NEWS | Match guide: Hunslet
We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Keepmoat Stadium for our first league game without restrictions since March 2020.
Since it was confirmed that we could progress to this stage following the easing of restrictions, we have been working hard to create a fun and safe environment for you to enjoy.
Here is what you can expect on matchday:
Although facemasks will not be mandatory within the stadium, the club supports any individuals wishing to wear them. You may also see some of our staff around the ground wearing face coverings please don’t be offended by an individual's choice on this matter.
While social distancing measures have been removed by the Government, we understand that some of our supporters may feel apprehensive being at a sporting event with so many people in attendance. Please be courteous and respectful in trying where possible to maintain a safe distance when queuing. NHS track and trace will also be available inside the stadium and we encourage supporters to use it as they enter the ground.
Socially distanced seating
The club are keen to ensure everyone feels comfortable and have allocated parts of the ground which provide a socially distanced seating experience. If when you arrive you wish to take this option up, please let the nearest steward know.
If there is a point during the game when you start to feel uncomfortable due to the proximity of others, or people around you not wearing facemasks, please speak to a steward and we will aim to find alternative seating for you to ensure you can continue to enjoy your experience.
