General Info

Maidstone Supporters

Welcome. We hope you enjoy what is a big day for our club who play in the SCFL Premier League. There is no forced segregation in the ground – however for your enjoyment we have allocated the goal to the right as you come in as the “Maidstone End”. Please enjoy our hospitality.

We ask that you purchase your ticket online, arrive early, if coming by car – park in the designated car park, buy raffle tickets, and enjoy the afternoon – and may the best team win.

A reminder there is an hourly bus service (No 2) from outside the ground to Shoreham where there is a mainline train station and buses along the coast.

Timings

Gates open 12.30pm for a 3pm ko. We encourage you to arrive early to make it easier for us to get you into the ground. 

Security

This match is run under the rules of the FA Cup. Alcohol must not be brought into the ground. We have professional SIA Stewards who will ask to look through bags. Please be understanding – we have to follow the rules. We will also be looking for flares and other pyrotechnics. We are in continual contact with our local police. 

Pre-Paid (Online Tickets)

This will be the first gate as you approach from the school side.

Thank-you for purchasing your tickets online. It has made it far easier for us to plan this event. On the day can we ask you:

  • have the QR Code already displayed on your phone as you approach the gate.
  • where you have purchased multiple tickets on one account – can each member of your party have the tickets either on their phone, or printed out.

 

Tickets on the Day

This will be at the usual gate, next to the clubhouse. You will be filtered into separate queues for cash and card. 

If you can – please bring cash. We can take card payments but cash will keep the queues moving more quickly.

  • Supporter Bar and Food – in the gazebo (blue)
  • Supporter Tea/Coffees & Food – alongside pitch (purple)

Ticket Prices

These are:

  • General Admission £10

For the FA Cup we need to account for all persons entering the ground. There are additional costs. including professional stewarding, that are required to ensure we all have an enjotable afternoon. This is reflected in the increase in match prices.

Whilst we have not greatly increased prices we do encourage you to purchase raffle tickets, there are cash and meat prizes!

Season Tickets & MatchDay Cards

The FA Cup is run by the Football Association and Season Tickets and MatchDay cards cannot be used.

Bikes

You can push your bikes into the ground but we advice you to lock them. You can leave them behind the home goal (nearest the school). No bikes are to be ridden in the ground.

Well behaved dogs on a lead are permitted, but be aware there will be large crowds moving around and your dog may feel happier at home. Any problems and we may ask you to take your dog out of the ground.
