Pre-Match Day Information

If you’ve purchased a ticket it will have been emailed to you already, so you can either print it out at home or have it scanned via your mobile phone at one of the entrances – you must bring one form of your e-ticket with you to the match.

Please read all of the important information that accompanies your e-ticket. It details how to use your e-ticket, which entrance of the Stadium you should arrive at and what’s expected of you at the match.

Access for this fixture is either at the Nevil Road entrance (BS7 9EJ) or the Ashley Down Road End entrance (BS7 9BU).

Please allow sufficient time to enter the Stadium. Queues are likely, plus bag searches will be taking place - be patient and please bear with us.

We’re Cashless!

Please be aware that ALL of the Seat Unique Stadium is now cashless, so bring along a debit or credit card for all food, drinks and merchandise purchases.

Beat the drinks queue with the Glos Cricket App
