All supporters are reminded ahead of the game against Portadown on Saturday the 20th February 2016 that alcohol, glass containers, glass bottles, fireworks and flares are prohibited from all public areas within Mourneview Park. Due to health and safety restrictions all tins and plastic bottles of drink (with tops attached) will also be banned from all the stands. In accordance with our Safety Certificate issued by Armagh Banbridge and Craigavon Council this game has been designated as a strictly ‘segregated game’. Trained search/security personnel are being drafted into the ground to assist Portadown and GFC stewards to search persons for any prohibited items. Any person detected trying to bring any such item into the ground or Stands will have it confiscated and be denied access to the ground. If the prohibited item constitutes a criminal offence then the person will be handed over to PSNI officers with a view to prosecution. In the safety interests of all persons attending the match anyone deemed drunk will not be permitted through the turnstiles. We ask for your co-operation with any directions given by the stewards in advance. The PSNI also wish it to be known that they will deploy in the ground with 4 uniformed ‘spotters’ who will be equipped with hand held video recorders for the purpose of gathering evidence against those engaging in criminality and/or anti-social behaviour.
Glenavon supporters should also note that as a result of disturbances on Boxing Day the Safety Certificate issued to Glenavon FC by Armagh Banbridge and Craigavon Council has been amended to reduce the capacity allowed in the Crescent Stand. Admittance to the Crescent Stand will therefore be by ticket only. Tickets will be on sale both before and after our forthcoming Danske Bank Premiership fixture with Glentoran on Monday 15th February from the club shop. Any remaining tickets can be obtained from the club office which is open from 9.30 to 12 noon daily. Those buying tickets will be asked to provide their name when doing so. Season ticket holders are reminded they must also obtain a ticket to gain admittance to the Crescent Stand. Tickets will not be on sale on the day of the game. Those supporters with tickets must retain their part of the ticket as access to the Crescent Stand, before or during the game, will only be permitted on production of that ticket.
