Matchday Guide | Stevenage (H)

1 March 2024

Sponsored by

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

Unite For Access

This is our designated Level Playing fixture, with a host of activities across the day to highlight our efforts to make football as accesible as possible. This includes a free B1 blind football taster session on the 3G pitch opposite the SRP Stand from 1-2pm. Our DS Active team will also be presented to supporters as part of a half-time parade, while we will draw attention to various activities through our social media across the day.

University of Lincoln Fan Village

For those looking to relax and enjoy the matchday atmosphere, there is a wide range of food and drink options in the University of Lincoln Fan Village - including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options.

Tipsy Imp will provide a wide range of premium beers and ciders. A variety of soft drinks are also available across the Fan Village.

The Imps retail unit will also be in operation, providing supporters the opportunity to kit themselves out with our home, away, third, goalkeeping and warm-up ranges.

The Red Imps Community Trust will have their stall including old programmes for sale. 

Family activities

Poacher's Den is City's family-friendly area which is open to supporters of both sides ahead of games at the LNER Stadium.

Based at the north end of the GBM Stand and accessed via Sincil Bank, there is now a pool table, putting green and speed stack challenge. A new TV has also been installed for those wishing to play FIFA on the PlayStation.

Poacher's Den is just one of the free activities in place at every home match, with free children's football sessions on the 3G pitch opposite the SRP Stand from 12.30pm every Saturday - there is no need to book on, simply turn up from 12.30pm. Please note that Poacher's Den closes at 2.30pm so everyone can get to their seat in time for kick-off.

This is all in addition to the Xbox, table tennis, fussball table and other fun activities at every game.

 
 

Supporter liaison officers

Our SLO team will be around the stadium before and during the game, look out for them or our 'Here To Help' team - they will all be clearly identified. We have a matchday familiarisation opportunity for any supporters who are new to the stadium - this is free and there is no need to sign up, simply head to the ticket office for 1.30pm.

Alan Long, who heads our SLO team, also guides you through what a matchday looks like in this welcome video below.

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 12noon-2pm, 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 dlo@theredimps.com.
