Our Isthmian League Premier Division match on 20th October v Margate (7.45pm kick-off) is a limited capacity all-ticket match, which will take account of the experience of recent matches and of government guidelines. Although some specific adjustments may continue to be made in the light of any further Covid-19 announcements, Margate tickets are now on public sale.
You can buy your match tickets at https://shop.etfc.london/events . You may need to scroll down to apply for your chosen match and ticket type.
* Concessions includes students and over 65’s
** ID with proof of age may be required.
Match ticket applicants will be issued with a digital (quick response code) e-ticket which can be swiped at the gate on a mobile phone or be printed out for entry. Please note that an invoice will also be forwarded; this is not your ticket. If there are any issues with e-ticket delivery, please check your spam/junk folders before emailing email@example.com
There will be an opportunity to purchase a seat in the very limited accommodation in the main stand (£4). There will also be a limited opportunity to pay for, and reserve for collection at the turnstiles, a hard copy of the matchday programme (£2). If you are purchasing a Main Stand Transfer/and or a hard copy programme, hard copy printouts of the respective QR codes are preferred at the match. An electronic version of the matchday programme will also be available online for purchase in due course. #GoToTown subscribers will get their e-programme in the normal way. Season ticket holder arrangements will be notified via e-mail.
There will be a table service outside bar on a first come first serve basis. Drinks must be ordered and consumed at the table and cannot be taken away. Contactless payment will be accepted and tables will be cleaned regularly. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience whilst we adapt to these new ways of working. THESE ARRANGEMENTS MAY CHANGE IN LIGHT OF GOVERNMENT ADVICE.
As announced previously, the club have taken a number of comprehensive precautions to make the QEII Stadium safe, particularly with regard to social distancing. All spectators need to be fully aware that attendance at the match will be entirely at their own risk. You must follow government guidelines and self-diagnose before travelling to the QEII Stadium. If you, or any of your household, are experiencing any symptoms which may be related to Covid-19, you should not travel and you should follow NHS advice. At the Stadium you agree to respect others, abide with social distancing guidelines and measures that the club have put in place, and follow all advice given by ETFC stewards. This is very important as the club considers the possibility of increased numbers at future matches.
Please remember that the match day experience at the QEII Stadium will not be as supporters will remember! Following queuing in a socially distanced manner, you will have your temperature taken upon entry, you should listen to and act upon all advice before, during and after the match from stewards, club officials and via any tannoy announcements, as the club looks to do the right thing, incrementally, with the safety of all in mind. Certain facilities will remain closed or be limited, and further announcements on these will be made online and at the match.
There will be signage in place, and parts of the ground will be subject to a one-way system for additional safety. Toilets will be subject to social distancing measures. Spectators should come prepared for inclement weather as there will be a strict adherence to maintaining social distancing under the limited cover at the ground. Umbrellas are permitted, although you should of course bear in mind the need to avoid blocking other spectators’ view.
Finally, following recent government announcements the newly launched NHS Covid-19 app arrangements are due to be in operation. The NHS Covid-19 app has a feature that allows users to quickly and easily ‘check in’ to a venue by scanning a displayed code at the venue. The information stays on the user’s phone. If there is an outbreak associated with a venue, a message will be sent to the relevant app users with the necessary public health advice. This will help to avoid the reintroduction of lockdown measures and support the country to return to, and maintain, a more normal way of life.
The app is for smartphones and for over 16s only. Alternative track and trace arrangements will be made on the day for those aged 16 and under and for those without smartphones. Further background information on the newly announced arrangements can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/nhs-covid-19-app-launches-across-england-and-wales and specifically on downloading the app here: https://covid19.nhs.uk/
