Notts' clash now all-ticket

STAGS' eagerly anticipated home clash with Notts County later this month has now been made all-ticket due to the current capacity restrictions at Field Mill.
The football club is still trying to get the capacity lifted above 4,684 for the visit of neighbours County on 20th October - but officials admit that an increase may not be in place before the 'derby'.

Mansfield Town had seen its capacity halved by Nottinghamshire County Council safety advisors after problems monitoring fans through the turnstiles at the home game against Chesterfield last month.
It means the Magpies have been issued just 955 tickets.

Stags' season ticket holders are guaranteed entry to the match, but all other supporters must pre-purchase a ticket to gain entry. There will be no cash turnstiles on the day.

Club officials say Stags Supporters Association members have until mid-day on Tuesday to take advantage of their priority purchasing scheme.

SSA members must produce their 07/08 membership card upon purchase.

All other sales will commence at noon on Tuesday and home supporters
can buy their tickets in person from the Field Mill ticket office.

Any supporters who would like to forward a request to purchase tickets can do so by fax on 01623 482495 or via e-mail on info@mansfieldtown.net.

Fans must leave a name, a contact telephone number and where they wish to sit in the stadium.

All such tickets should be paid for upon collection.

Office opening hours for the purchase and collection of the tickets are Monday-Friday, between 9am-5pm.

The club says it is talks with the supporters' groups to establish if and when any additional opening times are required.

No children under four years of age will not be allowed into the stadium and U12s must be accompanied by an adult.
