All you need to know for attending Saturday's game


Matchday information: Altrincham v Dover Athletic 

Our opening home game in this season's Vanarama National League takes place on Saturday 4th September at The J. Davidson Stadium, with a 3pm kick-off. 

The capacity limitations in place last season have been lifted and so, therefore, we look forward to welcoming you back without restrictions.  The snack bars, Community Sports Hall, Manchester Glass Sponsors' Lounge and Fan Zone will all be open for business, and we look forward to enhancing your matchday experience with these facilities.

We are encouraging everyone to buy tickets in advance, and these can be purchased at: 


Prices are: 

Adults £17 

Concessions (over 65s, Students, NHS workers) £14 

Juniors (aged 12-18) £6 

Children (under 12) £2 

Buying a ticket in advance will accelerate access to the ground and give us a better idea of crowd numbers, allowing for better planning.  Tickets will be available on the day, in cash, on the turnstiles, but we would greatly appreciate your purchasing an e-ticket through the link above. 

Please do not attend the game if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 and please make yourself familiar with our Code of Conduct: https://www.altrinchamfc.com/club/code-of-conduct 

The game will be segregated, with Dover Athletic occupying the Chequers End and accessing the ground through the turnstiles at that end of the ground. 

Home fans, whether with e-tickets or paying cash, can access the ground through any other open turnstile, on the Golf Road or to the right of the Main Stand.

If you want to be seated in either the Main Stand or the Family Stand, please enter the ground through the turnstiles to the right of the Main Stand.  If you wish to stand in any part of the ground, please enter through the Golf Road turnstiles.

To reiterate, all open turnstiles will accept cash, e-tickets and season tickets.  If you only have a card, you have two alternatives – buy an e-ticket on your phone and gain admission that way or visit the new ATM cash machine situated across the road from the ground, outside Premier Stores Hale Convenience Store. 

Turnstiles 5 and 6 by the main stand will be open from 1.30pm, and all turnstiles will be in operation by 2pm. Please get to the ground as early as possible to avoid congestion on entry. 

The only remaining COVID-related restrictions are that the Directors' Box, the main tunnel and the Boardroom are strictly off-limits to all except the playing staff and officials and is still designated as the Red Zone, as is the field of play, and no spectators are allowed to access any of these areas under any circumstances. 

The snack bars will be serving a full range of food, snacks and drinks and will, for this game, be cash only.  The menu is here https://www.altrinchamfc.com/club/menu-at-the-j-davidson-stadium 

Alcohol will be on sale in the Community Sports Hall and the Libero Bar in the Fan Zone, but, as has been the case since our promotion back to the top flight of the Vanarama National League, this cannot be consumed on the terraces or in sight of the pitch. 

Season Ticket Holders 

Your season tickets were posted out to you on Tuesday, but if you have not received them by Friday please contact us at [email protected] and we will send you an e-ticket by email.  Those of you who have only purchased your e-tickets in the last few days will be receiving an email ticket which will allow you to access the ground on Saturday. 

Business Club Members 

The club will be contacting you in the coming days with details on how to attend Saturday’s game and where to enter the ground. 

Vice Presidents 

Please go to the red door in the corner of the ground at the Moss Lane/Golf Road junction.  You can access the game there.


If you are dining in the Sponsors' Lounge, please make your way to Gate 4, between the Main Stand and the Family Stand, and you can gain access to the ground there.
