The big derby: essential information

17 March 2018

Mansfield Town have received the following guidance from Notts County ahead of today's big local derby at Meadow Lane...

More than 4,000 Stags supporters will be in attendance and they are advised of the following information:

Tickets 

Under no circumstances will any tickets be sold to away supporters on matchday. 

Please do not travel to the match if you don’t have a ticket. 

Please arrive early 

Due to the high volume of away supporters, queues at the turnstiles are likely to be very busy close to kick-off. 

Please, therefore, arrive early if possible. 

Turnstiles open at 11.30am and refreshments are available inside the concourse. 

Entering the stadium 

Stags supporters will enter the Jimmy Sirrel Stand through turnstiles 21-29. 

Please be advised that search detection dogs will be stationed outside turnstiles around the ground. 

Supporters are asked to retain their ticket after entering the stadium to help them find their allocated seat (see below for more information). 

Please sit in your allocated seat 

The away end will be very busy and it is therefore essential supporters sit in the seat shown on their ticket. Fans are also asked to take their seat as early as possible.

Clear signage will be on display and stewards will be on hand to help you find your way. 

Sales of alcohol

No alcohol will be available for away supporters to purchase after kick-off. 

Soft drinks and light refreshments can be bought from the concourse kiosks at half-time.

Please note – Notts’ supporter bar, the Broken Wheelbarrow, will not be open to away supporters. 

Police updates

 @NottPolFootball’s Twitter account will be providing live updates on matchday and in the build-up.

 Road closure

 County Road (behind the away end), Iremonger Road and Cattle Market Road will be closed from 2.30pm – 3.15pm to allow for the safe dispersal of supporters. 

Parking is not suspended on Iremonger Road, however no vehicles will be able to exit any car parks on that road from full-time until it is deemed safe. 

Exit from Cattle Market Road on to Incinerator Road will be prevented for approximately 20 minutes following the game’s conclusion.
