Entry to the stadium for our game on Sunday is unaffected by the Commonwealth Games.
Due to the current national terror threat level, there will also be searches on admission. We may also ask to search your bag. We’ll be as swift as we can while completing our searches, but please allow some extra time for this to take place and co-operate with our security team.
The matchday operation will be badly hampered by the Commonwealth Games being staged in the Arena-this includes parking, signage and branding around the stadium, plus logistics of preparing for the event e.g. supplies. Dave Boddy released a Club Update addressing this.
We appreciate fans for their understanding on this – the Commonwealth Games arrangements are beyond the control of the Football Club and we, and the Arena, will both be working hard to make these matchdays as normal as possible for our supporters under these circumstances.
Car Parking is badly disrupted by the Commonwealth Games, with Car Park A and B being unavailable. Alternative arrangement is being established for seasonal bookings
To arrange off-site vehicle parking for this game.
In all car parks, please obey the instructions of the car park stewards – vehicle movement is limited 1 hour before kick-off, with all on-site roads blocked at least 1 hour before kick-off.
For issues regarding on-site vehicle parking, please email email@example.com
