Bury Football Club is run by volunteers and owned by its supporters. Even if you aren’t one of the many volunteers who are assisting with our matchday operations this afternoon, you can play a part in its success.
Here are just a few things that you can do which make more of a difference than you might realise.
1. Don’t turn up if you don’t have a ticket. Online ticket sales will end at Midday (12noon). The club will then announce if pay on the day is guaranteed, if you’re planning to attend this afternoon we encourage you to purchase a ticket to avoid disappointment. Click here to purchase one.
2. Park considerately. The car park in front of the stadium is not available for supporter use, other than for people with blue disability badges. Volunteers will be helping manage the car park. Off-street parking is available but be mindful or the streets closest to Gigg Lane which have parking restrictions on a matchday, and be considerate to residents when you park in residential areas.
3. Go to the right turnstile. Please head to the turnstile allocated on your ticket. Season Ticket holders will be in the South Stand. Please look out for signs and volunteers who are there to help to ensure you go to the right place and help anyone struggling.
4. Have your ticket ready showing the QR code. You can present your QR code on your mobile phone or print it off at home, both will work as long as it is clear. You can only use it once on the day so if you share it with someone else who goes in first it won’t allow you in.
5. Behave responsibly. This is a high-profile game with a significant security & media presence. Help us succeed by following the rules around alcohol consumption, be patient with volunteers and stewards and don’t engage in anti-social behaviour described below.
6. Don’t litter. Every piece of litter needs to be cleaned up afterwards. If you leave litter behind that means extra work for a volunteer. Please use the bins provided or even better take your litter home with you so others don’t have to.
7. Help if you can. You will see people staying behind after each game to work on the stadium. Join in if you can. Even five minutes spent cleaning the area around where you sit makes a difference.
There are still tickets for Sunday’s game against Preston North End, get yours HERE!
