Segregation will be in place and there will be a police presence at the match.


FC United supporters will be able to gain access to the match by paying on the gate at the usual match admission prices of £10 Adults, £6 Concessions and £3 u/18s.

Admission will be via the turnstiles at the St. Mary’s Road End.

Stockport County will be allocated 750 tickets (Lightbowne Rd End together with a block of seats at the far end of the Main Stand.) Admission to the away end is ticket only and Stockport County will allocate tickets to their supporters accordingly.


FC United Supporters will be able to reserve seats in one block of the Main Stand on a first come first served basis, by calling the FC United office on Monday on 0161 769 2005. A maximum of 4 seats can be reserved per person. Those who have reserved seating need to collect a voucher from the FC United office accessible through the main reception on the day of the match. These vouchers will only be available until the kick off time of the match.


The match programme will be a reduced 16 pager and priced at £1.50


Due to FA rules, the sale of alcohol during the match and drinking in view of the pitch is prohibited.

Therefore the Main Stand Bar will only sell alcohol before and after the match. The SMRE Bar will sell alcohol before the match and at half time.

No alcohol will be sold in the away end.

The Main Stand Function Room Bar will serve hot food together with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks before and after the match. Alcohol will not be sold in the function room at half time but soft drinks, teas and coffees and food will be available.

Before the turnstiles open, access to the Main Stand Function Room Bar is via the main reception by payment of the match admission price.

The SMRE Bar situated under the St. Mary’s Road End terrace will serve draught beer and bottles before the match at half-time.

Under the Main Stand Food Bar will serve hot food prepared by our chef, pies from J W Buckleys and non-alcoholic drinks.

Burger vans will also sell hot food and non-alcoholic drinks.

Please note the Main Stand Bar and SMRE Bars are No Smoking Areas. Supporters wishing to smoke at half-time can do so in the designated areas in the corners of the ground.


We are still raising money for the club’s Development Fund as there are parts of the ground we need to complete. The quickest and easiest way is to buy a Pound for the Ground ticket at £1 each at the match with cash prizes on offer.


Shuttle buses will not be running on Tuesday night.

Supporters travelling from Manchester are therefore advised to catch the 181/182 bus departing from Lever Street or catch a tram to Newton Heath/Moston Metrolink followed by a 15 minute walk. Trains also run to Moston Railway Station from Manchester Victoria.


We would urge supporters to use the car parks we have available for a charge of £5.00 at the ground and for £3.00 at the nearby St Mathews School, only 3 minutes’ walk of the ground.

We are under a duty to ensure areas such as St Mary’s Road and the north of Nuthurst Road are not used by visitors to Broadhurst Park.
