Important information for Sheffield Wednesday match

29 October 2021

There's a big crowd expected at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Saturday when Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors.

Kick-off against the South Yorkshire side is at 3pm in what is another standout game for Cheltenham Town in this season's League One fixture list.

Tickets are available to buy online up until midday on Saturday. If you want to save £2 on matchday prices then make sure you purchase before midnight on Friday.

The ticket office and Colin Farmer ticket point is open right up until kick-off.

There are no seat tickets left on sale however there are tickets available in the Speedy Skips Stand, Tunnel enclosure and Paddock.

With such a large crowd at the game, the club strongly advise supporters to arrive early to collect or purchase tickets. The advice is to arrive 30 minutes ahead of the game. Please arrive early to avoid queueing to get into the stadium with the turnstiles now operating on a cashless basis.

Fans with tickets for the Colin Farmer Stand will enter through the Parklands turnstiles due to the other turnstiles being used by Sheffield Wednesday supporters.

PRE-PAID TICKET COLLECTIONS

Pre-paid tickets for the Autovillage Stand, Paddock, Tunnel and Speedy Skips Stand can be collected from the matchday collection point at the Portakabin in the car park next to the bowling club.

Tickets for the Colin Farmer Stand can be collected from a new 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 this area of the stadium are sold out for Saturday's fixture.

Colin Farmer Stand - tickets for this stand are sold out for the game.

Terrace tickets - standing tickets in the Speedy Skips Stand, Paddock, Tunnel and Canteen enclosures will be on sale from the matchday sales point in the Portakabin 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 all day in the lead up to kick-off. Fans have until 12pm to buy online.

MAIN STAND WHEELCHAIR BAY

The club is currently in the process of constructing a purpose built wheelchair platform. This is due to be in place soon. Until the new platform is operational there is 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.

CAR PARK

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.

BARS

The main bar will be open before and after the match serving drinks and snacks - card payments will be accepted. Once again it has been extended into the car park to increase the space available.

Fans can also enjoy the popular new food offering in the car park - the Robins Retreat - which is open before the match and after the game.

Supporters on the Autovillage Stand side of the stadium will no longer be allowed to leave the ground at half time to access the bar or Robins Retreat. Re-admission is no longer in place to do this unless accessing the designated smoking area.

MATCH PROGRAMME

You can purchase a copy of Saturday's match programme from around the stadium at a price of £3.

COVID-19 MEASURES

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.

We are looking forward to welcoming supporters to the game and again strongly recommend that fans arrive early to avoid any matchday queues.
