THE Halliwell Jones Stadium is gearing up to stage matches behind closed doors when Super League resumes.

Clubs are set to meet again today, Friday, to discuss how the season will look when it restarts, probably in August.

Games are likely, at least initially, to be staged behind closed doors. And some rounds made be staged entirely at one venue.

A Grand Final could take place in late November or early December, depending on how many matches will make up the season.

Wolves chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick said: “Things have picked up pace and we are hopefully in a position to make an announcement soon on how games will resume.

“We are aware some of those games will be behind closed doors. We have put forward an application to house some of those events.

“We want to be one of those venues and as a rugby league stadium, hopefully we will be selected.”

But Fitzpatrick says he is still hopeful of getting fans through the turnstiles later in the year, as a reward for members.

He added: “The response and patience of our supporters has been very humbling.

“We had a fan's forum last week and they want to do whatever they can to support the club and ensure we negotiate this difficult time.

“We hope to have a reduced capacity and are working up a plan that would allow all our season ticket holders to see games, which is just short of 7,000.

“Hopefully relaxing the two-metre rule will help.”

Clubs are hopefully of having games with fans in late September of October.

Fixtures are likely to be 'back loaded' so that as many matches as possible could include supporters.

The French government has announced sport can be played in front of crowds of 5,000 from July which could see Catalans still play at home later in the season.
