Match tickets for Town v Ramsgate (FA Trophy, Saturday 31st October, 3.00 pm) and v Brightlingsea (Isthmian League, Tuesday 3rd November, 7.45pm) are now available via https://shop.etfc.london/events (£11 adults, £7 concessions (65 and over, students under 21) and £1 under 16s accompanied by an adult).
Both these matches are limited capacity all-ticket games, which will take account of the experience of staging recent fixtures and of government guidelines. There are some slight adjustments to previous matches, and further adjustments may continue to be made in the light of any further Covid-19 guidance. General season tickets are not valid for the Ramsgate match (but Gold #GoToTown subscribers can gain entry via the gate next to the turnstiles by presenting their season card or, if not collected yet, by giving their details to the steward on the gate). For the Brightlingsea league match, season ticket holders will not need to apply for a match ticket but will be able to gain entry with their numbered season card at the gate next to the turnstiles (or by giving their details if season card not yet collected).
When purchasing tickets via https://shop.etfc.london/events you may need to scroll down for a specific match. Ticket applicants will be issued with a digital quick response (QR) code e-ticket which can be swiped at the gate either on a mobile phone or on printed out paper. Please note that when you apply 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
For both matches 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 (£2.50 – please note the small increase which has been made to help cover matchday costs). If you are purchasing a main stand transfer/and or a hard copy programme, please remember to have the respective QR codes with you at the match. If preferred, you will be able to buy an electronic version of the programme via https://shop.etfc.london/ in due course for £2.
In line with government guidelines, the club will be operating an outside table service only bar on a first come first served basis. Drinks must be ordered and consumed at the table and cannot be taken away. Contactless payments or cash will be accepted, and tables will be cleaned regularly.
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 QEII Stadium you agree to respect others, abide with social distancing guidelines and measures that the club have put in place, and undertake to follow all advice given by ETFC stewards, officials and via tannoy announcements.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience whilst we adapt to constantly evolving ways of working, 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. 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. Please use the NHS Covid-19 app at the entrance if you have downloaded it.
