Dear all – At last we have been given the green light to watch live football again by the Government and the FA. As you may have read there is a strict capacity of 600 supporters for this match.
League and Cup matches going forward:
Supporters who have attended a BSFC home fixture already this season:
- We already have your “track and trace” details – you do not need to pre-book (but it is preferred – just name / number of tickets required and names of guests)). Simply turn up to the Health check station at either turnstile A (Town end) or turnstile E (Airport end).
Supporters who have not attended BSFC this season:
For all BSFC home fixtures all attendance will need to be logged for track and trace purposes. What we need you to do, before 9pm Friday 18th, is to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
- Your name,
- Contact details (email is fine but add phone if you prefer),
- How many tickets you are requesting,
- Names of your guests (it will be your responsibility to contact your guests should there be a need in the following 21 days).
- Conformation that you (and your party) are COVID-19 symptom-free – please check your party before you leave for the ground.
- Whether you wish to sit or stand.
We will allocate tickets on a “first-come, first-served” approach and will advise you if you have not been successful (only should the current Government driven capacity of 600 be exceeded). We will have a list of names at each turnstile to check as below.
Match day process
On the day please arrive early as we have no real idea how long it will take to “process” everyone.
- Queue (following social distancing rules), there will be a station before the turnstile to check you and your parties names (substitutions are allowed but not wholesale please), ensure that you sanitise your hands, take your temperature and ask you all to confirm that you are symptom free.
- Pay and proceed through the turnstiles. Both turnstiles accept cash or contactless payments.
- Once in the ground please make your way, following the signs to your chosen (and allocated) area. It might be numbered seats in the stand or the area behind a goal.
- We are not adopting a one-way system at this point but will have “give-way” signs at pinch points around the ground – please respect these.
- We expect each party to respect “social distancing” around the ground and when queueing for burgers or drinks.
- Masks are optional – but we would prefer you to wear one – especially when queuing.
- The Clubhouse will be open and operating a one-way system – you will enter by the door next to the burger van and exit on the far side of the Mitre suite.
Hopefully these “rules” are logical and self-explanatory. We are in the spotlight and doing our best to ensure a safe and compliant return to “normal” football.
Your understanding and ongoing support is important to us.
