Fan Safety And Experience Message

4 October 2017

The Club would like to clarify our position for supporters who sit within the Co-Op stand.

Due to the capacity and flow issues, we are required to restrict some movement in the Co-Op stand in order to negate the risk of overcrowding.  

As such the following conditions have been put in place:


  • Those with tickets in the Upper Co-Op are permitted to transfer to the Lower Co-Op via the transition gates for the purpose of using the facilities only. This is permitted pre-game and at half-time but will be restricted at the discretion of the stadium management team within the second half. Those who do transfer to use the facilities are required to keep their ticket on them in order to transfer back to their seats once the facilities have been used.
  • Those with tickets in the Lower Co-Op are unfortunately not permitted to enter the Upper Co-Op at any stage. This is to ensure that the maximum capacity within this area is not exceeded. We apologies for any inconvenience caused by this restriction.


With this, the club are aware that a small minority of fans are regularly transferring to the Lower Co-Op for reasons other than accessing the facilities (particularly towards the closing stages of games).  The club kindly ask fans to refrain from doing so as should this continue to occur this may lead to us having to regrettably lockdown all transition between the upper & lower tiers.

Chief Executive Liam Scully said “We are hoping to find the right balance of keeping all of our fans safe as well as opening up further facilities to those in the Upper Co-Op who may not wish to use the Red Imp bar. Ultimately, we enter this arrangement trusting in the intentions of our fans and hope our requests are respected in order to ensure a safe and enjoyable match day experience is had by all”.
