Maidstone United’s first game in the Vanarama National League will be all-ticket.
The Stones welcome York City to the Gallagher Stadium on Saturday 6 August for the curtain raiser to the 2016/17 season, which is also being shown live on BT Sport.
On the advice of the safety authorities, tickets will be sold in advance by both clubs and there will be separate home and away sections.
York City have been allocated 465 tickets for the game, with the rest of the 2,947 capacity for home supporters.
Home section tickets will go on sale next week – dates and times to be advised.
Season ticket holders do not have to do anything as their card guarantees admission for all 23 league games at the Gallagher. Anyone who has signed up for the Maidstone United Fan Club will get priority to buy a ticket ahead of a general sale.
Club chief executive Bill Williams said: “Our first game in the top tier of non-league football is against a former Football League club – so it came as no surprise to me that it would be ticketed.
“This will be the case for several games this season, especially when the capacity is further reduced during the north stand construction.
“It’s times like these when season tickets really come into their own – our 1,100 holders can just turn up on the day with their card. At the very least, I’d recommend a fan club membership to get that priority timeslot to buy.”
