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

Cashless Hospitality

Supporters in hospitality areas of the stadium should be aware that all lounges and executive boxes are cashless.

This means only card payments will be accepted, including Apple Pay and other contactless methods.

Half-Time Drink Tokens

Due to licensing restrictions, alcoholic beverages can only be served two hours prior to kick-off and alcohol then cannot be served between 12.30pm and 1.05pm. Alcohol can then be served from that point until ten minutes into the second half.

As per previous 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.

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.
