This weekend at Deepdale we’re expecting an increased crowd for a top of the table clash, which could mean a few new visitors or returning old visitors to the stadium.
A lot has changed in the last 12 months, so here’s what you have missed and some advice if you are coming back to us for this game…
Firstly, you can have a bet on the game and other sporting events once again. We had been without a betting partner for the last three seasons, but are delighted to have new partner Betsid inside Deepdale in all four stands – home and away – and in all hospitality areas. You can also collect your winnings from the collections window next door to the ticket office after the game, or from their Church Street shop in the City centre.
We have new catering partners, The Villa At North End, with good quality and service as well as some fantastic offers for those who want a bite to eat or drink – check out our story for one of this weekend’s special offers elsewhere on PNE.Com.
If you are a family or are bringing a young child, check out the Family Stand, in the south end of the Sir Tom Finney Stand. This has had a complete makeover for this season, with a specially dedicated family room, with Play Stations, face painters, plus visits from players and the Deepdale Duck.
Also in this area we have our unique post box allowing young fans to write letters and post them to the players and management, with a reply guaranteed if you include a reply address. We also have special photo opportunities, including your chance to be ‘part of the team’.
The Family Stand also offers a special ‘snack box’ with food for the young fans, including a special collectable player card and some lucky fans might get a signed one! Free posters to stick your cards to are available from the Family Room on the concourse. Make sure you book for the Family Stand when you buy your tickets to try these facilities and to take advantage of the £5 U16 pricing when accompanied in this area.
If you are buying tickets online for the game at www.mypne.com and are experiencing any difficulty, it could be that you are using an older version of internet explorer. We advise using the most up-to-date version, or using the Google Chrome browser and you should not experience any problems buying.
Tickets can be bought online until midnight on Friday and collected from the collections window, to the left of the Sir Tom Finney ticket office, on the day of the game.
Those wanting to purchase over the phone should call 0844 856 1966.
There are three ticket offices open at Deepdale on a matchday; the Bill Shankly Kop ticket office, located next to the away end entrance, for sale of away tickets only – away fans should note this is a cash only facility.
There are also home ticket offices in both the Invincibles Pavilion and the Sir Tom Finney ticket office where you can buy tickets for any home area at all – you don’t just have to buy Pavilion tickets from the Pavilion ticket office and Sir Tom Finney or Town End from the STF ticket office!
If you fancy enjoying the game from the warmth of one of our lounges, just contact the commercial department in advance on 01772 693311 or 693304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org; we have many different types of offering at varying prices suitable to friends, families, businesses or just those who want to keep warm!
Don’t forget to interact with us, whether you’re at the game or not; we’re on Twitter - @pnefc – and would love to hear from you if you are coming back to Deepdale and would like to know about your experiences, so get in touch.
Enjoy the game!
