COVID-19 Advice
The Club is repeating its request for supporters attending games at The Dunes Hotel Stadium to exercise respect and consideration for those around them.

We are recommending that you continue to follow advice on COVID-19 protocols where possible to ensure we can offer as safe and welcoming an environment for all fans as possible.

Click here now to read our updated Fans’ Code of Conduct for 2021/22.

Tickets for tonight’s game are on sale now online and from Main Reception at The Dunes Hotel Stadium and fans can make a saving by buying in advance.

Home fans will also be able to buy tickets on the day of the game from the Main Reception (card payment only) and from 6pm in the Fan Zone Ticket Booth (cash and card), but these will be at the slightly higher price.

To avoid matchday queuing and save money, fans are strongly advised to buy in advance online, where you can either print your e-ticket or simply show the ticket on your smartphone at the turnstiles.

Tickets will remain available online (and at the lower price) until 5pm on matchday.

Fan Zone/Cross Bar
The Fan Zone will open at 5pm and fans who would like to visit prior to kick-off are advised to make their way directly to it rather than go through the turnstiles as you will not be able to access it from inside the stadium.

The Fan Zone will close at the end of half time this evening and not reopen after the game

The Cross Bar is also open to fans from 5pm and will remain open until 11pm after the game.

We are continuing to look at ways of reducing queueing but one of the main issues is staffing – if you are interested in some part-time work then please get in touch on

The Dunes Hotel Stadium is a no smoking stadium. Smoking, including vaping, is not permitted in any area of the ground.

Unfortunately, we have no available parking at the stadium.

However, as per the map, the parking in blue is available for both home and away supporters. 300 spaces at Liberata are free, as is any street parking on Phoenix Road.

The smaller car park beside the Soccer Bar costs £4 – away fans are welcome.

The restricted parking is for players, officials, staff and disabled supporters or those with mobility issues/blue badges and who have already booked and confirmed.

Reporting Issues
We have a dedicated team to support our younger and more vulnerable fans. You will see signs around the ground informing supporters of where and how to report any concerns they may have.

Fans can contact us via email on, use the Reporting Concerns link in our Safeguarding Section of the Official Website (click here) or by telephone on 01229 666 010 during normal office hours.
