadiums for the start of the season.

    The problem in a seated ground is that it is easy to set out seats to use/not use when assuming all spectators are separate individuals. But as soon as you start to allow for household groups then your seating plan is complicated and necessarily needs a dynamic element at the point of booking. That is perhaps possible to achieve - it being a complicated version of booking seats in a theatre where the booking program is set to prevent single seats to be left. But I doubt the protocols will trust the spectators to simply sit in their resulting booked seats, so for each match a different layout of blocked seats would potentially be needed. So I’m expecting that initially they will go for the Elvis approach* to all seats. Is this not the euros approach?
