Tickets for all supporters will be on sale from 9am on Tuesday, 2nd November. Home supporters are asked to ensure that they choose the ‘Home Admission’ option.

The game will be segregated with home supporters occupying the Shortstocks/Peter De Banke end of the ground and away supporters in the Birch Road end. Home supporters will have exclusive access to the Club Bar and Dale’s Bar as usual and we hope to have additional catering facilities situated next to the Peter De Banke Terrace.

Away supporters have been allocated the Birch Road end of the ground and will have access to the Oak Room bar until the end of half time.

Turnstiles will open at 6.30pm and home supporters should enter the ground through the home turnstiles. All supporters are encouraged to arrive early and to follow the direction of matchday stewards at all times. Turnstiles will close if capacity has been reached or on the advice of the matchday safety officer and/or Police.

All supporters will be subject to bag searches and random personal searches by appointed club stewards prior to ground entry.

Supporters from both clubs are reminded that our ground regulations will be enforced. Exit and re-entry to the ground will not be permitted and any supporter found in the wrong end of the ground will be ejected.
