Important Update regarding FC Halifax Town Fixture

In a change to advertised entry arrangements, Harrogate Town supporters will be able to purchase tickets on the day from The North Gate Turnstile.


Harrogate Town v FC Halifax Town
Monday 17th April - 15:00 

This match is no longer All Ticket.

Harrogate Town supporters can now purchase tickets on the day, paying by cash at The North Gate Turnstile. Away fans must still purchase their tickets in advance via FC Halifax Town.

Managing Director Garry Plant commented:

“We’ve worked closely with all the relevant authorities on this one, and we believe that together, we can manage the fixture safely and effectively. It has therefore been decided to reverse our initial decision to make all supporters purchase their tickets in advance, and will now accept cash on the day from Harrogate Town fans.

“The fixture will still be segregated, and the safety of all supporters will always remain our main priority, hence the robust security presence which will be visible inside and outside the ground. However we also feel that by giving matchgoers the option to pay on the day, we will maximise the attendance and improve the atmosphere”

“The game itself is going to be huge, we all know that. Halifax Town have been great in getting tickets to their passionate and loyal fans, and this will continue to be the process required for any away supporters who wish to travel. In terms of effectively managing the safety of supporters, this process has worked well.”

“The game itself is a Yorkshire derby and falls on a bank holiday, so we are expecting a great turn out regardless of the entry arrangements, but we obviously want as many Harrogate Town fans in the ground as possible”

“I appreciate that some supporters may question the decision to now revoke the all-ticket status, however I’m sure everyone would agree it’s better to make the decision now, rather than stubbornly uphold a situation which could prove detrimental to the team, the club and the fans”
