FC UNITED v HEREFORD FC - Match Arrangements

FC UNITED v HEREFORD FC - Match Arrangements

On Saturday 2nd March FC United welcome Hereford FC to Broadhurst Park, in the National League North kick off 3.00 pm.

This match is crucially important to our survival in National League North. Relegation is never confirmed until there aren’t enough points left to play for, so although we have stemmed the run of losses with two successive draws, we need wins desperately.

A win will rekindle hope all is not lost and perhaps put doubt into our visitors that they can be dragged back into the relegation dogfight.

THE MATCH IS SEGREGATED

Admission is by payment at the turnstiles which open at 1.30 pm.

FC United fans only should enter the ground via turnstiles 4-6 at the St.Mary’s Road end.

Hereford fans should enter via turnstiles 9 and 10 at the Lightbowne Road end.

Before the turnstiles open, FC United fans ONLY can gain admission via the main reception on production of your match day or season ticket or by cash payment of the match admission price.

For those supporters attending Course You Can Malcolm’s there will be an early entrance turnstile at the St. Mary’s Road End open from 1.00 pm.
