Family Matchday Guidance

15 January 2019

Sponsored by

If you’re a family visiting the Energy Check County Ground for the first time, or need a refresher, we’ve got all the information you need here.

MY FIRST GAME

If you have a child under the age of 14, and you’re heading to your first match with them – we want to know because we’re just as excited as you are!

We have an initiative called ‘My First Game’ where we try and make your first experience of football, or football at SN1, as special as possible.

We’ll take you pitchside as the players warm up and you can sit in the dugouts, meet our mascot Rockin’ Robin, and see matchday from the closest possible perspective. And it’s all completely free…

To find out more, visit the ‘My First Game’ page.

FAMILY TICKET BUNDLES

We offer a wide selection of family ticket bundles and around the ground here at SN1 and we have moved our designated family area to the Don Rogers Stand. This will be our designated family area as of the start of the 2019/20 season, however, you can still purchase ticket bundles in either the Arkell’s or the Don Rogers Stand.
