Saturday 16th August 2014

FOLLOWING on from meetings with Police Scotland and West Dunbartonshire Council regarding our Category “A” matches taking place at Dumbarton Football Club during the 2014/15 season we would now like to provide you with advance information concerning the arrangements that will be in operation for ALL games involving teams classified as Category “A” (i.e. Hearts, Hibs or Rangers).

• Match Tickets: All Category “A” games will be ticket only, with Dumbarton FC only selling tickets to their own fans. Should any tickets remain unsold the final opportunity to purchase would be between 10.00am and 12 noon on match days. This arrangement would also be available for season ticket holders who have still to exchange their voucher for their ticket. However, after this time there will be no ticket sales or voucher exchange, nor will it be possible to collect any type of ticket. .
•Car Parking: For Category “A” match days there will be temporary car parking restriction in place in respect of Castle Road and the surrounding area. Parking will not be permitted in Castle Road and part of Castlegreen Street utilised to accommodate buses and mini-buses. Car parking within the stadium will be available until the road is closed one hour before kick-off; if you wish to make use of this facility you must follow the instructions of the car park stewards who will be directing you in order that we can accommodate as many cars as possible.

•Access Arrangements: Only persons in possession of a valid match day ticket will be permitted access to Castle Road or allowed entry within the perimeter around the stadium. Season Ticket holders will need to exchange the respective voucher from their season ticket book to obtain their match day ticket. The club will make arrangements for the collection and sale of these tickets and will announce details on the website but where possible every effort will be made to have tickets available for collection at the home game prior to the Category “A” fixture. Dumbarton Football Club will not sell any tickets for the West section of the Stadium (Away supporters) the respective visiting club will handle the selling of these tickets and will notify the arrangements to their supporters via their website.

•Egress Arrangements: Please note that cars will not be permitted to leave the stadium for 20 minutes before or after the final whistle, this is to reduce the risk arising when pedestrians and vehicles are in close proximity. Also to assist with the egress from the stadium grounds stewards will be in position to direct supporters to the route they should follow.

Dumbarton Football Club and Police Scotland would like to thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation with these arrangements which will contribute greatly in creating a safe and secure environment for all supporters attending these matches.

Thank you
David Douglas
Safety Officer
