    How Darlington FC online ticketing works

    once your ticket purchase is complete you will get a confirmation email with one barcode per ticket purchased. Each barcode will be scanned as you pass through the turnstiles. Please either retain each barcode on your phone or print them out. Either option will work.#

    Any fans found purchasing an incorrect ticket type i.e. an adult purchasing a child ticket, or failing to provide proof of concession will be refused entry and no refunds will be given. ID will be requested by DFC turnstile operators.

    Full ticket terms & conditions can be found HERE.


    A second Chester FC supporters bus is now running to Darlington. The cost is £30, and the buses leave the Leap76 Stadium at 9.30am. Call 01244 371376 or visit the Ticket Office to book.


    On site car parking is available for away fans. Darlington FC are expecting demand for the car park to be high for this fixture so buying in advance is strongly recommended. You can purchase online at a cost of £5 per car.

    If you are a Blue Badge holder please email to make enquiries about reserving a Blue Badge space.

    There will be a catering truck at the away end to provide hot and cold drinks plus food for all supporters. Unfortunately due to segregation access to the clubhouse bar for away supporters is not possible on this occasion.

    Turnstiles will open at 1.30pm ahead of the 3pm kick-off. Programmes (£3) and 50-50 tickets will be available to purchase once inside the ground.
