Chester FC are very sad to have to announce the following; particularly as we are aware of the impact it will have on the Blues fans who were looking forward to the start of the season tomorrow.
More details to follow in due course.
Below is a joint statement from The National League, Solihull Moors and Chester FC.
Further to a decision of the home club’s local safety authority, it has been necessary for the opening day fixture match between Solihull Moors and Chester to be postponed.
The Solihull Safety Advisory Group, who oversee the licensing of the stadium, has clarified that spectators cannot be admitted to the ground until such time as required safety systems are in place.
Arrangements are in hand to urgently deal with this matter, but it is felt the only appropriate decision available to The National League is to postpone the fixture and rearrange it for later in the season.
