STADIUM ENTRY DETAILS FOR BARNSLEY FIXTURE

24 April 2015

The Club today (Friday) have announced turnstile and access arrangements for this Saturday’s final home game of the season versus Barnsley (kick-off 3:00pm) at the Coral Windows Stadium.  


The turnstile arrangements are identical to those used so successfully at the recent home games versus Preston North End and Bristol City.

 

Turnstiles will open in every area of the stadium from 1.30pm and supporters are asked to target an early arrival.  Fans using the Northern Commercials Stand on Midland Road should note that the number of turnstiles available to Home fans in that section will be limited for this game.  The traditional minute’s silence will be held prior to kick-off and charity walkers (including City kit-man John Duckworth and his team from Lincoln City and 45 walkers from Barnsley FC) will be doing a lap of honour to conclude their walk at around 2.20pm.  So everyone is asked to get to the stadium as early as possible.  Please note that all turnstiles will cease operation for the duration of the minute’s silence.

 

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 this Saturday’s home game against Barnsley, the following entrances are the easiest way to gain entry to the stadium:

 

 

For the JCT 600 West Stand

  • Home 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.
  • Home 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 West corner

  • This will only be available to people who have obtained tickets in advance through the Community Foundation - supporters with match tickets should make their way into the stand via turnstiles NW5-NW6.

For the North Stand Kop

  • Home 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.
  • Home 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.
  • Home 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

  • Home 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 E1 to E4, all of which are located on Midland Road.
  • Home 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. 

Late turnstiles
All turnstiles will cease to operate during the one minute’s silence.  There will be late turnstiles for each part of the stadium which will remain open until half-time.  There will be two late gates per section with one being for flexi-card holders paying cash on the day and the other for holders of season tickets, match tickets or flexi-cards where the seats have been paid for in advance.

  • For the JCT 600 (West) Stand, tickets holders should go to W4, with flexi-card cash payers using W3.
  • For the North West corner, match ticket holders should go to NW6 which can be located next to the main ticket office.
  • For the North Stand Kop, ticket holders should go to N1, with flexi-card cash payers using N8 (both of which are behind the Kop - there is no late turnstile for the Kop on Midland Road).
  • For the Northern Commercials (East) Stand, ticket holders should use E4 with flexi-card cash players using E5.

As previously announced, there will be a road closure in place on Midland Road for this game.  Midland Road between its junctions with Thorncliffe Road and Cornwall Road will be closed from 1pm until 5.30pm to ensure the large number of spectators using Midland Road can arrive and leave the stadium safely and to enable Away coaches to park in that area.  The lower sections of Holywell Ash Lane will also be closed during the same period.  Supporters are also reminded to ensure that their vehicle is secure and that any valuables are either removed from the car entirely or placed out of sight while your car is parked up for the game.

 

Finally, supporters are reminded that the players and team management intend to do a lap of appreciation at the final whistle to than supporters for the fantastic backing during the 2015/16 season.  This can only take place if supporters stay off the pitch at all times and we look forward to supporters co-operating with this request so that the players can say thank you to everyone.
