COLFC are pleased to announce a home Pre-Season friendly against our friends from the Everton Academy who will bring a strong youth squad to the Berry Street Garage Stadium for our Pre-Season preparations.

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, attendance at this game must be limited to 200 paying spectators in accordance with the FA’s Phase One guidelines for clubs in the National League System.

In order to ensure that we successfully manage our game in Phase One (allowing us to move to Phase Two and 400 paying spectators at our next home game), the game must necessarily be made all-ticket and therefore we have had to make some hard decisions about how the 200 tickets will be allocated.

Our average home attendance last season was 389, so some regular match-goers will miss out on this occasion, but non-league clubs up and down the land with average attendances above 200 in Step 4 are in exactly the same boat.

From that 200 allocation, we have to make some tickets available to players families and Everton FC, so we estimate that there will be no less than 170 tickets available for purchase

Safety measures will be in place before, during and after the game, including temperature checks upon arrival at the ground and no cash being handled at the turnstyles.

After discussions, the Board of Directors have decided that the following criteria will apply:

Purple Package Holders

Anyone who has purchased a Purple Package in July or August and who wants a ticket for this match will be entitled to buy 1 ticket at either £8 for Adults or £4 for concessions as appropriate.

We estimate approximately 70 people will fit this criterion and a 48-hour period to purchase online will be made available to these members initially.

These members will be able to add any children who are also members of the club for free, but please be aware that a child whilst being free to enter the game itself, does count towards the 200 spectators total and there will be strict guidelines in place regarding social distancing inside the Berry Street Garage Stadium, so this perhaps may not be the best game to bring a child to.

Purple Package members will receive an email containing a link to purchase a ticket later this week.

Other Package Purchases and 2020/21 Season Members

Following the initial sale to Purple Package members, there will then be a further 48 hour online selling period to all other package holders and people who have bought or renewed their annual share membership in July or August 2020.

There approximately 120 members whom this criteria applies to.

These people will also be able to purchase 1 ticket at either £8 for Adults or £4 for concessions and will be able to add any children who are also members of the club for free, but please be aware that a child whilst being free to enter the game itself, does count towards the 200 spectators total and there will be strict guidelines in place regarding social distancing inside the Berry Street Garage Stadium, so this perhaps may not be the best game to bring a child to.

These members will receive a link to the ticket purchase software later this week.

General Sale

Following the initial online sale to the above 2 groups, there will then be a general sale online of any available tickets on a first come, first served basis, please watch our social media channels for further details if indeed we reach this point.

PLEASE NOTE

We appreciate that everybody will just want to get back to watching the Purps and some people may be miss out on a ticket this time and be disappointed, but there is no way of pleasing everybody in these Phase One circumstances.

It is vitally important that our club and indeed all Non-league clubs take this Phase One seriously in an attempt to show DCMS that we can be trusted to operate match days in a safe and secure manner, in order that we can move on to Phase 2 and a doubling of the crowd, before hopefully restrictions can be lifted completely and we can all return to pre-lockdown conditions, but for now we ask all Members and Supporters of COLFC to work with the club.

Due to NHS track and Trace requirements, there can be no transferring of tickets for this match. If you purchase a ticket for this game, only you will be granted entry to the ground – there can be no exceptions to this rule. If somebody else arrives trying to use your ticket they will be refused entry.

Temperatures will be taken before entry to the ground and anybody who’s temperature is outside normal ranges will not be granted entry to the ground.
