It's a busy time coming up at the VBS Community Stadium, with three consecutive home games coming up, and tickets are now on sale for all three, and bookings open for the pre-match meals.
On Saturday we are at home to Mansfield Town in League Two, next Wednesday we entertain Chelsea Under 21s as we start our bid to repeat last season's run in the Papa John's Trophy, and on Saturday week we are at home to Harrogate Town in the league.
Tickets for all those games are on sale by clicking here and then choosing the game that you wish to by a ticket for. Alternatively you can look in at the club shop between 10am and 12 noon on weekdays from tomorrow, Tuesday 23 August. For the two league games, prices are £20 for adults, £14 for concessions and £6 for juniors, with free admission for children aged 12 and under if bought with an adult or concession ticket. There is a £5 increase for a seat, and remember that there is also a £2 increase for adult and concession tickets bought in person from the ticket kiosk on the day of the game. That increase does not apply to tickets bought on line, even on the day of the game.
For the Chelsea game, admission prices are £12 for adults, £7 for concessions and £3 for juniors, with free admission for children aged 12 and under if bought with an adult or concession ticket. Stand seats are £2 more. The additional £2 increase for tickets sold in person on the day of the game will NOT apply for this game.
As this is a cup tie season tickets are not valid and everyone will need a valid match ticket to enter the ground.
For all three games, away supporters have their own link to buy tickets for the visitors' accommodation at the Collingwood end and these are being made available through the away club's website. Links can also be found below.
We will have our usual pre-match lunch prior to the games against Mansfield and Harrogate, with the MBA Lounge open at 12 noon and lunch served from 12.30pm. We also have a pre-match meal before the Chelsea game, with curry on the menu, when The MBA Lounge will open at 5.30pm and the meal will be served from 6pm. For the two Saturday games the price for a two course meal plus coffee is £20 (£10 for children aged 14 and under), and for the Chelsea meal is £15 (£7.50 for children). Bookings can be made here.
The deadline to book for the Saturday lunches is 12 noon on the preceding Thursday, and for the Chelsea meal is 9am on Tuesday 30 August.
