Food offerings…

We will be serving our usual selection of pasties, sausage rolls and other snacks across our kiosks.

You'll also be able to try an alternative food selection with pizza from kiosk six in the Don Rogers Stand.

Our sweet cart will continue to operate from inside the Don Rogers, and Kos Gyros, located adjacent to the club store, will be offering Greek street food too.

Please be aware these are all cashless though, so it’s card payments only.

Pre-match...

Swindon Town is a proud to be partnered with Her Game Too, who work tirelessly to eradicate sexism in football.

We want the County Ground to be a safe and comfortable environment for everyone to come and watch football, and nobody should feel afraid or be subjected to abuse, whether male or female.

If you experience or witness any incidents of sexual, racially motivated, homophobic or any other kind of abuse, please report it to us straight away by speaking to one of our matchday stewards so they can take immediate action.

You can also contact Her Game Too via their number on our posters displayed around the ground for more information or to escalate a report further.

Abuse of any kind will not be tolerated here. We’re a family, and that’s important to us.

Fan safety at the County Ground...

We want everyone to get behind the team, make some noise and enjoy watching The Robins play in a safe environment here at the County Ground.

We’ve been made aware of a few incidents in the Town End at recent home games where both adults and young children have been injured during goal celebrations.

We certainly don’t want to hinder the passion you as fans show at each SN1 fixture and we’re proud of our support, but would like to issue a polite reminder to ensure we try and keep gangways clear and just be mindful when the action gets underway.

This will ensure everyone, especially young people and our more elderly fans who might be frail, can enjoy games without fear of being hurt unintentionally.

We as a club are taking active steps to reduce the risks by providing better signage around the terraces and bringing in additional staff.

Our stewarding and security teams will continue to do their best to manage this too, but we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the issue and ask you all to be mindful and respective to others.

As always, thank you for your support.


Half time events

Our Elite Under-12 girls from the Community Foundation will take to the field, followed by our Under-16 Academy team, who will be presented with a trophy at the interval on the County Ground pitch after being crowned South West Youth Alliance League champions.

Fundraising…

The Swindon Food Collective are back tomorrow fundraising for their great cause.

They are an independent charity that aims to help people across the town and surrounding area who are suffering from financial hardship and finding it difficult to provide food for themselves, their family or dependants. 

If you can, please spare any loose change you might have, either before the game or at the interval to keep driving them forward.

Thank you.

Car parking...

There will be NO parking available on the day at The County Ground.

As usual, we’ll have several customer care stewards and some friendly faces around the ground to help and assist you should you need anything.

We look forward to seeing you.
