Cheltenham Town host Wycombe Wanderers in the first home League One fixture of the season on Saturday at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
Kick-off against the Chairboys is at 3pm and tickets for the game are available to purchase.
By buying in advance fans can save £2 on matchday prices. You can buy online or you can do so by visiting the ticket office.
PRE-PAID TICKET COLLECTIONS
We have installed a new Portakabin in the car park at the ground next to the bowling club. A window at one end of the Portakabin will be available for collection of pre-paid tickets for all HOME areas of the ground. Please note there is no facility for ticket collections on the Colin Farmer Stand side of the ground at present.
MATCH DAY TICKET SALES
The best and cheapest way to purchase tickets for all home matches is in advance of match day. For those supporters wishing to buy on the day the following sales points will be open:
Seat tickets - Main Stand and Colin Farmer Stand seats will be available to buy from the ticket office
Terrace tickets - Standing tickets in the Speedy Skips Stand, Paddock, Tunnel and Canteen enclosures will be on sale from the new Portakabin
Either cash or credit/debit card will be accepted. There will no longer be any payment accepted at the turnstiles.
MAIN STAND WHEELCHAIR BAY
As the 'patio area' is no longer available as a wheelchair bay the club has commissioned drawings for a new purpose built wheelchair platform. Until this new platform is operational there will be a temporary wheelchair viewing area at the other end of the Main Stand next to the Speedy Skips Stand. Please note, however, that this temporary area is uncovered.
The club are pleased to announce that the Parklands entrance will now be open for access to the Colin Farmer Stand from Saturday the 14th August and for all future fixtures following the successful outcome of negotiations between the parties.
The car park is now completely full for Saturday's match. Normally there are a small number of car park tickets on sale to supporters but these must be booked in advance of the match day.
The main bar will be open before and after the match serving drinks and snacks as before. There is no longer any requirement for table only service and card payments will be accepted. The Premier Suite has now been re-furbished and will be used as an additional sponsorship suite this season. Part of the reason for this is because the former sponsorship suite on the top floor of the Main Stand has now been converted into hospitality boxes.
Last March the turnstiles closed following the final League Two match against Port Vale and a national lockdown quickly followed.
The global pandemic has impacted every aspect of life in our community and we want to use the occasion on Saturday as fans return in full capacity to remember the people we've lost with an association to the club during this difficult period.
Shortly before kick-off we will be paying tribute having invited supporters to get in touch with late freinds and family members in mind. As well as being shown on the big screen shortly before kick-off, pictures and messages will also feature on our club website and in the match programme.
NEW WALK OUT SONG
Once again we have been working closely with music producer Nigel Groom, who has composed a new walk out song 'March of the Robins' to accompany the players emerging from the tunnel this season as they compete in League One for the first time in 12 years.
Overseas supporter Nigel hopes that the battle anthem can create "energy and intensity" for both the players on the pitch and fans in the stands to help build the atmosphere at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
Our freinds at Glos Info have also been working with the club to create a new pre-match video that captures the highs of the title success last season to go with the long awaited return of our magnificent fans in 2021/22.
Like the walk out song, the video will be shown shortly before kick-off at every home game so be sure to keep an eye out for both as kick-off approaches.
Although most of the strict COVID-19 protocols have now been lifted, the club is still required to have a 'Red Zone' at the ground and the players/coaching staff are still maintained within their own training and playing 'bubble'. This means that the pitch, tunnel, patio area and players entrance are all strictly out of bounds to all but cleared personnel. Social distancing from players/coaching staff is also to be maintained. The club's Safety Certificate has been updated for the new season and Gloucestershire County Council, the issuing authority, make the following recommendations for attending matches:
• Use hand sanitizer stations at ground
• Maintain social distance from others not in your group as far as possible
• Wear facemasks when entering via turnstiles, indoor concourses/refreshment areas, when leaving the ground and any crowded areas (apply personal preference to remove whilst seated)
• Follow stewards instructions and any social distancing signage when moving around, exiting the stadium and using toilet facilities etc.
• Consider taking a lateral flow test on day of game
• Don’t attend if you have symptoms or told to self-isolate
• Listen for any Covid 19 related PA announcements
Please note that proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test will not be required for you to attend.
Season tickets for the 2021/22 campaign are still available to buy. You can buy online or from the ticket office.
