Colin Bell Stand Development - Level One
Due to the ongoing Colin Bell Stand development work, supporters are unable to walk freely along the Colin Bell Stand Level One concourse from North to South and vice versa.
It is important that supporters enter the stadium using the turnstile that is closest to their seat and does not require them to walk along the concourse adjacent to Blocks 125, 126 and 127 as access at this point is no longer available.
To assist with this and ensure that you can enter and exit the stadium correctly to access your seat safely, please click here. We thank all supporters in advance for their support and co-operation.
