Rejected petition Let sports fans back into sports venues in Wales at all levels.

I want to go back to the football.

More details

Barbers are allowed to open which is indoors and this is by no means necessary. However, the positive affects on mental health that sports can have would be beneficial especially with sports grounds such as football grounds being outside meaning that with social distancing and masks football grounds will be more safe than a hairdressers/barbers. This would also provide a huge boost to the economy as ticket sales would rise massively contributing tax towards the senedd.

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.

The Petitions Committee is already considering petitions on this issue:

Allow fans to attend sporting events in Wales

Allow Welsh domestic football clubs to play friendlies and allow supporters to attend matches

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
