Information for Reds Fans Heading to Chesterfield

7 August 2015

Barnsley fans planning on travelling to Chesterfield for this weekend’s League One season opener are reminded that the fixture is a sell-out for away fans.

Barnsley FC has sold the entire 1,976 seat allocation for the game, which kicks off at the Proact Stadium at 3pm on Saturday. 

No further tickets for away supporters will be available.

Barnsley fans are urged not to travel to the fixture if they do not already have a ticket. There will be an increased police presence in Chesterfield on the day and British Transport Police are also providing resources to this fixture as well as intelligence officers from South Yorkshire Police.

Superintendent Graham McLaughlin, who is leading the policing operation, said: “We want people to enjoy this event and indeed the whole match day experience. Derbyshire police are well versed in policing high level football events. I would remind fans that any disorder will not be tolerated.

“Anyone who causes trouble or is excessively intoxicated will be removed from the ground or barred entry in the first place. If necessary we will arrest offenders and we will seek Football Banning Orders where appropriate.

“This will be the first fixture where the new Body Worn Video cameras will be used by Derbyshire officers."

Please be advised that in the interests of public safety it may be necessary to delay the departure of Barnsley fans out of identified exits. Any disruption will be kept to a minimum. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
