Football close to restarting at Victoria Park

Football is close to restarting at Victoria Park as the Vale continue their pre season preparations. 

The club have been working hard to ensure compliance with the SFA Return to Football Protocols and Scottish Government guidance, including carrying out a full risk assessment on Victoria Park and producing Match Day protocols and guidance. 

Subject to approval from authorities, the Vale hope to have their first pre season friendly match on Saturday 12 September against West Linton amateur side Linton Hotspur. It will be behind closed doors match with no supporters allowed at this stage. 

Vice Chairman and COVID Officer, John Anderson, “Everyone is looking forward to getting football playing again at Victoria Park, albeit without fans. The club have worked hard to ensure we meet government and SFA requirements and create a safe environment for players. Hopefully this is the start of the journey towards having fans back at football.”
