AT present, we intend to have pay-on-the-gate facilities on match-day, but, with the clamour for tickets sure to maintain, there is no telling how long that situation will last.
TO avoid anticipated pressure on turnstiles, the Green Army is encouraged to give themselves plenty of time to get to Home Park, and to arrive earlier than normal.
