Think at this level and below the vast majority if not all fans regard the need of their club as being bigger than theirs.
A more concerning issue may be club sponsors who haven't got what they paid for. Again at this level, I think most club sponsors would be likely to let the matter go.
Not sure about headline sponsors like Vanaram
I worry for clubs in general next season because I think season ticket sales will be poor as people will say they paid this season and most did not get to see any games at all and therefore they won't buy next year until it is clear whether they will get to see their teams.
Even if fans are allowed back in next season, i can see capacities being greatly reduced, so again people are not going to be happy to buy a season ticket but potentially only get into 1/2 or 1/3 of games.
As you say for clubs like Darlington, the BTB will face a threat. For clubs relying on a benefactor- again funding may be a lot less available
I also think for all clubs commercial sponsorship will be harder to obtain as businesses struggle to stay alive
