To explain why fans can’t watch the West Ham match against Manchester City on the ground-when they can watch it in a nearby movie theater, David has called on the government.
On Saturday a lunchtime kick-off will be shown by the Vue Cinema at Stratford’s Westfield Shopping Centre, a 10-minute walk from London Stadium.
Fans can watch the match with members of their household or support bubble at a cost of £6.99, in line with the Government guidance on coronavirus.
But, like many others, West Ham manager Moyes is baffled as to why people can gather indoors to see the game, but not outdoors in a 60,000-capacity stadium.
“Firstly the best I can do is the leave the government, the people who know the best and are speaking to all the advisors, to that because I’m certainly not an expert on a pandemic,” said Moyes on SkySports.
“But I watched the European games this week and have seen crowds back in different countries, and it’s hard to believe we can’t do that.”
“I don’t think any of us want 500 or 1,000 people back on the grounds, we need a good percentage of capacity – 25 or 30 percent. Why can those countries be doing it and not us?”
“Are we so much worse than the others? Again, it’s probably not my bag but I feel it’s not right.”
“And people going to watch a game in a cinema, close to here, why can we not be sitting outside in the open air doing it?”
