Extra COVID-19 matchday safety measures

Due to recent changes in COVID-19 guidance, we are having to implement some additional measures to ensure the safety of all spectators at The Avenue Stadium, starting from the pre-season friendly against Yeovil Town tomorrow evening:

  • Make sure in advance that you know where your entry point is
  • Please arrive in good time to go through all the necessary entry procedures
  • On entering the ground through the turnstiles a face covering should be worn
  • Your temperature maybe taken on entry
  • Due to the space required to have the maximum number of fans, personal bags that are not for medical purposes will not be allowed into the stadium
  • Please observe social distancing and avoid close contact with others not in your bubble
  • Once in the ground groups of more than six people in close proximity will be ask to disperse and failure to comply will be a breach of ground regulations and government guidelines – if fans fail to comply they may be asked to leave the stadium
  • Guidelines suggest that when moving around the ground you should wear a face covering
  • If you leave your viewing area, please follow one-way directional signs and wear a face covering where appropriate
  • Try to use the clubs amenities at quieter periods and avoid creating long queue times if possible
  • Supporters are required to wear a mask when ordering from the snack bar unless medically exempt
  • Take care when shouting, singing or celebrating – difficult we know but these are challenging times
  • Thank you for your support and co-operation with all the challenges that come with COVID-19 and football.
