As a Club we wish to provide as free and safe environment as possible.

To that end we are retaining our safety processes, but they are now advisory, not mandatory.



We will be operating 2 turnstiles at our main Turnstile block next to the club shop.

Turnstile 1 will operate on a card only basis.  Turnstile 2 will operate on a cash only basis.

Both turnstiles have suggested Social Distance markings on the floor outside them.

Junior Academy Parents, you will need to be with the Junior Academy Member at time of entering.

Weston-super-Mare AFC Season Ticket Holders

Your entrance using your Season Ticket Card will be via the players and officials’ entrance.

Please note for “All Pay Fixtures” you will be required to pay full price.


Car Park

Our Supporters Car Park charges £2.00 to park on a match day. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept card payment for this. So please ensure you have £2.00 available to pay on arrival.

For Season Ticket holders, early arrival is recommended, your car park will still be for your exclusive use, when full you will be given free parking in the Supporters Car Park, where possible, instead.


Facilities within Ground

Please note our Sportsman bar will close 90 minutes prior to kick-off, at which time the turnstiles will be open and access can be made into the ground.  Our Somerset Suite Bar, Kitchen and inside ground Joe’s Bar will all be open.

Card payment can be made at all three locations.

All three areas do have ground markings detailing the social distancing suggestions. At busy times, such as half time we will be placing Stewards in these locations to remind supporters [of the suggested social distancing.]


Club Shop

The Club Shop within The Optima Stadium will be open for all Weston-super-Mare AFC First team games.


Player Tunnel Gates

We may close these, for the players entry to the pitch and return from the pitch during their pre-match warm-up, there may be a slightly longer period before the game where these will have to remain closed.

We do apologise in advance for this. The Stewards will open them as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.


Match Footballs

We do ask that supporters try not to throw balls back on to the pitch.

A Steward or Ball Person will instead make their way to your location, gather the football, and return to the Home Dugout so that it can be cleaned before going back on to the pitch.

When balls leave the pitch in this manner the Home Dugout will be throwing another ball on to the pitch for the continuation of the game.


Track & Trace

Before entering The Optima Stadium, we ask you to complete a Track & Trace system.

There are signs before entering the turnstiles and one in the turnstile. There is the recognised NHS App version system.

Additionally, for those unable to use the NHS App there is a simple QR scan code that you scan using your mobile telephone, click on the link it gives you and then complete your details.

This is recommended for every visit you make to The Optima Stadium.


Social Distancing

We do remind all supporters it is your responsibility to maintain [current UK Government] Social Distancing guidelines while you visit The Optima Stadium.

This includes all areas of the ground, inside and out, along with the seated areas.
