Posted on: 11 December 2020

Devon, Somerset and Torbay Trading Standards Service is pleased to announce it has issued an Amended General Safety Certificate to Exeter Chiefs to allow their home fixtures to take place with the limited return of spectators in line with England’s tiered Coronavirus restrictions.

The Certificate is issued under the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975 and follows advice from the Safety Advisory Group for the ground and amended Operational Plans which detail the precautions to be taken to mitigate the risk of coronavirus transmission and restricts the people allowed to attend. A match will take place on Sunday 13th December and following review, a greater capacity may be permitted at future fixtures, within the applicable Tier restrictions.

The Certificate can be inspected by contacting Trading Standards at or phoning the MyDevon call centre on 0345 155 1015.
