The Club are pleased to announce details of the forthcoming local derby against EFL newcomers Forest Green Rovers.
Following the Gloucestershire Club’s recent promotion to the Football League, the EFL have provided the Club with special dispensation in relation to their ground criteria. Consequently, Newport County AFC have been working closely with Forest Green Rovers to provide an increased allocation for County supporters which will include two wheelchair bays and 20 seats for ambulant disabled supporters, as well as 926 uncovered terrace tickets.
The Club would like to thank Forest Green Rovers for their efforts in increasing the away allocation for our supporters, as we seek to take a large County following to the match.
