The football club would like to advise supporters that pre-turnstile spot-checks on tickets will be taking place at the Weston Homes Stadium for Sky Bet League One fixtures between now and the end of the season, beginning at Saturday’s fixture with Bolton Wanderers.
It has been brought to our attention that a minority of supporters have been fraudulently gaining access to the stadium via the wrong age category. The club advise supporters to bring with them a form of ID to confirm their age if they are purchasing tickets within a certain age category. (The onus is on the supporter to prove their age if challenged).
Any supporter who is challenged on their age and cannot show valid proof, will be asked to upgrade their ticket to the full match day price at the ticket office.
The club would like to reiterate that this is a small minority of supporters that are being challenged off the back of intelligence received in recent weeks.
Supporters who have season or match tickets in the Main Stand are also advised they will be able to use turnstile 11 or 12 as well as 9 or 10 from this Saturday’s game. Turnstiles 11 and 12 are situated on the corner at the London Road End. Turnstiles 7 and 8 will not be in use.
