Following the latest government tier review, we can confirm that Swindon will remain in Tier 2 and therefore there will be no changes to the current attendance of supporters to the County Ground.
The announcement does however place several areas into Tier 3 which could affect some STFC supporters. The new Tiers come into force Saturday morning at 12.01am and therefore any supporters who’s registered address is in a Tier 3 area and have been successful in the ballot, will NOT be issued a ticket for Saturday. Some areas of note include Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Hertfordshire.
Please be patient with us whilst we work through the list of successful applicants to filter these Tier 3 postcodes out of the ballot. We hope to issue tickets to all supporters later this afternoon once we have finalised these latest changes.
The announcement also includes Bristol and North Somerset areas being downgraded to Tier 2, therefore any supporters who have registered addresses in these areas will now be eligible to apply for the upcoming games against MK Dons and Wigan. The ballots for these two games are now open online.
We would like to thank you for your patience and hope you can appreciate the constantly changing environment that we are currently in.
