Southampton fans are far from happy with the news that their city has been placed in Tier 2 under the government’s latest restrictions.
The government has decided to place different parts of the country under different restrictions, and that will have an effect on the Saints and the rest of the Premier League. It was recently revealed by Boris Johnson that clubs in Tier 1 regions will be able to have 4,000 fans at their stadiums, whilst those in Tier 2 will be able to have 2,000.
That does mean that some supporters will be allowed to attend matches at St. Mary’s Stadium, but it seems that many Southampton fans are far from happy with this latest news – they believe that the current regulation is too hard.
Do you agree with being in Tier 2?
They took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.

So we’re in tier 1 before lockdown, then coming out of it we’re in tier 2?

I’m broadly understanding of CV19 restrictions, but Government have just got themselves in a mess. Southampton enter full lockdown in Tier 1, but then exit in Tier 2.. hardly gives the message that lockdown works?

Southampton being in tier 2 is an absolute joke.
25 confirmed cases yesterday.

Theres rarely anything going on in Southampton and Brighton?? Why are we in tier 2 all of a sudden

Cases are considerably below the country average. It’s almost as if they planned for most of the country to be in tier 2 minimum, regardless

Southampton locked down when we were in Tier 1 but now we are Tier 2 🤔

In other news, this Saints man has been tipped to depart the club.
