It's perfect if you’re looking for somewhere to spend some time or grab some food before the game.

  • Check the weather before you leave for the game and dress accordingly as you will be outside in the open air for the match.
  • If this is your first football match you will need to understand that is can be a very noisy place within a stadium and small children may wish to wear ear muffs.
  • The Family Stand is situated in the Bisley Stand and we would recommend choosing a seat in this area for your first visit or when visiting with young children.  The Hazell Terrace is the loudest part of the ground.
  • When attending the game with young children, we recommend ensuring they have an emergency contact number with them in case you become separated. Once at your seats identify the nearest steward in case you need assistance for any reason.
  • Staff and volunteers are easily spotted around the ground and will be able to assist you with any enquiries.
  • It is important that nobody within your party wears colours or kits of the away club. If you are supporting the away team, please purchase tickets for the away end by contacting the oppostion Club directly.
