Key messages
Alcohol can only be consumed sat down and with orders taken where you are sat. This means you can’t drink alcohol in the SMRE, Paddock areas or main stand seating.
We are re-opening the function room and we are also putting tables in the North and West Stands to ensure that all those who want a drink can get a drink (even if it’s not necessarily where you’d like to drink it)

Bring a Face Mask for walking through indoor spaces (including Ticket Office).

If you have any symptoms of Covid – please stay away from the stadium

Transport – no shuttle bus

Turnstiles – 1 and 4 open at 13:30 – 13:40

Car park – available at Broadhurst Park (£5). St Matthew’s car park is not open.

Stadium – Mainstand and SMRE are fully open. The North Stand and West Stands but with numbers limited to the number of table spaces (see F & B below).

F & B
Some big changes here so please read carefully.
Easy ones first:
Kazbar, SMRE and the Sweet Stall all selling what they usually sell.
Main function room – only available if pre-booked. Open from 1:00pm and closes after half-time. Full bar and serving pies, peas, gravy and chips. We have tables of 5 or tables of 2 available. Table service for food and drink. Please call the office on 0161 769 2005 to book a table. Enter through the main reception to get your wristband.

SMRE. – open from 1:30pm and last orders at 6:15pm. Table service of food and drink. No drink available from the bar itself. Face masks must be worn unless you are sat at your table.
North stand – tables of 4 available. Wristband system in operation to ensure social distancing. These will be distributed by the North Stand steward. As these tables are outdoor, we can have mixed groups. Table service of bottled beers available as well as pies. Tables available on a first-come-first-served basis. Last orders at 4:30.

The office remains closed for non-matchday services.

The above is not ideal but we are trying to provide enough spaces to drink for those who want to drink. What is really clear is that no-one can drink standing up so we ask for your co-operation and understanding to ensure that this doesn’t take place.

If supporters don’t abide by the new regulations and attempt to take drink into the other stands, we risk having to stop all alcohol consumption on match days and even potentially a further capacity cut.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us continue to offer you a match day bar.

Club shop – open from 11:30am until 3:00pm and then after the game from 4:45pm until 5:15pm.
