    \r\n

  • It is all pay at the turnstiles, no tickets will be on sale before the game.
  • \r\n

  • Three sides of the ground will be open, away fans will be in the Hazelwoods stand and will enter via the Bowling Green entrance (signposted on the day) Home fans can access the main stand via the normal turnstile entrance or the Liberty Mutual Insurance stand via the turnstiles to the left of the players entrance.
  • \r\n

  • There will be NO transfer between sections of the ground – if you choose the end then you are in the end all match, likewise the main stand
  • \r\n

  • We would urge fans enter the ground early to avoid queuing
  • \r\n

  • There will be no pass outs and the bar will close 15 minutes before kickoff and will not open at half time
  • \r\n

  •  A proper printed ticket will be issued on entry, this will be the one to use for the discount for Chester (£10 entry)
  • \r\n

  • As this is a first round proper match then all relevant football laws are in force, breaking the rules puts you at risk of a banning order
  • \r\n

  • Parking will be limited, we would urge home fans use the Supporters Trust bus, use Parklands social club (£4 charge) or use town centre, but do not park in the no parking zones around the ground  as council likely to be checking and you could be towed
  • \r\n

  • Come Dine With Us packages will be £40pp for this match, concessions at £30pp (contact Colin for full details)
