LIONESSES: NEED TO KNOWS

5 April 2019

Swindon Town is delighted to welcome fans of the Lionesses to the Energy Check County Ground on Tuesday.

We’ve just got a few things that supporters will need to know before heading to SN1 for the second part of Phil Neville’s side’s #RoadToFrance.

We would like to wish everyone a safe and happy evening at the CG!

 

  • We would advise all supporters to arrive at least an hour before kick-off to enable a smooth entry into the County Ground, and ensure supporters are not late to take their seats due to our bag search policy

 

  • The club would ask all supporters to avoid, if possible, bringing a bag to the ground unless absolutely necessary. The maximum dimensions of a bag that will be permitted into the stadium will be 55cmx40cmx25cm. All bags will be checked by our security outside the ground and tagged.

 

  • Fans attending the game who are situated in blocks AW1, AW2 and AW3 will enter the ground from the Stratton Bank entrance which can only be accessed on foot by:
    • From the club shop: Walking round from the Don Rogers Stand
    • Straight up Shrivenham Road and left at Mitchell Cycles back towards the ground.
    • If you’re coming from St. Joseph’s College, you will need to turn left into Octocal Way, left into Shrivenham Road and rightat Mitchell Cycles towards the back of the Stratton Bank Stand.
    • You will need to enter via turnstiles on the Stratton Bank.

For questions and directions, contact your nearest steward or matchday guide who will be able to point you in the right direction.

 

  • Supporters can check their match ticket against our stadium plan to familiarise themselves with the layout of the County Ground

 

  • Please check to see whether your ticket is a print-at-home or being delivered to you ahead of the day and make sure you bring your print-at-home ticket and have it readily available.

 

  • Those with group bookings should arrive before 18:00 on the night to avoid delays to their entry to the ground.
