Cash turnstiles (30-32, 35-36 and 47-50) will be in operation for Saturday’s game against Oxford and the Stadium of Light ticket office will be open from 9am.
There will be no concession tickets available via the turnstiles, and they must be purchased via the ticket office.
Tickets are priced from £22 for adults, £17 for over-65s, £12 for under-22s and £7 for under-16s, and tickets will be available from the ticket office from 9am until kick-off.
Fans should allow extra time when purchasing tickets on matchday, as both the turnstiles and ticket office are expected to be exceptionally busy.
Fans are reminded that new season cards have been issued to all supporters, and old season cards will not allow access to the stadium.
Please ensure you have the correct season card with you when travelling to the game, and if you have not received your new season card, please contact the ticket office immediately on 0371 911 9173 or by emailing email@example.com.
Please allow extra time for entry whilst people familiarise with the new turnstile system.

Important Travel Information
Due to the completion of the North Bridge Street Road improvements, supporters should no longer exit the Sheepfolds via Easington Street onto North Street by car, as this is now a ‘no entry’ point for vehicles.
This weekend, there will also be a northbound closure between the A1231 Hylton and Testo’s roundabout from 8pm on Friday 2 to 6am on Monday 5 August.
