Matchday Information: Scarborough Athletic (h)

    Chester are back in action this weekend in a big top seven clash. 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?

    Chester FC can this weekend introduce the return of card/contactless payments at the turnstiles for all available stands.

    Supporters can pay with contactless, chip and pin and Apple Pay and Google Pay for The Gary Talbot (East) Stand, Harry McNally (North) Terrace and Swettenham Chemists’ Community (West) Stand. Please note the relevant turnstile further down in this article.

    If you wish to pay with cash, you will need to buy your ticket from the Ticket Office before the game, however we advise arriving earlier than normal to reduce queuing times. Cash is not accepted at the turnstiles.

    The quickest and easiest way to buy match tickets is via our online ticketing platform at Online sales will now be available until kick off and you simply need to present your printed ticket or mobile phone to be scanned at the turnstile.
