Be early & buy ticket in adance

Please look to getting to the stadium earlier than usual for the friendlies against Stoke City and Preston North End.

As you would expect, there are less restrictions compared to a couple of weeks ago, for instance masks are now not compulsory though advised. For the last few weeks they were needed to get in to watch the game.

Another thing that has changed is the wait to get into the ground, prior to last Monday tickets were time banded, but now you can turn up at any time you wish to get into the ground with your prepaid ticket.

Judging how the crowds have been for the rugby games, the queues were not to bad up to 40 minutes before kick-off, but they became bigger from 30 minutes prior to the game starting.

This is due to the turnstiles not yet being synchronised with the ticket office, and this will more than likely be the case for our home friendlies, and maybe the first League home game.

Those who purchased and printed their tickets off before arriving at the stadium just had the one queue into the ground, those that rocked up on the night also had the added queue at the ticket office, as there is no pay on the gate.

The concourses are functioning as before, only the Springfield and Boston Stands will be open for the friendlies. You will be glad to knowthat the Supportres Club in the South Stand Bar will be open to all fans before and after the games too.

Memberships for the 2021-22 season will be available to buy online ahead of the game or on the night in the bar, though cards will only be available for the first League home game.

My advice is to get there early to avoid waiting to get in, definitely buy your tickets before arrival if you can, to avoid queuing twice (once at the ticket office, once at the gates).
