Matchday Information: Banbury United (h)

    The Blues host Banbury United this weekend! Here’s all the information ahead of the game…

    Kick off at the Leap76 Stadium (CH1 4LT) this Saturday is 3pm.

    Do I need a ticket to attend the match?

    – If you are attending in the East Stand or West Stand, or you are an away supporter – Yes.

    In the above stands, matchday admission will not be available at turnstiles, meaning tickets will have to either be purchased online at or at the Ticket Office.

    – If you are attending in the Harry McNally North Terrace – No.

    This week, the operational capacity of the Deva Stadium has been increased to 4,361 with immediate effect following a mid-season meeting of the Safety Advisory Group (SAG).

    This will enable the club to give fans the option to pay at the turnstiles (card/contactless payments) for the Harry McNally Terrace on Saturday, with the remaining stands to follow from the next home fixture.

    At this stage, the stadium kiosks will not be reintroducing alcohol sales, however the club is exploring the introduction of a Fan Zone on matchdays, with a view to staging trial events in the near future.

    Supporters are though still advised to purchase tickets in advance via the below link.
