After finishing top of the group stage, tonight (Tuesday 5 December 2017) we entertain Oldham Athletic in round 2 of the Checkatrade Trophy. Last season we made it within two rounds of the Wembley Final so we look to better that this season. Please remember that tonight’s game kicks off at the earlier time of 7.30pm. Admission prices are £10 for adults, £5 Concession and just £1 for Children.
Most people will be paying cash on the night (which is a slower entry process) and with the essential searching, please get here as soon as you can to gain access to the stadium. Turnstiles in every section will be open from 6.30pm.
Season tickets are not valid for tonight’s game. There will be no home turnstiles available on Midland Road. The JCT 600 West Stand is the only stand open for home supporters and will be accessible through turnstiles in the Directors’ car park.
JCT 600 (West) Stand - turnstile W3, W4, W12 & W13 are for cash entry only and W11 will open for those who have prepaid tickets. Supporters in wheelchairs can gain access to the JCT 600 West Stand via Gate WD on Valley Parade or via the 1911 Club reception using the lift.
Supporters are reminded that in line with legislation and the EFL ground regulations, the entire stadium, including the seating areas, concourses, stairways, turnstiles and toilets, is a no-smoking area. The use of electronic cigarettes in all parts of the stadium is also forbidden.
Supporters are also asked not to bring bags to the stadium. Where this is unavoidable, all bags will need to be searched before entry can be allowed. Items included on the EFL ground regulations that are deemed to be a potential risk, including bottles and aerosols, will not be allowed into the stadium.
In addition, supporters will not be allowed to record or live-stream any of the live match action. The Club has been reminded by the EFL of its obligations to prevent live footage of the game being stored, recorded or transmitted and stewards will take appropriate action if this regulation is contravened.
The Club would also like to take this opportunity to remind people travelling to the stadium by car to make sure that their car is left secure and that no valuables are on view. With the number of people coming to the game, thieves may target the area. If you do suffer any crime of this type while attending the game, please report the problem to West Yorkshire Police immediately by calling the non-emergency 101 number.
In addition, we would ask anyone parking up for the game to park responsibly and not obstruct access to residential or business premises or to block access ways for emergency vehicles to the stadium or other premises in the area. There will be no road closure in place for this game.
Enjoy the game!
