Blackpool (h): Information for fans


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

The Cherries return to Vitality Stadium on Saturday, and for those who haven't visited for a while, we've collected together some matchday information for fans.


There are no more tickets available for the game, with the match selling out for home fans after dropping to general sale last Sunday.

Arriving at Vitality Stadium

We would ask that supporters plan to arrive in plenty of time to enter the stadium, in particular if you are collecting tickets as you may need to show your order number for collection.

For a reminder of how to use our automated turnstiles, please click here. Please note, those situated in the Vitality South Stand should arrive early to avoid delays which may occur due to one turnstile being out of use.

Around the ground

Our club Superstore will be open on matchday for supporters keen to take a look at our brand new Umbro ranges including all three of our 2021/22 kits and training wear.

Please note, the club Superstore will be operating at a reduced capacity to improve your shopping experience. Alternatively, you can shop online ahead of time by clicking here.

The matchday programme will also be available to buy outside the stadium, with Gavin Kilkenny featuring on the front cover and taking part in an entertaining Q&A.

Cashless stadium

To assist with Covid-19 safety, the club has taken the decision to go cashless on our concourses. For more information, please click here.

Closure of Harewood Avenue

Please note, Harewood Avenue will be closed from Monday 26th July to Friday 27th August.

Supporters can view details of the suggested alternative route by clicking here.

Supporters should be aware that if you are parked at the stadium you can exit by turning left and via Gloucester Gate/Gloucester Road which will bring you to the A35 as an alternative route away from the ground.


Before starting your journey to Vitality Stadium, please check that you or anyone you are attending with are not displaying any symptoms of Covid-19.

If anyone is displaying symptoms, you should not attend the match and should follow government guidance on self-isolation which can be found here.

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 or have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Track & Trace, DO NOT attend the game.

Face coverings

On arrival at Vitality Stadium, the club strongly recommend that face coverings continue to be worn, especially in concourses/toilets and we ask that you continue to practice good hand hygiene protocols.

We would ask that you respect other supporters’ space especially when queueing as well as moving around and leaving the stadium. Sanitiser will be available prior to entry via the turnstiles and again on the concourses.
