The club is to continue its journey towards becoming an increasingly cashless venue in the weeks ahead.
Starting from the league fixture against Morpeth Town on Monday, August 29th, many outlets at 1st Cloud Arena will accept card payments only.
Cash will continue to be taken at turnstile 1 and all food and drink kiosks which are not located within the new stand. 50/50 tickets and programmes will also still be purchasable by cash.
Elsewhere, though, including all indoor bar facilities, only card payments – including contactless, Apple Pay and Google Pay – will be accepted, providing supporters with a simple and efficient purchase process when buying food, drinks and merchandise inside the ground, as well as tickets at turnstiles 2 to 6.
The club believes this will ease queuing across the venue and significantly ease the burden on internal resources created by the need to prepare for cash operations in the lead-up to games.
Cash will continue to be accepted at all outlets at the game against Gainsborough Trinity on Tuesday, August 23rd, but supporters are advised to prepare for the new operations to begin six days later.
Refunds for plastic cups will be made in cash at two designated kiosks, located in the two corners on the clubhouse side of the ground.
With immediate effect, meanwhile, including the Gainsborough match, supporters will no longer be able to pay for upgrades to sit in either stand at 1st Cloud Arena after the turnstiles have opened. Tickets for the stands must be purchased in advance of the game either online or through the club office.
The club thanks all supporters for their continued backing and understanding.
The above applies to matchdays and private functions held at 1st Cloud Arena.
