IMPORTANT SHREWSBURY MATCH TURNSTILE DETAILS

12 August 2015

The Club have today (Wednesday) announced its standard turnstile arrangements which will be in place for the majority of home games in the coming season. This includes a reduction in the number of flexi-card cash turnstiles in some sections as many flexi-card ticket holders have transferred to season tickets for the new season.

 

The Club would ask supporters to arrive at the stadium as early as possible.  With the majority of spectators having season tickets there will be a danger of fans thinking they can arrive in the last few minutes before kick-off.  With over 18000 season tickets sold, nothing could be further from the truth and the earlier spectators can arrive at the stadium, the better for all concerned.  Turnstiles will be open in every section of the stadium from 1.30pm.

 

The other significant change for this year is that the main Ticket Office will not open at all after each home game.  With the North Stand Kop being close to capacity and the North West Corner now back in use for every game, the ticket office will be closed after each home game to avoid adding to congestion in that area as supporters leave the stadium.

 

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 home game against Shrewsbury Town (kick-off 3pm), the following entrances are the easiest way to gain entry to the stadium:

  • 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 West corner:

  • 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 NW3-NW6.  These turnstiles are located in the North West corner to the left of the main Ticket Office as supporters approach it down the steps from Burlington Street.
  • Supporters with a flexi-card who wish to pay cash on the day can enter by turnstiles NW1-NW2.  These turnstiles are located in the North West corner to the right of the main Ticket Office as supporters approach it down the steps from Burlington Street.
