With a much larger than usual attendance expected for Saturday’s Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division Play-Off Final against FC United of Manchester, an equally much larger preparation of Keys Park has been required. After discussions with stadium safety personnel, the following details can be announced:
As mentioned in the build-up to the play-off semi-final, with play-off matches effectively being cup matches with a shared gate, league rules dictate that our usual family offers will not be available on Saturday. That said, individual admission prices will remain at the 2012/13 season rate.
Hednesford Town supporters will occupy the Main Stand, adjacent side terracing at the “Heath Hayes” side end of the stand and the Heath Hayes end terrace.
Entry for home supporters will be via turnstiles 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B & 4C.
FCUoM supporters will occupy ‘The Hednesford End’ terrace and stand, adjacent side terrace in front of the Club Shop and an area of the large Wimblebury side Terrace.
Entry for away supporters will be via turnstiles 1A, 1B, 2A & 2B.
It is planned to accommodate a FCUoM supporters coach and minibuses at the rear of the Hednesford end terrace. This will enable the shortest travel distance for them to enter the ground from coach to turnstile. This area can also take a number of supporters’ cars.
As the game is segregated, so are the bar facilities with home supporters occupying the Chase Suite and FCUM followers having access to the Strikers Bar. No crossover between bars will be allowed and both bars will be stewarded.
All alcohol will be served in plastic glasses (including bottled drinks and soft drinks). No alcohol or drinks are allowed to be taken from the bars onto the stands or terracing and no alcohol is allowed to be brought into the ground via the turnstile access.
