Ferguson’s only regret for an astonishing return to the championship in May, after an exciting comeback against promotion rivals Lincoln City, was the absence of fans inside the stadium due to Covid restrictions.
Yesterday (July 5), British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the end of capacity restrictions on football pitches from July 19. Posh will play his first home game after that date on Tuesday August 10 in a Carabao Cup match against Plymouth Argyle.
“It was great celebrating with the fans off the field when we got the promotion,” said Ferguson. “But it wasn’t the same as doing it in front of a crowded stadium.
“It feels like the players weren’t given due recognition for what they accomplished under the most difficult circumstances last season. We can fix it in our next home game.
“With 60,000 people scheduled to attend the Euro final at Wembley, the end of restrictions on all courts was predictable, but it’s always welcome.
“This is great news for the club, the players and of course the fans.”
