Guide For Away Fans

If you’re planning a trip to Victoria Park as an away fan to support your team then here is some information that may be of use to you.

The Simpson Millar Stand
Away supporters are situated in the Simpson Millar Stand (also known as the Rink End). This is an all-seated stand that has a maximum capacity of 1,035. There is no terraced area available for away supporters. There is space for 14 wheelchair users within the stand.

Away tickets are priced at £20 for adults and £14 for concessions (Over 60s, Under 19s, Students, Armed Forces – all with valid ID). Under 16s are just £5. Under 5’s are free.

Away tickets may be sold by the visiting club.

Ambulant /wheelchair disabled fans pay their relevant age category and are entitled to a free carer if in receipt of enhanced rate PIP/high rate DLA.

The Club Ticket Office is open from 10am to kick-off on a matchday.

You can contact the Ticket Office on 01429 272584 (option 2) or email

Food & Drink
We have a catering outlet inside the away end at Victoria Park that serves a selection of hot and cold snacks – including our famous foot-long hotdogs.

We also have a bar facility in the away stand. Please note, this will not be open when the expected away following is less than 150. However, there will then be alcohol on sale from the catering outlet in the away stand.

Also, away fans are welcome to enjoy a pre-match drink in our Centenary Bar, which is situated on Clarence Road. The Centenary Bar provides a friendly atmosphere for home and away supporters, where you can enjoy a pre-match pint while watching live football on TV (subject to availability).

Match Programmes
The Pools Programme is our popular Matchday Programme and it is available for sale on the day of a game priced at £3.

You can get your copy from one of our Programme Sellers who will be situated at the four corners of the ground prior to kick off and then inside of the ground from kick off.

They are also on sale in the Club Ticket Office, Retail Store and Main Reception.

If you don’t pick a copy up on a matchday, we sell back copies in Pools Retail Store (subject to availability).
