Welcome back to Rodney Parade!
It’s been over 18 months since we were last able to have our Dragons family in the stadium and you’ve really been missed.
Whilst COVID guidelines have eased, your health and safety is paramount to us and as always, we want you to have a great experience!
Whilst you’ve been away, we’ve needed to alter a few procedures here at our home, Rodney Parade.
For those of you that wish to read the current Welsh Government guidance and advice on Covid, please feel free to click on this link:
If that wasn’t enough for you, why not have a look at the Public Health Wales Covid advice too?
For most of us though, reading this brief document will be enough to have a good understanding of what we are trying to achieve.
Your safety is our main concern, we do want you to enjoy yourselves and have a great time, but we can’t take our eye of the ball when it comes to your safety.
With that in mind we have implemented a few measures which are all designed to minimise any kind of disruption to our collective, safe, match-day experience.
We all have differing views, fears and concerns about Covid-19, but here at Rodney Parade we are confident that the design of our ground and our safety protocols will be to everyone’s liking.
What do I need to do?
Before you travel to the stadium on Sunday, please check your general health and, if you have any symptoms of Covid-19, please stay at home and follow the government health advice.
Please ensure you have your e-ticket ready to hand. We would encourage supporters to print out tickets or save them to your device in advance.
Arriving at the stadium
Hospitality will open from 12pm on matchday, while all other entrances will open from 12:30pm There will be plenty of excitement in the air ahead of your long-awaited return, so we would encourage supporters to arrive early to ensure a timely entry into the stadium. We want to avoid queuing wherever possible!
Sanitation stations will be situated around the stadium, so please make use of them. It really does help to minimise the risk to everyone’s health.
Digital matchday programmes will be available online so make sure you keep an eye on our website and social media channels to get your pre-match reading.
Once through the turnstile
Please follow all signage within the stadium. Should you be unsure or need further assistance at any time our stewards will be more than happy to help or point you in the right direction!
Food and drinks will be available to purchase from the stadium concourse and the marquee, while Rodney’s bar is unfortunately closed for this game. Masks must be worn when queuing in the concourse area unless you are under the age of 12 or exempt. If our staff see someone without a mask, they’ll politely enquire why a mask isn’t being worn. Please don’t take offence, it’s for all of our safety.
Toilets will be available throughout the stadium and we kindly ask that masks being worn when accessing them.
The shop will be open and our new Dragons VX3 2021/22 kit will be on sale (It’s all great stuff), so feel free to buy with confidence. As like other indoor facilities on site you will be asked to wear face masks (unless exempt).
Thank you for your support over the past 18 months. We appreciate it has been a difficult time for everyone, but we want you to soak up this atmosphere, make plenty of noise and enjoy being #backonparade!
Enjoy the match and stay safe!
