Matchday guide: Oxford United (H)

7 January 2022

Sponsored by

Ahead of the Sky Bet League One fixture with Oxford United on Saturday, we are able to provide supporters with a guide to plan your visit to the LNER Stadium.

Covid-19 safety

There is no need to show proof of double vaccination or a negative lateral flow test to attend the game, although we ask supporters to be considerate of each other, players and club staff as we look to keep everyone safe.

Face masks are required by law in the ticket office and club store, but are optional in the indoor hospitality areas. Hand sanitiser will be available around the ground.

We would encourage supporters to come down to the stadium as early as possible to allow people to enter in the safest manner possible. Due to enhanced protocols and our desire to protect players from catching Covid-19 and putting any of our games at risk, we ask fans not to congregate outside the players' entrance or the tunnel.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 such as a loss of taste or smell, or a persistent cough, please stay safely at home and we hope you recover soon.

University of Lincoln Fan Village

A variety of different food options will be available for supporters from 12noon. Sausage Grill, Curry Jacks, Love Coffee, the Yellowbelly Sausage Company and the Barbell Burger Co will all be present supplying their locally-sourced delights.

Tension Twisted Realities will be showcasing their virtual reality headsets, while the Red Imps Community Trust will be present to discuss their community role.

A variety of alcoholic and soft drinks are available. The Fan Village will also be open at half-time for people looking for food or drink.
Family activities

Lincoln City Foundation will be running events for our younger fans based in the community hub in the Lincolnshire Co-Operative Stand. As well as a range of activities there will be the opportunity to play as your favourite team on Fifa 22.

There will be a bosu ball challenge, with a free session with our health & wellbeing team being awarded to the person who stands on one leg on the ball for the longest time. The health & wellbeing team will also be offering advice on how to make and keep healthy New Year's resolutions.

Make sure you keep an eye out for Poacher The Imp who will be around the LNER Stadium on the day - starting with the University of Lincoln Fan Village for selfies with fans! He'll make his way pitchside by 2.45pm.
