Preparations for Norwich Game - updated detail

Sunday, July 12 2015

Hitchin Town FC is both delighted and honoured to be welcoming a Premier League team in Norwich City to celebrate our 150th anniversary of football in Hitchin, in a Canaries v Canaries showdown. This game will take place on Tuesday 14th July 2015, kick off 7:45pm. Gates open from 6.30pm.

In preparation for this game, we must both observe and respect the fact that we are hosting a Premier League team, and therefore we must take certain measures to ensure both the smooth accommodation of Norwich City and also the safety and security of players, officials and spectators alike. We will be employing additional stewarding to assist us with this.

We also point out that the proceeds from this game will be allocated as per all other fundraising activities for the 150th year, which is: partly donated to the club andpartly donated to our chosen charities, and we have taken this into account when clarifying the arrangements for this game:

Access to the ground

Entry to the ground for all paying customers will be via the turnstiles on Fishponds Road and will be £10 Adult, £6 Concession (Over 60s) and Free for all aged 16 and under. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age where this might be in question, so we strongly advise that you carry this proof if you feel it might be necessary,

Complimentary Tickets

There will be no complimentary tickets or free entries granted to this game other than:

  • Match officials and their guests

  • Norwich City officials

  • Hitchin Town officials

  • Accredited Press Officials

  • Accredited Photographers

  • 150 Sponsors

In all cases the Club will ask the above parties to confirm their attendance at the game at least 48 hours in advance. No agreed complimentary entry will be granted where the Club has not been advised in advance. All other attendees turning up on the day at the game are expected to enter the ground and pay via the turnstiles.

Car Parking at Top Field

Parking at Top Field Car Park will also be restricted as follows and only to the following parties:

  • Match Officials and their guests

  • Norwich City Officials not travelling by team coach

  • Hitchin Town Officials

  • Hitchin Town Players

  • Hitchin Town Match Day Helpers

  • Proceed Archiving Solutions: Sponsors of 150 year anniversary

It should be noted that this is subject to space availability, and that the Car Park will be closed when space has run out, and by 6:30pm at the very latest. Therefore early arrival at Top Field is strongly recommended. Please note that everyone who does park their car in the Top Field Car Park will not be able to gain exit from it until 30 minutes after the game has ended at the very earliest.

However, we have just secured extra overflow parking on Butts Close for Tuesday evening. We express out thanks to North Herts District Council for their consent to this.

A charge of £2 for parking on Butts Close will be made. All profits from this will go to the 150 fund beneficiaries (Hitchin Town FC and our two chosen charities, BBC Children In Need and Letchworth Garden House Hospice).

Inside the ground

  • Pitch Side Access will be granted only to photographers who possess and can evidence the correct Public Liability Insurance for them to carry out their photography. No other Pitch Side Access will be granted for photography during the game.

  • Access in the ground will be restricted or prohibited in some areas Ė particularly in the seated and tunnel areas, and behind the dugouts. These areas will be appropriately stewarded to ensure the safety of all.

  • The Canary Club will be open before, during and after the game.

  • Alcohol and Smoking. No alcohol will be permitted in the ground, and no smoking will be permitted in the ground for this game. This is in compliance with FA rules governing games involving FA Premier League teams. However, for the purpose of this game,we will be adjusting the barriers and entry points so that the Canary Club will be inside the perimeter of the ground. So although spectators will not be able to drink alcohol in sight of the pitch, once having paid to get in they will be able to access the Canary Club for a drink and re-enter the ground prior to kick-off.

  • Additional toilets and food outlets will be provided as to what is normally available. Disabled toilets will be available in the Canary Club.

TV preview

ITVís About Anglia sent their sports reporter Donovan Blake to Top Field last night to do a feature on our 150th anniversary and the Norwich game. He interviewed Roy Izzard and took plenty of shots of the ground. Donovan then went to the Arena to interview Mark Burke and Charlie Horlock.

It is expected that the report will hopefully go out Monday night on ITV Anglia between 6.00 and 6.30pm. Donovan will also come down on Tuesday to cover the game.

We look forward to a memorable occasion to mark a significant milestone in the history of Hitchin football, we hope you will too!
