SUPPORTER GUIDANCE FOR THURSDAY

Tuesday 18th May 2021

DUMBARTON FC are delighted to welcome the return of a limited number of supporters to the C&G Systems Stadium following the move to Level Two Covid restrictions, as directed by the Scottish Government.

We are enormously looking forward to having our supporters back in the ground for Thursday’s decisive playoff final second leg at home to Edinburgh City, which kicks off at 7.35pm.

This will be the first time we have been able to have supporters in our stadium on a matchday for 443 days. It is a wait we will be delighted to end.

All supporters due to attend have been contacted by email with an allocated timeslot for entry. If you have registered your interest in attending, but have not received this email, then please contact the club as soon as possible.

We ask that fans enter via their allocated turnstile for temperature checking, and we will show you to your allocated seats.

We ask that you arrive during your allocated timeslot to ensure there are no delays and everyone is seated for kick-off. Please do not arrive earlier or later than the designated timing or we cannot guarantee entry.

We do apologise for the early timings but as you can appreciate we are working under restrictions and guidelines and wish to ensure the safety of all our supporters.

If you are unable to attend for any reason, please advise the club so we can reallocate your seat. You can do this by email to office@dumbartonfc.co.uk or by calling 01389 762569.

Below, we also publish the conditions of entry. All supporters due to attend on Thursday should have received these by email and we ask that you ensure you read them in full before the game.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the club by email to office@dumbartonfc.co.uk or by calling 01389 762569.
