With the return of fans confirmed details of the plans at Nyewood Lane are now published. As the club had requested away games initially these wont come into effect until after the start of the season.
Bognor Regis Town FC has appointed Supporters Club Chairman Ian Guppy as the lead Covid-19 Officer and a team will be appointed soon to assist in making amendments to the ground and the process of attending games.
With the ever changing environment the dated risk assessment published is always subject to change in terms of becoming stricter or more flexible as government guidelines move.
At all times we are requiring the honesty and understanding of fans that if you have any signs of symptoms of Covid-19 you MUST NOT attend any games, no matter how important the games are (we understand that). We would also appreciate the fans understanding with any delays that may be caused entering or moving around the ground.
ENTRY FOR SPECTATORS – For convenience and to minimise cash handling, spectators may purchase match tickets in advance on line via the club’s website (www.therocks.co.uk). This is our preffered option as this will speed up entry at the main gate and minimise cash handling at the turnstiles.
Entry to the ground for online Ticket Sales is via the Nyewood Lane entrance only so the ticket can be scanned in.
The Sports Club entrance is still open for Cash sales only.
Season tickets can also be purchased via the online portal too.
Spectators are asked to assist the club in track and trace via the new NHS COVID- 19App - https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/nhs-covid-19 – this is a downloadable app and will be the UK's standard app for all check ins at many venues such as Sports grounds, Pubs, Restaurants and has a check in section on the app where you scan the code.
If you have purchased online tickets you are asked to still check in with the app.
If you are unable to log in via the app then there will be a track and trace form available for those without smart phones or whose phones are not compatible.
UNDER 16 SEASON TICKETS – For the first two games it has been decided to not offer this due to limited attendance and the uncertainty of how many fans that will be attending. Once we have gauged the uptake of ticket sales and passed the two test events the club will endeavour to get tickets available ASAP.
STEWARDING – Bognor Regis Town FC will provide matchday stewarding in the car park, and within the ground to ensure smooth undertaking of fixtures. Please respect their guidance and support.
CAR PARKING – There is no parking in the ground for spectators – please use the Sports Club. There will be no entry to the ground via car after 14:30 to allow fans to arrive and or the club to operate separate areas for online sales and cash sales at the turnstiles.
HAND SANITIZER - Hand sanitizer stations will be located on entry to the ground and the clubhouse, as well as soap water and drying facilities provided in toilets.
SOCIAL DISTANCING - All attendees will be asked to observe social distancing in line with government guidelines. It is the supporter’s responsibility to observe social distancing.
BAR AREA - The bar area will be managed by the staff at Seasons. This will be available pre-match, half time and full time. There are toilets in the bar. There will be clear guidance and signage for the safe use of the facility.
CANTEEN - There also a snack bar external to this which offers refreshments. Please note that to be served at the snack bar, customers must wear a face mask. Please observe social distancing at all times.
TOILETS - There are limited toilets within the ground. Please be patient and use a socially distancing “two in two out” policy. Remember to wash dry and sanitise your hands and dispose of waste in receptacles available.
Thank you for your Co-operation and enjoy your visit!
