WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE SPECTRUM
Because of Covid-19 and the resulting FA Guidelines things will seem a little different at the ground. We hope that it won’t detract from the enjoyment of being back watching football. Here are some key points on what to expect when you arrive, and around the ground:
Track and Trace: Details will be taken inside the turnstile on arrival, and so please arrive at the ground a little earlier to allow time for this information to be taken. Guildford City use the ‘evePASS’ app which can be downloaded free from:
Spectators without smart phones can still provide track and trace details manually.
Restricted Capacity: Under FA guidelines the crowd capacity is restricted to 150. Should we reach this we will have to close the turnstiles accordingly. The match viewing area will be on the top deck of the stand.
Social Distancing: We ask that guidelines be observed at all times. There will be a two-metre distancing rule in all queues for the turnstiles, bar and tea bar.
One-way systems: There will be one-way systems in place around the ground. This will be clearly signposted.
Hand Sanitising: Facilities are available with sanitising stations placed around the ground.
Seating: The seating area will be stewarded and guidance will be given on suitable spacings.
Standing: Please stick to the 2m distancing guideline at all times in the stand.
We trust that everyone will abide by the current restrictions and guidelines to maintain a high level of safety for all. Hopefully this will not impact on enjoyment of the game and your time within the ground. As the phased re-opening continues we hope that these guidelines will be lifted and we can experience a return to a more normal match day experience.
