Today's newspaper is saying Cardiff expected to remain a hospital until April next year. The Welsh Rugby Union are looking for alternative venues for this year's Autumn Internationals and next year's Six Nations.

Yes does not look good to say the least about any speedway this year.

Hopefully get a refund on tickets but hotel another matter :neutral:

Also spare a thought for the poor travel companies that are left with dozens of empty hotel rooms they are now stuck with !

Yes, possibly still have some social distancing in place, a person in the media , i think it was sky or BT said it would be nearly two years before the Arsenal ground was full to capacity again.

Martin Smolinski said in the Star this week that he does not think that we will see any speedway this year.

 

Doom and gloom!!;)

Arsenal's ground hasn't been full for many years.   Wenger managed to have it half empty in his latter years :D

How does a presenter on BT know what no one else does.   Its BS not BT.    There are 101 questions to be answered on coronavirus.  Can we catch it twice, when will a vaccine be found, we don't even know the UK exit plan yet.   No one knows.   Anyone listening to rumours needs to think twice.

You will find out next week if Cardiff will go ahead as Boris will be announcing his exit plan.   Ireland have banned crowds at sport events until August 10th and even then its with strict social distancing rules.    Just my opinion but it must be doubtful the UK would be any sooner.

Rumour is BS and you can't be sure who the person was on BT.     Enough said.

Giving the current situation anyone buying SGP tickets, booking hotels and flights needs to be medicated IMO. Best case scenario is that we get six rounds all in Poland, possibly with an empty stadium.

No chance of any GP`s if empty stadiums requirements are still in force.
