Derby County are continuing to stage age concession checks in advance of entry into Pride Park Stadium for both home and away supporters at EVERY home game this season.
The club has been made aware of adults gaining entry into the stadium on matchdays by using junior or senior season/match tickets in the past.
As a result, club stewards are instructed to check season cards and match tickets at the turnstiles in both the home and visiting supporters’ areas of the ground at each fixture.
Any supporters found attempting to gain entry using a ticket category which is not for the correct individual will have their match ticket or season card confiscated, and they also run the risk of being prevented from obtaining entry to the stadium at future games.
Those with an age-related concession ticket must have suitable ID on them to prove their age, for example using a passport, birth certificate, driving license or other relevant documentation.
Should any supporters not have ID or if there is any doubt that they are not of the required age to use the ticket, then the ticket will be taken off them and they must purchase a new full priced ticket.
If supporters are in possession of an incorrect age related concession ticket, they must upgrade now from the Ticket Office at Pride Park Stadium or, if they are an away supporter, from their own Ticket Office if they have bought in advance.
It should be noted that it is a criminal offence to try and enter the stadium on a concession ticket when the supporter is not within the correct age bracket.
