Ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League Two fixture against Leyton Orient at the Mem, here is all the essential information for fans attending the game....
Match Ticket Sales
We advise supporters to purchase tickets at the earliest possible opportunity to minimise queues on a match day. Tickets are from the matchday ticket office and can be purchased online store up until kick-off.
Print at Home tickets are the easiest way of securing your match ticket. When purchasing via this method you will receive a printable PDF, which when printed becomes your match tickets. Print at home tickets are available until kick-off.
Print at home tickets should be printed prior to arrival at the ground, however, these can also be scanned from a smartphone, but the success of this depends on things like screen quality, cracks, brightness, size on screen etc. Our team will be on hand to assist with any issues with Print at Home tickets that occur at the turnstiles.
To avoid queues, we advise supporters to proceed through the turnstiles in good time ahead of kick-off.
The matchday ticket office will be open from 10am on Saturday.
Some supporters may have noticed that unfortunately, we are no longer able to permit supporters to stand on the front section of the Terrace. This change is due to an EFL regulation now enforced by our Safety Advisory Group which now means that no standing is permitted at the front gangway of the Thatchers Terrace. We know this is disappointing for many supporters and we have urged our stewards to deal with this situation delicately on the day of the game. This change has had a negative impact on the overall capacity of the stand. More on this can be read HERE and plans on the process moving forward.
In the interest of supporter safety, anyone who witnesses jumping or shoving in the vicinity of the ground will be ejected, due to the safety risk attributed to such behaviour.
The Pirate will run as a 32-page edition for league games this season, priced at £2.50. These will be available to purchase at positions around the ground and can also be purchased in the club shop.
Bar and Kiosks
We are advising supporters to use cashless payments as much as possible - with card terminals now in place at the stadium's bars and refreshment outlets.
The Thatchers Bar will be open at 11am, alongside Irene's Kitchen, with the Butcombe Bar opening at 1:30pm.
The Superstore at the Mem will be open from 10am. Head to the store to grab your replica shirts, training wear and a whole range of Rovers themed merchandise.
50:50 tickets will be on sale around the stadium footprint. The proceeds from the 50:50 tickets go towards the Academy, helping the next generation of players coming through the youth ranks. Look out for the winning draw numbers at half-time.
