‘All supporters are reminded ahead of the Boxing Day game against Portadown 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 ‘all ticket’ and a ‘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 if they don’t co-operate.  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.

 ‘Glenavon supporters should also note that on passing through the turnstiles and the main entrance they must retain their part of the ticket as access to the Geddis Stand and Crescent Stand will only be permitted on production of that ticket for the respective stand.

‘As this is a segregated game if you are recognised as a Glenavon supporter attempting to enter the away end or a Portadown supporter attempting to enter the home end you will not be allowed into the ground.’
