Oxford Utd v AFC Wimbledon due to be played at Thame, any idea whether fans are allowed or not?

I don't have a definitive answer but I saw something a couple of weeks ago about fans being admitted to FAYC matches, can't remember the detail but the gist of it was they could attend matches hosted by 'elite' clubs in the qualifying rounds only.

The context of the info I saw was to do with York City, and that their fans would have an unexpected chance to visit Bootham Crescent for one last time in their qualifying round match.

I'm going to Didcot v US Portsmouth tonight, 19:30, £3 adults, £1 concessions. Down to individual clubs I should imagine.

I don't know if the fact that Oxford United are classed as 'elite' will prevent spectators being allowed to attend, but it is worth noting that their female team attracted an official attendance of nearly 250 at Oxford City's ground yesterday.

We have arranged our Youth Cup game with Notts County for this Thursday, and is being held at Gainsborough, with admission of £5 adults, £3 concessions.

Altrincham's game against South Shields on Thursday will be behind closed doors, as was the home tie in the last round.
However, this is due to Trafford MBC, rather than anything in competition rules as the club hoped to admit fans but have prevented by the council. The Womens' team had earlier played a Wonens' FA Cup match in front of 160 at Moss Lane this season.

Chippenham have played theirs BCD.......in fact they have gone further in not actually mentioning the games until giving the result out post-match.

In the last round away to Odd Down neither club mentioned anything in the build up to the game, I assume that was deliberate.

Acknowledgement of the existence of Chippenham Town v Reading City has now been made.......but only to inform that the game has been postponed.
Someone probably sniffed in Berkshire.

If we have to play games BCD, then I suppose it makes sense not to mention them until after they have actually been played, to prevent spectators making a wasted journey.

The 'Metro' newspaper's Monday edition has been listing dozens of fixtures for the week ahead, including the Welsh Premier, without mentioning that they are all BCD.

Agree , although hoppers would still see fixtures like on here or the 'Metro' and turn up not knowing.

I asked the Manchester League Fixture Sec that question as I upkeep the Manchester League on here , should I mention or NOT the ones that are behind closed doors.
Not hearing to the contrary they are still on here and on the leagues media sites ( with add ons that they are behind closed doors on Full-Time ) , that luxury of an add on is not available on here .
Or is it ? Must ask that question.

That's as may be, but the Preliminary and Qualifying rounds of the FA Youth Cup are deemed to be "non elite". So, St Albans can have paying spectators in for the FA Youth Cup, but not the National League South or the FA Cup.

Wonder how Oxford United managed to set their FA Youth Cup fixture date (vs AFC Wimbledon) as Wednesday 11th November 2020?

Thought that all FA Youth Cup 1st Round Proper ties were meant to be played by Saturday 7th November 2020?

I attended the Guiseley V Emley game last month with no issues.
I know some clubs' local restrictions prevent spectators, Emley, for instance, as part of Kirklees' extra local restrictions, but as far as i am aware, there are no issues attending other clubs' home games

Oppo of mine attended Yeovil v Wimborne (3-4) FA Youth cup tie during the week with no problem. Evidently clubs are operating a ‘different strokes for different folks’ policy, which doesn’t particularly help anyone!
