All you need to know ahead of match versus Ipswich

25 January 2022

It promises to be another exciting midweek match tonight - and tickets are still available for you to join us!

The Dons host Ipswich Town (7.45 pm kick-off) with Robbo's boys bidding for a first victory in 2022 against a side chasing a play-off place. 

The atmosphere has been electric for our games under the lights at the Cherry Red Records Stadium and we are expecting more of the same tonight.

Guarantee your place now by booking a ticket online .

Tickets will also be available to buy on the night (adjacent to the club shop). 

With a big attendance expected for tonight's game, please get here as early as possible to avoid queuing to get into the stadium. 

How to access the stadium

The Cherry Red Records Stadium will open for home fans from 5.45pm and it is advised that fans arrive as early as possible. Away supporters can arrive from 6:15pm onwards. Supporters must enter the stadium via their designated entrance for their stand which is indicated on their ticket. Additionally, fans will be required to go through security where bags may be searched.

Below is a colour-coded map of the stadium entrances to help fans find their allocated point of entry.

Away fans can access the stadium by Gate 7, which is accessed via St Martin’s Way or Maskell Road.

Food, Drinks and Pub

Our fantastic food park (situated behind the South London Movers Stand) is accessible to all and offers several different types of cuisines from local food businesses.

The food trucks at tonight's game are as follows:

  • MYPIE
  • Polish Hot Dogs & Burgers
  • Dough Shack
  • Vegan Express
  • Naked Chips
  • Burger & Hot Dog Stand

Supporters are also permitted to bring water in a clear plastic bottle if they wish. However, no glass, cans, or metal bottles will be allowed. Thermos flasks are permitted.

The food trucks will open at 5.45 pm with the Phoenix Pub (By The Horns) opening at the same time and closing at 11.00 pm. The Phoenix will also be serving spirits. Please note that the full range of spirits will be available from after the final whistle until closing time at 11.00 pm. Pre-mixed cans will be available prior to the final whistle.

All fans will have access to food and drink concessions around the stadium including the food park behind the Movers stand. Unfortunately due to fire regulations, fans in the Ry and Movers Stands will not have access to the first floor concessions in the Cappagh Stand. As a result, all fans seated in the Cappagh Stand will need to show their match ticket or have their hand stamped in order to get back to the first floor concourse.

Covid-19 survey

We've had a great response from our supporters to our survey and this will continue tonight. For more infomation, please see our previous article

Parking

There will be no parking on site (accessible spectators will be given separate guidelines). We recommend fans travel to the Stadium by train, bus, or, if you are local, by simply walking to the ground. There will be no parking available at Garrett Business Park.

Cycle Store

The cycle store will be open tonight from 6.00 pm until 10.00 pm, located behind the Ry Stand. Please note that all bikes MUST be collected before 10.00 pm. There will be a steward at the cycle store, but fans will leave their bikes at their own risk.

Bags

To help reduce queues at checkpoints, we ask fans not to bring bags into the stadium where possible. If essential, then please only bring an A5 sized bag (21cm x 15 cm x 10cm) or a clear bag only. Large bags or suitcases (including cabin bags) are not permitted.

Cashless Stadium

We are currently operating a semi-cashless Stadium. This means that most of the Stadium will only accept card payments apart from the club shop and matchday magazine sellers. Fans who turn up on the day with only cash will be able to purchase vouchers in denominations of £10 at the matchday magazine stalls and the club shop, which can then be used to buy food and drinks in the concessions.

The Club Shop

The club shop will be open right up until 7:30pm before the game, but it will not be open after the game.

Reusable Cups

The club has implemented a reusable beer cup scheme to replace all single use plastic pint cups around the Stadium. Once fans have finished their beer, they are required to put these cups within the reusable cup bins located around the Stadium.

Matchday Magazine

The matchday magazine can be purchased for £3 at the club shop and also inside each of our four stands. Sellers will also be positioned outside the Cappagh Stand entrance and along Plough Lane.
