Important information for all supporters ahead of Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup tie against Bradford (Park Avenue).
The turnstiles at Gateshead International Stadium will open from 1:30pm, with home fans and away fans both situated in the Tyne and Wear stand, although segregation will be in place.
Away supporters will enter through the North turnstiles and are seated to the North of the Tyne and Wear stand. Away supporters will have access to the North concourse for refreshments.
Tickets for the fixture can be purchased online via Seatedly and can also be purchased via cash or card on the turnstiles from 1:30pm.
We recommend both home and away supporters purchase tickets online to minimise queuing times at the turnstiles on match day, and are advised that paying by card on the gate will be the quickest method of payment.
A reminder that season tickets do not grant access to Emirates FA Cup fixtures and season ticket holders must purchase tickets separately for this fixture.
Tickets are priced at:
£10 Concessions (Over 65’s, Students, Under 18’s, Armed Forces & Emergency Services)
Refreshments will be available to supporters on Saturday with the cafeteria area, concourses and Mick Thornton Suite open for food and drink purchases, operated by Gateshead FC.
The Mick Thornton Suite will open at 1pm exclusively to online ticket purchases, and will then be available to access by supporters purchasing on the day from 1:30pm.
Home supporters can purchase alcohol from the South kiosk or Mick Thornton Suite, though should be advised that seating in the Mick Thornton Suite is limited and will operate on a first come, first served basis.
Due to Saturday’s game being an Emirates FA Cup fixture, alcohol is not permitted in the stands and stewards will be on duty to ensure no alcohol is taken to the seating areas.
The concourse area and Mick Thornton Suite will serve food and drink before kick off and at half time.
The local authorities advise supporters attending Gateshead International Stadium to follow COVID-19 measures, encouraging:
– Community testing schemes for those attending
– Practicing social distancing
– Use of face coverings while moving around the stadium
– Individuals who feel unwell to remain at home
