Guide To Using New Electronic Entry System At Deepdale

2 August 2018

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Entry for Preston North End matches at Deepdale is now via the club’s new electronic entry system, installed during the summer.

We have produced a short video to assist with speedy access for games which can be viewed by clicking on the video above. Alternatively, please read the guide below.

Season Cards

If you are a season card holder, you will have received your card already loaded with all home league games on it. You will need to bring the card to every home game.

To enter the stadium, walk to the turnstile and present your card to the reader, you can then push the turnstile and enter.

You can only enter the stadium once for each game with a card – anyone who tries to use a card more than once with see the reader flash red.

If you are unable to enter the stadium, assistants with PDA readers will be present to assist.

You card shows your row and seat number and you should use the seat purchased to watch the game.

Member Cards

Member card holders need to purchase their tickets match by match. This can be done in person, at the Deepdale ticket office, over the phone on 0344 856 1966 and online at

The most efficient and quick way to do it is online, which can be done on desktop, tablet or mobile.

Once you have purchased a ticket for your chosen fixture, it is loaded straight onto your card. You will also receive an email with confirmation and the details of your stand, row and seat number.

You then enter in the same way as a season card holder, presenting your card to the reader and entering through the turnstile. Once again, a card can only be used once, any attempt made to enter twice on the same card, will see the card refused entry.

Matchday Tickets

If you do not possess a member card – which are still available free of charge from the club’s ticket office – you can purchase a normal matchday ticket, which includes a barcode.

Barcodes are presented to the reader the same way as a season or member card, with supporters entering in the same manner. Again, paper tickets can only be used once.

Corportate Season Cards

Corporate season card holders will use one of our corporate entry pods housed at all our hospitality entrances.

Please present your card to the reader to allow entry into your chosen lounge or executive facility.

Any problems, stewards will be on hand in all corporate entrances to help with your query.

We look forward to welcoming all supporters to Deepdale for what we hope will be an exciting and entertaining 2018/19 season.

If you have any further queries, please contact the ticket office on 0344 856 1966 or email

Thank you for your continued support.
