Unfortunately not, the game is now sold out.

I have renewed my Season Ticket, what do I do?

2021 Season Ticket holders can attend by coming to the ground with your 2020 card which will have been reactivated and will be scanned into the part of the ground you wish to be in. Please note when one section is full it will be closed, the access times of each stand are listed in the next question.

Where do I enter for each stand?

To reduce the number of touchpoints we will be admitting fans via entry points which will have multiple lanes and be socially distanced.

For Princess Street and Railway End entry, the entry points are on Princess Street, with e-ticket holders needing to go along to Gate 9 – whilst fans wanting to be in the Princess Street stand can use the first entry point on Princess Street - Gate 7.

The Wheldon Road End’s entry point including the open-air terrace between the Wheldon Road End and Main Stand is the Arthur Atkinson gates by our stadium store on Wheldon Road.

The Main Stand, Family Zone, and corporate guests entrance is at the back of the Main Stand by training ground, and our disabled gate remains the same.

Can I move around the ground to different stands?

No, unfortunately, we have had to segregate the stands for this fixture.

Can I park at the ground?

No, we apologise for any inconvenience but parking is only for those who have already been pre-booked and pass holders for this match, supporters cannot pre-book at this stage.

I have an e-ticket what do I do?

Follow the instructions on the bottom of your e-ticket, you can either print it out or show it on your phone to be scanned by our stewarding team.

What time should I arrive?

Season Ticket holders we ask to arrive as early as possible to avoid queues, making use of the access times for the stand you wish to enter.

E-ticket holders have their expected time of arrival on their tickets.

  • Main Stand - The Bottle Bar at the bottom of the stairs of entry to that stand
  • Railway End - Supporters' Bar near the scoreboard
  • Princess Street Stand - The Monkey Munch bar at the back and middle of the stand.

Supporters are welcome to bring food and soft drinks into the ground, however, please put food into a carrier bag so the stewards can quickly look inside. Drinks MUST be in a sealed plastic bottle, no glasses or cans, and you are NOT permitted to bring alcohol into the ground.

Any supporter who attempts to bring in alcohol, glass bottles, or cans will have their items confiscated from our stewarding team.
