Guide For New Fans

We want to do everything we can to ensure that your first visit to Holker Street runs smoothly and you have a great time.

The first thing you will need to put in place is your tickets for the big game – and we’ve made buying these as easy as can be so there should be no problems here!

You will need to choose whether you want to stand or sit, and which area of the ground you would like to go – and then you’ll be ready to go!

Whilst there will be no cash turnstiles in operation on the day of the game, we do have a Ticket Office located near Main Reception which will be open from 1.30pm until kick-off.

Buying in advance is always advised to avoid disappointment and also the potential for queuing on matchday.

Take a look below at our options – and then click here to order your tickets online.

There is seating available in The Brian Arrowsmith Main Stand at a cost of £19 for adults, £15 for Over 65s or Students and £6 for Under 18s. A point to note – Under 7s go FREE as long as they’re with a full-paying adult.

If you’d prefer to stand then you have some options.

The Holker Street End is behind one of the goals and has had a new roof put on it during the summer to ensure that the atmosphere is even better as we return to the EFL.

Otherwise, you can head to The Ray Wilkie Stand which runs alongside the pitch or The Steelworks End which is behind the opposite goal.

It won’t matter which area you choose in terms of price – standing tickets are £16 for adults, £13 for Over 65s and Students and £5 for Under 18s. And again, Under 7s are completely FREE with a full-paying adult.

Club Shop
If it’s your first visit then you’re going to want to pick up something to help you remember the big day and we’ve got an array of merchandise waiting for you in our Club Shop.

You’ll find the Club Shop behind Main Reception on Wilkie Road and it will be open from 12noon until kick-off on a Saturday matchday.

Food & Drink
There are catering outlets inside the ground in the Holker Street End which serves a selection of hot and cold food, as well as hot and cold drinks.

We are also fully-licenced to serve alcoholic drinks to both home and away supporters so feel free to get in to the ground early and enjoy a pre-match pint.

All supporters are more than welcome to join us in The Cross Bar which is close to Main Reception on Wilkie Road and serves a great range of pre-match drinks.

We are also due to open an all-new Fan Zone in 2020/21 so we will be excited to invite you join us there for what is sure to be a fantastic atmosphere before kick-off.

The stadium is only a short walk from the train station so don't worry if that's how you are arriving in town - it couldn't be simpler.

However, if you're driving then we've got everything you need to know in a specially-dedicated page - click here for full directions.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer official parking at the stadium due to limited capacity.

However, the Soccer Club – adjacent to Main Reception – offer spaces at a small cost on a first come first served basis on matchdays.

Match Programmes
Our revamped Matchday Programme will be available around the ground so keep an eye out for sellers and make sure you pick up a copy while stocks last.

Programmes will also be available from The Ticket Office and Club Shop – but don’t worry if you don’t manage to get one on the day, simply head online and order one there (click here now)!
