Season ticket, Ten Match Ticket Book and league match tickets update

As you will now be aware new government guidelines have allowed a return to stadiums for a limited number of spectators with capacities for step 3 clubs set at 600 for all teams in our league, this is having an impact on Season ticket, Ten Match Ticket Book and league match tickets.

As you will now be aware new government guidelines have allowed a return to stadiums for a limited number of spectators with capacities for step 3 clubs set at 600 for all teams in our league. There are no target dates for increasing capacities but the NPL have assured us they are lobbying for the % to be changed to 30% of actual capacity (rather than minimum ground grading) which would increase ours to around 1400. The earliest expected review is October meaning we are likely to begin the league campaign with a 600 capacity.

These capacity cuts are unprecedented and there is no way they work for us as a club but we must adhere to them with it having being emphasised to all clubs that capacities will be further cut very quickly if there are any issues.

The board took the following decisions following consultations with key staff and volunteers:



Away League matches:

For away league matches we will obtain a minimum of 90 tickets if the match is all ticket and we intend to hold a priority sales period for 2020/21 current club members with any remaining tickets on general sale. League fixtures are due out on 28th August and we will update with further information when we know our fixtures and have held the necessary discussions with other clubs.

Home match Pre-season Friendlies:

City of Liverpool Sat 5th September 3pm ko
Trafford Tues 8th September 7.45pm ko
Potentially one more home friendly TBC

All away supporters should refer to their own clubs who will have received an allocation.

Home supporters will need to book tickets online in advance with collection on the day of the match from the cabin outside the ground (which will operate a socially distanced one way queuing system for Covid safety). There will be a priority booking period for current 2020/21 members with any remaining tickets on general sale. Allow more time than usual to collect tickets and enter the ground.

Please check our website and social media for full ticket arrangements very shortly.

Away Pre-season Friendlies:

Clitheroe Mon 31st August 3pm ko: We will have 200 tickets on sale online imminently and will be available to all FC supporters on a 1st come 1st served basis. Please refer to website and club social media for updates. This game is strictly all ticket.
