Ahead of the visit of Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday evening, we are able to provide supporters with a guide to plan your visit to the LNER Stadium.

University of Lincoln Fan Village

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

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.

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.

Family activities

The Foundation will have activities in operation before the match on the 3G pitch outside the SRP Stand, in Poacher's Den and in the University of Lincoln Village. 

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 11am, 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

Pre-match remembrance

Supporters are asked to get to their seat in good time to take part in pre-match commemorations. The coronation of King Charles III will be marked with a playing of the national anthem before the club's annual tribute to the 56 lost in the Valley Parade tragedy - including Bill Stacey and Jim West from the Imps family.


Our Academy's U17 Floodlit Cup winning side and U8s will take part in a lap of honour, while the new intake of scholars will also be presented to the cowd.

Post-match celebrations

Supporters are asked to remain in the stands after the final whistle to allow the club to acilitate a number of Player of the Season presenations which will take place on the pitch. The players will leave the pitch at the final whistle before quickly returning for the presentation and a lap of appreciation.
