STADIUM ACCESS FOR MK DONS HOME MATCH

27 February 2017

vs MILTON KEYNES DONS - Sky Bet League One, Tuesday 28 February 2017, 7:45pm


We really appreciate the support we have had from fans this season in getting to the stadium early for all home games.  


We know that a Tuesday night game puts more pressure on fans to get here in good time as they leave work, university, pick up the children, travel in rush-hour traffic, etc. However, getting here just those few minutes earlier does help everyone to get into the stadium ready for the 7.45pm kick-off.  


The match against Milton Keynes Dons is a crucial game in our battle for promotion, so we ask again for people to get here as soon as possible.  


Turnstiles will open in every section from 6.30pm.

 

One of the reasons we ask spectators to get here early is to implement the essential safety and security procedures as people enter the stadium.  


Supporters are asked not to bring bags to the stadium but when that is unavoidable, please note that it will be necessary to check all bags prior to entry.  


This may slow down the entry process a little, so spectators are asked to have their tickets ready for inspection and co-operate with stewards as they carry out this important task.  


Bags checks will be conducted at every point of entry to the stadium including turnstiles and banqueting facilities. 

 

We would also take this opportunity to remind supporters 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 in use and busy 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.  Supporters are also reminded that on leaving the stadium they can exit via the One-in-a-Million free school compound.  


This leads to Thorncliffe Road and gives spectators easy access towards Midland Road or Manningham Lane. So, rather than queue at the staircase near to the Ticket Office, take a right turn and exit through the compound for an easier route away from 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.  


Adult tickets on a match day are priced at £25.00 each with concessions at £15.00 and juniors at £10.00 (adult tickets are reduced to £20.00 when bought before 5:00pm on the day before the game).

 

So, for Tuesday’s Sky Bet League One home game against Milton Keynes Dons (kick-off 7.45pm), the following entrances are the easiest way 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.

Road closures and car security

There will be no road closures in place for this game.  The Club would 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.  Thieves may well to target the area knowing there is a game taking place, so please take every possible precaution.  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.
