EFL Statement – Macclesfield Town vs. Grimsby Town

Our away tie at Macclesfield Town will go ahead as scheduled on Boxing Day, with a 3pm kick-off.

On Thursday last week, the Club was served a zero capacity notice by the local Safety Advisory Group (SAG) and as a result of this, its fixture against Plymouth Argyle did not take place on Saturday 21 December.

Following the postponement the Club, with assistance from the EFL, has continued to work to find a solution to ensure the fulfilment of further fixtures, and the SAG is now satisfied that the requirements of the Safety Certificate have been met.

The club received a 6 point deduction on Thursday after pleading guilty to charges of non-payment of wages and failure to fulfil its fixture obligations.  A further four points were suspended as a result of the charges.

The club will now face a further charge for failing to fulfil its fixture with Plymouth Argyle. That game has now been rearranged for Tuesday 18 February 2020 at 7.45pm.
