Sheffield have laid out plans for the return of owners and patrons to the stadium.
In a press release to the owners, GM Matt Hamilton writes:
“Whilst the gates to Owlerton open wide from the 18th May for our lovely customers, we will see owners returning much sooner from the 12th April!
It feels like a lifetime since owners and customers graced the terraces but there isn’t long now and were certainly chomping at the bit to see some normality.
We can’t thank you all enough for your patience and we would like to extend our gratitude to all the Owners who have stuck it out and remained loyal to their hounds!
We have worked hard with the local authority to see this come to fruition and we are pleased to say that as of 12th April you can once again come and watch your beloved greyhound do what it was born to do at the track!
There will of course be safety measures in place as there were last time and stringent checks to ensure we’re doing our part in seeing a return to normality coupled with the preservation of safety and wellbeing. It will be essential you call our bookings team at least 24 hours in advance to guarantee your spot trackside, we can’t allow walk-ins just yet we’re afraid. Please note there will be no food or drink outlets open until the 18th of May.
Once again, thank you to our customers, please bear with us a little longer, not long now! Also, a massive thank you to our Owners who have been so supportive and patient this past year, see you in a few weeks!”
