STADIUM ENTRY DETAILS FOR SHEFFIELD UNITED FIXTURE

17 October 2014

The club have announced the turnstiles arrangements for the game on Saturday (18 October 2014) against Sheffield United, which kicks-off at 5.15pm.
 


Obviously, with the later kick-off and the larger number of away supporters expected, there are some changes to the stadium configuration for this game.


Turnstiles will open for all areas of the stadium one and a half hours before kick-off at 3.45pm. 


Supporters are asked to get to the stadium as early as possible to avoid any last minute queues for what is likely to be a large crowd. 


The club wishes to remind all home supporters of the standard policy that any home supporters who haven’t got a ticket or pass in their possession before the game must buy a ticket from the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium before they approach the turnstiles.


For Saturday’s game versus Sheffield United (kick-off 5.15pm), the following entrances are the easiest way for you to gain entry to the stadium:


For the JCT 600 West Stand

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles W4-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 flexi-card who wish to pay cash on the day can enter by turnstiles W3 or W11.
  • Any spectator with no passes or tickets should make their way to the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium to make a purchase.

For the North Stand Kop

  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seats have been paid for in advance - should make their way to turnstiles N1 to N4  and N5-N6, all of which are located behind the Kop.
  • Supporters with pre-paid tickets - i.e. season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seat has been paid for in advance - can also enter both levels of the North Stand Kop through turnstiles N11 - N14 which can be located on Midland Road.
  • Supporters with a flexi-card 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.  N7 and N8 behind the Kop (close to the Bantams Bar entrance) will also be available for flexi-card 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.
  • Any spectator with no passes or tickets should make their way to the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium to make a purchase.


For the Northern Commercials (East) Stand

  • Supporters with a flexi-card who wish to pay cash on the day can enter the Northern Commercials Stand by turnstiles E5 or E6.
  • Any spectator with no passes or tickets who wants to sit in Blocks A-E of the stand, should make their way to the main ticket office in the North West corner of the stadium to make a purchase.
  • Supporters who have obtained tickets through the Club’s Community Foundation will, for this game, be dispersed in other areas of the stadium and are asked to check their tickets carefully before arriving at the stadium and make their way to the appropriate turnstiles listed above.
