Turnstile details for Preston match

27 January 2014

The football club would like to inform supporters that there will be a couple of changes in place with regards access ways to the Coral Windows Stadium for Tuesday night’s Sky Bet League 1 game versus Preston North End (kick-off 7.45pm).

 

First of all, please note that there will be a road closure in place on Midland Road for this game.


The closure will stretch from the junction of Thorncliffe Road right through to Cornwall Road and will include Holywell Ash Lane from its junction with Lupton Street.


The road closure will be in place from 6.15pm until 10.00pm.

 

Secondly, Blocks F&G of the Northern Commercials Stand in Midland Road will not be used by the Community Section and will be kept as a sterile area for this game.


Turnstiles E9-E12 will be closed for this game as a result.

 

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


It is appreciated that people will be travelling from work or college, but arriving just 10-15 minutes early can help to ensure that everyone gets in the stadium before kick-off.

 

On top of this, the club would like to take this opportunity to remind spectators of the standard arrangements for entry to the Coral Windows Stadium.

 

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 flexi-card holders wanting to pay cash on the day, but to ease congestion in the area around the Bantams Ticket Office, supporters are asked to use the turnstiles on Midland Road (please see image below).
  • Supporters for the North Stand Kop who haven’t pre-booked and wish to pay cash can enter via turnstile N1, which again is behind the Kop.


For the Northern Commercials (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 club’s 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.
