Here’s a reminder of our stadium entry guidelines, security checks will be completed ahead of you accessing the turnstiles.


Love Football, Protect the Game

A message from The Premier League:

As we approach the exciting season finale, people must know that the pitch is for players and the stands are for spectators. It is against the law to enter the pitch at any time and anyone who does so is liable to face a ban and police action.

Everybody should feel safe at football but pitch invasions endanger everyone because it’s impossible to tell the difference between celebration and an attack. Entering the pitch could also result in club penalties so do not spoil it for your fellow fans.

Let’s protect each other, your club and the game.

You can read more information about this initiative here.

Lap of appreciation

There will be a post-match lap of appreciation following Sunday’s game.

The players and management will leave the pitch after the final whistle and return approximately ten minutes later and fans will be able to acknowledge their efforts during the season.

Although Sunday’s game is not our last home game, the club are conscious that this may be more convenient for many of our younger fans, than after Wednesday evening’s match against Manchester City.

We hope as many of you can remain after the final whistle against Southampton to show your appreciation for Roberto De Zerbi, his staff and the players as a record-breaking season draws to a close.
