Solihull Moors ground concerns force postponement of opening game of the season

Solihull Moors will have to wait to kick off their National League season after the opening game against Chester was postponed.

The game was cancelled over ground concerns at the Automated Technology Group Stadium.

A statement from the National League said: “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.”

The club said it would not comment further on the nature of the issues.
