Will the southern clubs still be able to water their pitches?
oh yeah never thought of that..
They will just have to buy a load of watering cans instead.
The ban only applies to domestic rates and not business rates. So they will be ok to use hosepipes
Doesnt apply to businesses, so they will be fine...
If you have drink of water through your hosepipe instead of your tap, will you get fined?
If some (unt photographs you doing it, yep!!
The local golf club and cricket club been told they cant. So don't see why the football clubs would be treated any different.
Can just imagine fans armed with watering can to keep the match on

The Olympics will not be affected as, like most suppliers, Thames Water has exempted hosepipe use on grass and artificial surfaces - as long as they are used for national or international sport events.
Thames has gone further than the other water companies by specifying sporting events and facilities including the Olympics and Paralympics, Wimbledon tennis club and professional football clubs including Arsenal and AFC Wimbledon.
However, the temporary use ban legislation means that all the capital's usually flowing fountains will be stilled during the Olympics and Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Exemptions, which are decided by individual water companies, are broadly similar in each area but customers should check the website of their supplier as there are some differences.
For example, Sutton and East Surrey Water allows for hosepipes to be used on all areas of grass used for sport or recreation.
Common exemptions include where a hosepipe is used to clean cars, windows or outdoor surfaces - this covers car washing businesses and window cleaners.
There are also exemptions for blue badge holders and for the use of a hosepipe for cleaning in some situations where health and safety is an issue.
And some garden drip irrigation systems, which use lengths of perforated hose, are also exempted.
Plenty water up here. We should sell to the bastards at £1.47 a litre...
Too cheap joe. They are all getting paid more than us for doing the same jobs as living costs are higher remember:roll:
Because one is a shitty golf club and the other is watched by tens of thousands of people.
Charge the cockney twats for water what they charge us for beer when we gan down there
does not bother me, i already have a hosepipe. bought it ages ago
they will have a commercial license no?
There's a lot more money in professional football.
Thankfully we don't have one, a ban that is, not a hose pipe. We got three of them - one for the back, one the front and one on the north side of the house. How would we be able to keep our pool topped up if the sun is nicking the water all the time?
Golf courses use too much water and they should ban them from using any.
