AFC Bournemouth welcome Liverpool U23s to Vitality Stadium for our game on Sunday afternoon.
The game kicks off at 1pm and you are strongly advised to arrive early to avoid any potential queues as all supporters will be searched prior to entering the ground and bags will be searched/tagged. Please do not bring a bag if you do not absolutely need one.
You may not have used our automated turnstiles before and if so we recommend you view this video to familiarise yourself and so not cause a delay in others entering the ground.
Here’s a list of what is open at the stadium ahead of kick-off.
9am TICKET OFFICE OPEN
Supporters can collect their tickets for the game from 9am at one of the collection windows.
You can also purchase tickets for our FA Youth Cup quarter final taking place at Vitality Stadium on Tuesday evening against Manchester City with kick-off 7pm.
The ticket office will close at 3pm.
10am SUPERSTORE OPEN
You can now get your hands on our replica kit and training wear for 50% off!
The superstore will remain open throughout the match and will close at 3pm.
While there is free parking adjacent to the ground this will fill very quickly and supporters are advised that it can take up to 45 minutes to clear the car park. Please be aware that you can exit the south car park via Gloucester Road which may help avoid some delay.
