Old boys versus the new kids on the block, fan-owned fever hits Hereford on saturday where there’s an almost certain guarantee every spectator at this pre-season friendly will be a part-owner of a football club [*].
Hereford FC v FC United of Manchester
Saturday 11 July 2015 – kick off 3pm
Edgar Street Athletic Ground
Hereford HR4 9JU
Info for travelling FCUM fans:
It is important to note that the income that FC United will receive from this match will be derived solely from the admission revenues from visiting supporters. It is therefore crucial that FC United supporters follow the following arrangements for the fixture.
The match will be ‘pay on the day’ for FC United fans. Although Hereford FC are selling tickets in advance to home supporters, for whom the game is all-ticket, FC fans should only buy their ticket on the day of the game.
Supporters will gain entry on the day by purchasing a ticket from the ticket office which is near to the away end. The route to the turnstile passes the ticket office from main car parks and the office is also close to the bar.
Standing and seating accommodation is available. There are 400 seats available in the top tier of the away stand and 200 standing below. There are at least 600 spaces available for travelling supporters. This may rise to a maximum of 680 depending on the capacity confirmed by a safety certificate which is due to be granted soon.
Supporters who require disabled facilities should contact Hereford in advance to make themselves known by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with their requirements.
Ticket prices for the match are priced as follows: –
£6 for adults
£4 for concessions
£1 for under-16s.
There is an official FC United supporters coach travelling to this match. It’s £20 for adults and £10 for children. Full details and how to book can be found here.
To repeat, FC United supporters are requested only to buy a ticket on the day and not before. Although Hereford fans can buy tickets in advance, this match is not all-ticket for FC United fans. The cashless turnstile system being operated for this game is something we have experienced in the past at other clubs like Kings Lynn.
[*] We know Hereford is not as yet an officially designated fan owned club, but they’re getting there, and should be given every encouragement to take the next step. Come on you bulls!
