Not Today or Any Day!

Throughout season 2021/22, the EFL will be promoting a new ‘Together Against Discrimination’ match day message which will see clubs across all three divisions adopting a unified position on a matchday reiterating that racism, discrimination and abuse is not welcome in our game or in our communities.

If you see or hear it, report it.

Download the free Kick It Out reporting App HERE.

Alternatively email report@kickitout.org to register your concern confidentially, or ring 0800 169 9414.

We also have a club number dedicated to the reporting of such instances - 07891 779 015.

All purchases will be cashless and the Horsebox Bar will be open from 1.30pm until after half time.

With the Horsebox Bar and Fellwater Coffee taking up their new positions, adjacent to our existing and fantastic food and ice cream outlets, it will give the area a ‘Food Court’ feel where fans can meet and enjoy some food and drink prior to heading into the stadium.

The addition of more tables and chairs, along with the increased presence of safety barriers, has made the Food Court a popular place to be.

Come along and give us a try.
