Brighton & Hove Albion Lead The Way Paying Match Day Staff

Brighton & Hove Albion FC are the first to announce that they will pay match day staff for the matches missed due to the outbreak of Covid-19. This marks a fantastic sea change in an industry whose match delivery is totally dependent upon people with the “you-don’t-work-and-you-don’t-get-paid” contracts prevalent in the football safety industry.

A lot of matchday staff and others who work on non-matchdays depend on these payments to make their financial ends meet, so this is a fantastic initiative from the Premier League Club. It was picked up by Paul Hayward, Chief Sports Writer with the Telegraph and circulated on his twitter feed. Paul is a well-respected journalist and regularly appears on “Sunday Supplement” on Sky Sports. The link is below…Maybe other football clubs can make the same decision?
