17 March 2023

Sponsored by

Ahead of the visit of Peterborough United on Saturday afternoon, we are able to provide supporters with a guide to plan your visit to the LNER Stadium.

Supporters are reminded the fixture will be played at 1pm and has been brough forward following the advice of Lincolnshire Police.

John Jennison tributes

City will use the match to pay tribute to former club president John Jennison who recently passed away. Supporters are invited to join players and staff in a minute's applause before kick-off. Please get to your seat in good time before the game to take part in the tribute.

University of Lincoln Fan Village

A variety of different food options will be available for supporters of both sides from 10:30am. Coddy Cones, Curry Jacks, Yellowbelly Sausage, Wildjacks and Barbell Burger will all be present supplying their locally-sourced delights.

Tipsy Imp will provide a wide range of premium beers and ciders.

Another new addition in the Fan Village is an Imps retail unit. Following a recent retail survey, supporters requested additional retail options around the LNER Stadium so the club and Elite Pro Sports have teamed up to make this happen.


The retail unit is stocked full of replica kit, Formation gear, hats and scarves ahead of this weekend’s fixture and beyond.

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 ticket office and club shop will be open from 9am until 1.15pm and after the full-time whistle until 5pm. Gold memberships are available to purchase up until 12noon and again after the game until 5pm.

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 as early as possible so we can prepare your card for collection.

Travelling supporters can purchase tickets from the away ticket office window next to the club shop before the game - these must be bought from the ticket office before the game.

The Foundation will have activities including an inflatable football challenge in operation before the match in the University of Lincoln Fan Village.

Poacher's Den is situated at the north end of the GBM Stand facing Sincil Bank. Players not in the matchday squad will be in Poacher's Den from 12pm to play FIFA 23.

Players will also be in the club shop at this time to meet fans, pose for photographs and sign autographs.

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 until 12pm, 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.

Former Players Association guests

He featured in every game of the Football League Cup run in 1967-68 when the Imps reached the fourth round and finished the season as leading scorer with 14 league goals plus another three in the League Cup. 

Mark Hone was a midfield player who signed for the Imps from Southend United in the summer of 1996 making his first team debut when he came on as a substitute at Torquay United on the opening day of the season. Mark made 53 Football League appearances with a further 13 appearances in cup games during his two seasons at Sincil Bank. His son Danny also played for City making them among the few father and sons to have both appeared for the club in the Football League.

Phil Neale was a member of the Imps hugely successful 1975-76 team and went on to make over 350 first team appearances during his 11 seasons with the Imps. Phil combined his football with a career as a cricketer. He briefly played for Lincolnshire in the Minor Counties Championship before joining Worcestershire.
