**Stadium Access –** Supporters must enter the stand for which they hold tickets to gain entry into the ground. Kingston Park Stadium’s ticket scanners will have restrictions in place that will only allow tickets for that stand to be scanned.

**Security –** Kingston Park Stadium will be operating enhanced security procedures around Sunday’s game, including bag searches. If you would usually bring a bag to the game please consider whether this is something you really need; if you do need to bring a bag please be aware that it will be subject to search from security staff and be sure to allow extra time for getting into the ground.

**Bars –** Supporters bar facilities are available in the East and West stands. All bars within the stadium will be running a reduced price happy hour drinks promotion from 1.30pm-2.30pm.

Please note that the exclusive Season Ticket Members’ bar on the ground floor of the East Stand will be open from midday for Sunday’s game, with reduced price drinks and a player question and answer session in the build up to kick off.
