Ticket Office

Please be aware if you sit in Midland Road Block E this is allocated to the Away Side for this match only.

You can swap seats via the ticket office up until kick-off, we advise you come to the ground early to avoid any queues.

We are opening a separate window at the ticket office for Season Ticket Holders that sit in Block E for Season Ticket Holders to collect/swap seats.

Some supporters have still not collected their season tickets for the 2018/19 season. If you are wanting to attend the game and still have to collect your ticket, please get down to the stadium first thing in the morning. Due to the potential for congestion in the North West Corner after the match with people leaving the stadium for the same safety reasons, the ticket office will not open at all after the final whistle.

The opening hours are: 

Saturday (matchday) 9:00am-3:00pm
