On Tuesday 13th February we welcome French club Vinsky FC to Broadhurst Park in our latest game of the 2023/24 Fenix Trophy. Can we take another step towards the summer finals with a vital 3 points? Like FC, the visitors are on 3 points in Group C and should provide a strong test as we look to once again be crowned champions of a European competition.
This match is proudly sponsored by Holden Knight.
Digital ticketing trial
For this fixture we are trialing a digital ticketing system courtesy of Fanbase. Match tickets can be purchased in advance using the Fanbase app/website and those fans who take part in the trial will be entered into our Pound for the Ground half-time draw with a complimentary ticket. The greater the number who use the Fanbase system, the greater our understanding of whether the system would sufficiently carry out our ticketing and match day operations to the level expected by our club and supporters. More info here.
There is no segregation in place for this game and supporters are to enter via turnstiles 1-4. The turnstiles will open at 6pm. Turnstiles 1 will be the cash only turnstile, turnstile 2 will be the card only turnstile and turnstiles 3 & 4 will be for advance tickets only. To avoid queues we would recommend using the Fanbase digital ticketing trial – get your tickets here.
