The Family Zone opens at 1.30pm on a Saturday matchday and at 6.30pm for an evening fixture, providing a fun place to meet new friends and play games ahead of the big match action.

The Zone is open through to half-time and with staff in place to keep an eye on things, it gives a safe and secure environment where children of all ages can relax.

We have Xbox gaming facilities, pool, bar football, table tennis, plus plenty of activities for children of all ages.

And you can look forward to a visit from some players, and Olga the big fluffy fox, ahead of the game!


Also for our younger fans:

Pop into the Blues Store - there's loads of little keepsakes to take away.

If you see Olga walking around, inside or outside the ground, make sure you say hello and get a selfie. 

Do the same with the players when they arrive ahead of the game, over in our Fan Zone on the west side of the stadium (just after 1pm).


Contactless payment:

We’re delighted to confirm that we have contactless payment, with the cash payment option reduced to one till per refreshment point.

We hope this provision enhances your matchday experience.
