After a two-and-a-half week break League One football is back at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium this evening when Cambridge United are the visitors.
The kick-off time against the U's is at 7.45pm and you can check out some useful information if you are attending this evening's fixture below with our match stadium guide.
It's possible to buy tickets for the game online in the lead up to tonight. We recommend leaving plenty of time to pick up tickets for the match or if you do choose to pay on the night with a reminder that the turnstiles are all now cashless.
PRE-PAID TICKET COLLECTIONS
Pre-paid tickets for the Autovillage Stand, Paddock, Tunnel and Prestbury Road End can be collected from the matchday collection point in the car park next to the bowling club.
Tickets for the Colin Farmer Stand can be collected from a collection point located just outside the Parklands turnstiles. We advise fans to arrive early to collect these as we are expecting this area to be busy in the lead up to kick-off.
Away supporters can collect tickets from the entrance to the Hazlewoods Stand where they'll be located during the game.
MATCHDAY TICKET SALES
The best and cheapest way to purchase tickets for all home matches is in advance of matchday. For those supporters wishing to buy on the day the following sales points will be open:
Autovillage Stand - seats for these areas of the stadium can be purchased from the ticket office.
Colin Farmer Stand - tickets can be bought on the day for the Colin Farmer Stand from a new ticket point outside the Parklands turnstiles.
Terrace tickets - standing tickets in the Prestbury Road End, Paddock, Tunnel and Canteen enclosures will be on sale from the matchday sales point in the car park.
Either cash or credit/debit card will be accepted. There will no longer be any payment accepted at the turnstiles.
The ticket office is open in the lead up to kick-off.
MAIN STAND WHEELCHAIR BAY
The club is currently in the process of constructing a purpose built wheelchair platform which will soon be in place. Until the new platform is operational there is a temporary wheelchair viewing area at the other end of the Main Stand next to the Prestbury Road End. Please note, however, that this temporary area is uncovered.
The main bar will be open before and after the match serving drinks and snacks - card payments will be accepted.
At the moment the club are currently working on developing the bar offerings throughout the stadium for supporters. Progress is being made to try and improve this moving forward.
Supporters will no longer be able to exit the ground at half time to access the bar.
Fans can also enjoy the popular new food offering in the car park - the Robins Retreat - which is open before the match and post-game too.
You can purchase a copy of the match programme from around the stadium at a price of £3.
The front cover of tonight's programme features Cheltenham Town Ladies players Sammy Hallsworth and Billie Haynes as a tribute to the progress made in women's football since the ban on the sport a hundred years ago this week.
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 face masks 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.
