The City Supporters Trust Board have met to discuss plans for City supporters services for the upcoming FA Cup 1st Round fixture against Leyton Orient.
As announced by the club the match will take place on Sunday 4th November at 3pm. ‘Home’ Supporters will be situated in the usual main stand (Stagecoach Stand) and the terracing behind the goal at the far end of the ground (Liberty Insurance Stand). All the details can be seen at http://www.gloucestercityafc.com
The Supporters Trust have all the usual matchday services, just multiplied to ensure you still get to do everything you want on the day.
The Club Shop
The Supporters Trust Club Shop will be open at the same time as the turnstiles and will be located in the usual ‘shop room’ adjacent to the bar & car park. (look out for the sign !) It will be selling all the usual stuff, replica shirts, cooking aprons, pens, scarfs, mugs etc…
As well as the usual shop there will be 2 additional stores located inside the stadium, so if the shop is busy, sold out , you forget or you dont have time to get to the shop you can still purchase City merchandise to support the team on the big day ! The 2 stores will be inside the 2 turnstiles open for home supporters and will have a stock of Scarfs, t-shirts, hats & special items to create atmosphere for the big match, all of course at the usual low, pocket money prices !
Official Match Programme, Cash Draw & Golden Goal
The matchday programmes will be sold as usual at the match for the same usual price of £2.They will be available from our programme sellers as you come through the turnstile at the 2 ends of the ground. For this match as the shop is expected to be busy the match programme will NOT be sold in there.
The Tigers Cash Draw will out in full force at this match & with a big crowd expected the prize pot will potentially be massive ! The tickets will be as usual priced at 50p per ticket and you will be entered in to the cash draw to win a 1/3 of the overall prize find ! The previous game vs Chippenham a crowd of 680 made the cash pot just over £50 ! Tickets will be sold by the cash draw sellers as you enter the ground and will be sold to home & away fans so expect a big prize !
Finally the Golden Goal will be sold at this fixture as usual and will cost £1 per ticket. The Golden Goal between the stadium will be split between the 2 home stands & the away section, giving you more chance to win ! Again as you enter the ground you will see the golden goal ticket seller !
Home Supporters Coach Travel From Gloucester
Thanks to City consultant, Colin Peake & Rover Coaches we will be running at least 2 coaches from Gloucester to Whaddon Rd stopping at several places. The coaches will take different routes to maximize the area covered across the City. Full Details for these coaches & the routes will be posted on the Trust website. The coach which will take the same route back to Gloucester after the game will cost just £5, family prices can be negotiated with the coach organizer. £5 from Glos to Chelt Return, not bad, Right ? !
TigersRadio & TigersTV
Unfortunalty as this game is a FA Cup 1st Round proper tie there are certain media rights & duties held by national broadcasters such as BBC Radio & ITV which have to be upheld, whether you are an official club media or not so there will be NO TigersRadio live commentary or TigersTV match highlights for this fixture. We believe ITV local news & possibly ITV FA Cup coverage will have some kind of highlights for the match. You will of course be able to keep up to date with the days events on the trust twitter & official twitter @GCAFCSupporters & @GCAFCOfficial
For more details on which sides of the ground are open for home supporters, car parking details & more matchday news check out the official news on the Official GCAFC website at http://www.gloucestercityafc.com
