Turnstile details - Port Vale game

18 February 2014

The football club would like to confirm their turnstile arrangements to its supporters ahead of Tuesday night’s (18 February 2014) Sky Bet League 1 home fixture against Port Vale.


The club appreciates that supporters will be rushing to the stadium straight from work and therefore there are no significant changes to the turnstiles arrangements for this game.


The club do feel, however, that it is worth reminding spectators of the now standard arrangements for the current season.  


As usual with a 7.45pm kick-off, turnstiles will open in all areas at 6.30pm with additional turnstiles being opened as operators arrive at the stadium.

 

Supporters are reminded that anyone wishing to pay cash with a FlexiCard for the Kop should make their way to Midland Road and use turnstiles N9 and N10.  


The turnstiles on Midland Road for the Kop provide access to both levels of the stand.  


By using Midland Road, spectators will avoid any congestion and queues next to the main ticket office at the back of the Kop.

 

Supporters are asked to note that there will be no road closure in place on Midland Road for this game.  


The road closures will only be in place when 6 or more coaches are expected from the visiting club.  


This is not the case for Port Vale and therefore Midland Road will remain open.  


Supporters, however, who are travelling on foot or by car are asked to show extra care in the build-up to the game and at the final whistle when vehicles will be moving in the roads around the stadium.

 

The club has also repeated its usual appeal for spectators to arrive just a few minutes earlier than their usual time for the game.  


If spectators are able to arrive just 10-15 minutes earlier, it reduces queues at the turnstiles and ensures everyone can be inside the stadium for the kick-off.

 

The standard entry points for the stadium include:

 

For the Main West Stand

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or FlexiCards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles W5-W10 or W12-W18. These turnstiles are all located in the Directors’ car park either side of the glass doors that lead to the banqueting areas.
  • Supporters with a FlexiCard who wish to pay cash on the day can enter by turnstiles W4 or W11.
  • Supporters for the Main West Stand who haven’t pre-booked and wish to pay cash can enter via turnstile W3 (which is the turnstile nearest to Valley Parade).

For the North Stand Kop

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or FlexiCards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles N3 or N4 and N5-N8, all of which are located behind the Kop.
  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or FlexiCards where the seats has been paid for in advance – can also enter the North Stand Kop through turnstiles N11 - N14 which can be located on Midland Road.
  • Supporters with a FlexiCard for the North Stand Kop, who wish to pay cash on the day, are asked to gain access through turnstiles N9-N10 on Midland Road.  N2 behind the Kop will also be available for FlexiCard holders wanting to pay cash on the day, but to ease congestion in the area around the ticket office; all supporters are asked to use the turnstiles on Midland Road.
  • Supporters for the North Stand Kop who haven’t pre-booked and wish to pay cash can enter via turnstile N1, which is behind the Kop.

For the Northern Commercial (East) Stand

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or FlexiCards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles E1, E4, E5 or E6, all of which are located on Midland Road.
  • Supporters with a FlexiCard who wish to pay cash on the day can enter the Northern Commercials Stand by turnstiles E2 or E3.
  • Please note there is no cash only option for the Northern Commercials Stand for this game - supporters wishing to pay full rates in cash should make their way to the Upper level of the Main West Stand via turnstile W3 in the Directors’ car park.

Other points to note:

  • The cash only turnstiles (W3 for the Main West Stand and N1 for the North Stand Kop) offer no choice of seats and only take cash.  Any supporter wishing to have a choice of seats or pay by credit or charge cards must go to the Bantams Ticket Office.
  • Restrictions will again be in place in the area of the ticket office to avoid any crowd congestion in that area - supporters are asked to keep clear of this area unless they have a specific reason for approaching the stadium via this route.
  • The Club will continue its policy of having a late entry gate in each section of the stadium.  This gate will stay open until half-time.   W3 will be the late gate for the Main West Stand, N1 for the North Stand Kop and E1 for the Northern Commercials Stand.
