Ahead of the visit of Bolton Wanderers on Friday evening, we are able to provide supporters with a guide to plan your visit to the LNER Stadium.
City will be remembering Imps who have sadly lost their lives in 2022 at the final home fixture of the year.
The thoughts of everyone at Lincoln City are with the friends and families of the supporters and former players who passed away in 2022
John Reames Memorial Trophy
Friday’s fixture will see the John Reames memorial trophy presented to the winning side.
The Reames' family will be in attendance for the match as the club intends to mark a home festive fixture with the trophy annually.
University of Lincoln Fan Village
A variety of different food options will be available for supporters from 5:30pm. Coddy Cones, Yellowbelly Sausage, Barbell Burger and Curry Jacks will all be present supplying their locally-sourced delights.
Tipsy Imp are a new addition providing a wide range of premium beers and ciders.
Lincoln City Foundation will be running events for our younger fans and the Red Imps Community Trust will have their stall including old programmes for sale.
Supporters with a Gold+ programme subscription can collect their edition from the Red Imps Community Trust Stand in the Fan Village.
A variety of alcoholic and soft drinks are available.
The Foundation will have activities including an inflatable football challenge in operation before the match in the University of Lincoln Fan Village.
Audio descriptive commentary
The Imps provide a free audio descriptive commentary service for fans with visual impairments. Headsets and receivers can be collected from the ticket office before the game (from the SLO point 5-6pm, then from the ticket office desks). Fans are encouraged to bring their own headphones where possible to minimise the amount of equipment needed to be shared - the receivers have a standard aux output. Anyone with questions about the service are asked to contact disability liaison officer Heidi Langham on email@example.com.
We've loved seeing the pictures of families enjoying matchdays at the LNER Stadium - why not share your images of the day with us on Twitter using the #ImpsSelfie hashtag. If you get a picture with Poacher don't forget to tag him on Twitter at @Poacher_The_Imp!
Tickets can be purchased from the ticket office before the match but we strongly recommend purchasing online at eticketing.co.uk/imps.
Digital season tickets have been sent via email, physical cards from last season will remain valid so long as you have not moved seat or price/membership category.
You do not need a physical card, but if you need one they can be produced for £3 - we recommend emailing firstname.lastname@example.org as early as possible so we can prepare your card for collection.
Travelling supporters can purchase tickets in the away end - these must be bought from the ticket office before the game.
There are a number of car parking options for supporters attending games at the LNER Stadium this season - click here for details.
Our recommended car park is the South Common - click here to reserve your space.
Stagecoach have added an additional bus service for midweek matchdays to help supporters get home safely after the game.
The bus will depart 15 minutes after the full-time whistle from Gowt’s Bridge bus stop on the High Street, which will enable people to walk down Scorer Street to catch it.
The route will take supporters via Swanpool, Birchwood, Doddington Park, North Hykeham and Brant Road, with normal cash fares available as well as the special offer to gold/gold + membership holders.
There is also a cycle rack at the stadium for people who wish to bike down to the game.
