PYROTECHNICS & BEHAVIOUR
The club would like to remind supporters that carrying pyrotechnics into a football ground or using them is strictly prohibited.
Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.
We would also like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to go on to pitch at any time.
Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.
Supporters are also reminded that in line with legislation and the EFL ground regulations, the entire stadium, including the seating areas, concourses, stairways, turnstiles and toilets, is a no-smoking area. The use of electronic cigarettes in all parts of the stadium is also forbidden.
Supporters are also asked not to bring bags to the stadium. Where this is unavoidable, all bags will need to be searched before entry can be allowed. Items included on the EFL ground regulations that are deemed to be a potential risk, including bottles and aerosols, will not be allowed into the stadium.
In addition, supporters will not be allowed to record or live-stream any of the live match action. We have been reminded by the EFL of its obligations to prevent live footage of the game being stored, recorded or transmitted and stewards will take appropriate action if this regulation is contravened.
Due to the potential for congestion in the North West Corner after the match with people leaving the stadium for the same safety reasons, the ticket office will not open at all after the final whistle.
A reminder to all supporters that the road closure on Midland Road that was in place last season will continue for all home league fixtures for this season.
