A COVID-19 Declaration Form will be emailed to you or the bubble group leader between 24-48 hours before the game, which you will need to read through and accept before your Match Permits are issued.
To access the stadium on the day, you can either show your Match Permit on a smart phone, or print off where it will be scanned at the turnstile at the JobServe Community Stadium prior to entry.
The ticket office will not be open, although tickets will be available to purchase on the day from Col U Tickets, or on the new tocuchscreen in the Club Shop, until forty-five minutes after kick-off.

Whilst it isn’t now mandatory to wear masks or exercise social distancing, please show consideration to your fellow supporters and keep each other safe. We recommend that masks are worn in crowded spaces and when in close proximity to others, and that you keep a safe distance from others if possible. Hand sanitisers will still be available around the stadium and we advise their use to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
The normal exit gates will be operational, but please follow any further guidance from stewards.
