Following the announcement this week of new government requirements to enhance measures against Covid-19 infection, the Club has revised our procedures to ensure they are fully compliant.

With effect from our home game against Cheshunt on Saturday, we will be making the following changes and would ask all supporters to be aware of them and help us to continue making the Camping World Community Stadium as safe a venue as possible.

  • We fully support the NHS Test & Trace process and as the Government has now introduced the NHS app, we will be switching to this for those who need to supply their contact details. You do not need to supply details if (a) you are a season ticket holder, or (b) you have purchased a ticket for the game in advance, as we already have your details. Anyone else will need to either use the NHS app (via the displayed QR code), or provide their contact details in paper form.

 

  • As before, the clubhouse bar will have a one-way system in operation, and anyone who buys a drink is expected to leave the clubhouse as soon as they have been served. From Saturday, everyone in the clubhouse (supporters, staff, officials, volunteers, players etc.) must wear a face covering at all times, unless you are exempt on medical grounds. Please make sure that you bring a mask with you, if you plan to come into the clubhouse.

 

  • The clubhouse bar and all facilities will be closing at precisely 10pm every day in accordance with the new Government requirements.

 

IMPORTANT: We currently have a problem with our broadband supply at the stadium and unfortunately, this is having a detrimental effect on our payment card and till system. This has caused the queues in the bar and food outlets you may have experienced recently, and we sincerely apologise if you have been inconvenienced by this.

Until the fault is fixed, may we please ask that, if possible, you bring cash to the game to help us reduce the queues as much as we can. To reassure you, for maximum safety, our staff will be sanitising their hands after every cash transaction. We also strongly suggest that you try and visit the food and bar outlets during the game rather than at half time, as they tend to be less busy then.

We hope these new arrangements do not in any way spoil your enjoyment of the game, and thank you for your support in making our stadium the safest possible environment for everyone.

We are updating the Club’s Risk Assessment, FAQ sheet, and other documents to incorporate these changes and these can be found here.
