The prayer rooms will be open 90 minutes before kick-off through until full-time.

Flag Display

Flags will be available on the concourses of the Alan Kelly Town End, the Bill Shankly Kop and the Sir Tom Finney Family Stand for supporters to take up to their seats.

All fans are encouraged to take part in the displays, however it is essential all flags are returned at the end of the game to where they were picked up from.

Fans who have left the ground with any of the flags in any previous fixtures are also kindly asked to return them to Deepdale.

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.

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.
