Ticketing Abuse Update

6 October 2021

A message from our Chief Operating Officer Stephen Hobin


I would like to thank the many supporters who have helped the football clubs investigation into illegal matchday entry to the stadium.


Although the investigations are continuing the club is overwhelmed by the number of supporters who have contacted the club to supply names and intelligence into the criminal methods of entry of a small percentage of its spectators. The club along with the relevant authorities will continue with its investigation and any spectators who are identified to be illegally entering the stadium or indeed profiteering from such activities will face a ban from Victoria Park for life.


Once again we cannot thank our loyal hardworking supporters enough for your true support and for coming together with the club to supply this vital information. Although we acknowledge this is a small minority as a percentage of our overall supporter base, the loss to the football club is very significant which only makes our jobs harder to consolidate in the football league and grow the football club on and off the pitch.  


Anyone who has information regarding those responsible for the organisation of illegal entry or those indeed illegally entering the stadium are encouraged to contact the football club via email under the subject heading Ticketing Abuse.
