Play Safe 16_9.jpg

There will be lots happening in and around the stadium in support of The FA’s Play Safe campaign, which raises awareness of safeguarding provision across football.

Supporters will be able to scan QR codes around Deepdale, via posters, the matchday programme or in hospitality, which will take them to a short and free safeguarding course. You can also access the course by clicking here.

Manager Ryan Lowe will wear a Play Safe pin badge, while the captain will wear a designated Play Safe armband.

Half-Time Drink Tokens

As per recent fixtures, drink tokens for half-time alcoholic refreshments will be in use in the Alan Kelly Town End, Invincibles Pavilion and Sir Tom Finney Stand.

Supporters can go to any kiosks in these stands at any time prior to kick-off, and pre-order and pay for their alcoholic drinks for half-time. Fans will receive a token in return at this point, which they can present at half-time at the designated collection points.

Supporters in the Invincibles Pavilion can collect from Kiosk 7i, located on the right side of the concourse near the Kop.

There are two collection points in the Alan Kelly Town End: collection point green, which is located next to the central stairwell, and collection point yellow, which is located at the beer bar between the two double kiosks.

Fans in the Sir Tom Finney Stand can also get their drink tokens, either from collection point purple, which is located at the south side of the stand, or from collection point white at the north side.

Refreshments Service For Disabled Supporters

Those supporters situated on the disabled platforms, and disabled fans on the front row of each stand, are able to place orders before the match for half-time.

Members of staff from Heathcote&Co will come to these supporters to place orders which will be delivered shortly before half-time. Please note, this service excludes alcohol sales due to no alcoholic beverages being allowed inside the stadium bowl.

Please also note, only cash payments can be made for our refreshments service for disabled supporters.

U11 Turnstiles

As per recent fixtures, supporters with U11 season cards, member cards or match tickets will need to enter through specific turnstiles at Deepdale.

This has been introduced in an attempt to alleviate the misuse of this age band by older supporters, with some fans so far this season attempting to enter the stadium with the significantly lower-priced U11 tickets.

As a result, U11 turnstiles have been introduced and these will be the only location where U11s will be able to enter the stadium with a season card, member card or match ticket, while those attending with an U11 can also enter through the same turnstile. Full details on this can be found here.

Reporting Abuse, Discrimination & Anti-Social Behaviour

Supporters who witness or hear any abuse, discrimination or anti-social behaviour while at Deepdale can report the incident using the club’s text service.

Fans can text 66777 and messages must start with ‘PNE’ followed by details of the incident. An example of how to use this service can be found below:

“PNE I’m in the Alan Kelly Town End, row 10, seat 34. Male sitting directly in front of me shouting racist abuse.”

All incidents can be reported to the club by email on enquiries@pne.com, but fans are strongly advised to use this text service at the time to allow these matters to be dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible.
