Ahead of the important fixture with Scunthorpe this weekend, we would like to provide a number of reminders for supporters prior to the game.
Firstly, we are aware of concern amongst fans that tickets were purchased with a view to being sold on for a profit. The club will be monitoring social media sites and anyone selling tickets on these will have the tickets cancelled with no refunds issued. All supporters are reminded that tickets are non-transferable and it is a criminal offence to sell tickets on. Those found to be doing so may be prosecuted.
Given the match is sold out, if there are any season ticket holders that are unable to attend the game, please let us know. In these scenarios, we are able to cancel your tickets and make them available for supporters to purchase.
Any supporters without tickets will not be permitted onto the site. Random ticket checks will take place. Supporters with tickets for the South section of the East Terrace will need to gain access to the stadium via turnstiles 24-46 and are to exit the stadium next to the Club Shop.
We’d encourage all supporters to arrive at the stadium as early as possible as additional searching regimes will be in place prior to entry. We expect the Thatchers Bar to reach full capacity so we’d advise all supporters to arrive early if you are planning on using that space. Once we reach capacity, no further entry will be permitted.
Those supporters with car parking are encouraged to arrive as early as possible to secure their space. Access to the car park will not be permitted after 2.30pm as we are expecting congestion with vehicles and pedestrian traffic due to the scale of the fixture.
Any supporters attending the match and wishing to make use of the Fanzone pre-match are not permitted to bring any alcohol onto the site or any bottles or cans. There will be additional checks prior to entry and any items brought onto the site will be confiscated. There will be additional bars installed in the Fanzone to help meet demand.
Supporters are reminded that anti-social behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated. Every supporter in a seated area must sit in their allocated seat as every area is sold out. Supporters in a terrace area must remain in the area where their ticket is purchased.
Supporters are not permitted to stand in any stairways at the stadium.
The club has a zero-tolerance policy on the usage of any pyrotechnics on site. Those that are found in possession of or using any pyro will be identified and sanctioned.
Visiting supporters attending the game should access the stadium via Trubshaw Close.
All of the above guidance has been produced in cooperation with our Safety Advisory Group, with a view to ensuring that the day is as safe as possible for all supporters.
We’d like to thank all supporters for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you all to The Mem this weekend.
