We have a small designated Family Area in the North Stand for home supporters. However we try and encourage a family atmosphere in all areas of the stadium with the West and North stands being most suitable.
To help us ensure a welcoming atmosphere within the Visitors section we would advise family groups to request tickets from your club towards the front of the South stand in Rows A-J
The seated bowl, concourses, staircases, toilets and hospitality areas are all smoke free, and there are designated smoking areas as follows:
West & North Stand - Smokers are permitted to leave by way of reversible turnstiles at Gates 1-6, five minutes prior to half time. A steward will issue a pass-out ticket stating the gate number and date. Spectators will be able to return through the correct turnstile by giving up the voucher to the turnstile operator. The turnstiles will be closed five minutes after the start of the second half. No further re-admission will be permitted.
East Stand - Smokers are permitted to smoke outside Gates 7 and 8, within the secured compound, at a period of time after kick off as determined by the Safety Officer. This would normally be about 15 minutes after kick off.
