Supporters can use either based on the weather!

Where is the nearest cash machine?

Are flags allowed into the stadium?

Larger flags and banners must be inoffensive, non-political and be supported by a valid fire certificate and anyone with one should contact so we can advise the Safety Officer and stewards.
