There’s plenty going on at Pride Park Stadium before kick-off on a matchday to keep everyone entertained!


The DCFCMegastore, which is the hub of Derby County’s retail operations, is located at the North East corner of the stadium and remains open right up until kick-off.

This stocks a wide range of Derby County items ranging from replica kits to accessories and gift items.

You can also check out the DCFC Ministore located on the Toyota West Stand side of Pride Park Stadium near the statue of legendary duo Brian Clough & Peter Taylor.


Food and drink is also available from the in-stadium concourses from when the turnstiles open for supporters to enjoy ahead of kick-off and at half-time.


The turnstiles to enter the stadium open an hour and a half before kick-off. Derby County operates a scanning system to allow access to the stadium where the barcode of the ticket is scanned to gain entry.

It's easy to use, demonstrated in the three-step guide below...

Once inside the stadium there are plenty of activities, matchday competitions and entertainment on the pitch, but please note this is entirely dependent on any restrictions that may impact on our ability to host such activities.


The main event is the big game, but the club strives to produce an enjoyable experience to all supporters right the way through the day.
