    BARS AND FOOD

    Both home and away supporters will have access to all bars and food provision.

    The club has been granted a licence to serve alcohol throughout the match and fans will now be allowed to drink alcohol on the terraces from plastic glasses. As a result all drinks will now be served in plastic glasses.

    On Saturday a bar will be situated in view of the pitch in the area of the ground between the Main Stand and SMRE.

    The SMRE Bar situated under the St. Mary’s Road End terrace will serve draught beer and bottles before the match, and throughout the match, at half time and after the match. Only drinks served in plastic glasses will be allowed to be taken into the stands.

    The Main Stand Function Room Bar will serve hot food together with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks before, during the match. We ask that fans purchasing alcohol in the Main Stand Bar during the game do not congregate at the back of the Main Stand, but instead find a position in the seats or terraces.

    On Saturday we have a function in the Main Stand Bar after the match, so the bar will be closed shortly after half time. The SMRE bar will open after the match where the Arsenal v Man United match will be shown on the TV screens ko 5.30pm.

    Before the turnstiles open, access to the Main Stand Function Room Bar is via the main reception by payment of the match admission price. After the turnstiles open, entry to the function room will be via turnstiles 1-6 or 9-12 and then through the seated area of the main stand.

    Under the Main Stand Food Bar will serve hot food prepared by our chef and pies from J W Buckleys and non-alcoholic drinks.

    Burger vans will also sell hot food and non-alcoholic drinks.

    Please note the Main Stand Bar and SMRE Bars are No Smoking Areas. Supporters wishing to smoke at half-time can do so in the designated areas in the corners of the ground.

    POUND FOR THE GROUND TICKETS

    We are still raising money for the club’s Development Fund as there are parts of the ground we need to complete. The quickest and easiest way is to buy a Pound for the Ground ticket at £1 each at the match with cash prizes on offer.

    CLUB SHOP

    The Club Shop is accessible at the front of the ground to the right of the Main Entrance. As well as the usual hats, scarves and badges, we will also be selling the home and away replica shirts (shorts and socks) and a range of T-shirts and jackets.

    If travelling via the motorway network from the north and west, head for the M60 Manchester ring road. Leave the M60 at junction 20, then turn onto the A664. At the traffic signals turn left onto the A6104. Travel straight on and then at the Greengate roundabout take the 4th exit onto Lightbowne Road, the B6393. Carry straight on for around a half a mile and Broadhurst Park is on your left.

    If travelling via the motorway network from the south and east, head for the M60 Manchester ring road. Leave the M60 at junction 22, then straight on to Hollinwood Avenue, the A6104 .

    We are under a duty to ensure areas such as St Mary’s Road and the north of Nuthurst Road are not used by visitors to Broadhurst Park.

    Supporters should be mindful that there is no parking on:

    - St Mary’s Road and the streets off St Mary’s Road; including Teddington Road, Merridale Road, Worthington Street and Tymm Street.

    - Nuthurst Road;

    - the West side of Moston Lane and the streets off it.

    We can always use more volunteers to act as traffic marshals and indeed for a number of matchday functions, so if you can help, send an email to John Davies johndavies@fc-utd.co.uk or telephone the office on 0161 769 2005 and leave a phone number for him to contact you to discuss.
