It's located next to the ticket office on the Autovillage Stand side of the stadium.

You can also shop online or browse items before seeing them in person.


Clubs have been asked to remind supporters that football is governed by specific laws that can lead to criminal convictions.

For example, it is against the law to run onto the pitch, even when celebrating a goal, to throw objects inside a stadium and to bring smoke bombs or flares into a stadium.

Police forces and clubs are required to enforce this football legislation and supporters could find themselves facing severe penalties if found guilty. Clubs can also face hefty fines or increased costs for policing and stewarding if their supporters are found to be in breach of the law.

We ask everyone to enjoy the match but please avoid creating problems for either themselves or the football club.


Fans are advised to take a lateral flow test before attending, to wear face coverings in the correct areas and to not attend if suffering from any COVID-19 symptoms.

A 'Red Zone' is in place and this can only be used by specific personnel. This means that the pitch, tunnel, patio area and players entrance are all strictly out of bounds.

Social distancing from players and coaching staff is also to be maintained.

The club's Safety Certificate has been updated for this 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
