There has been a change to the club’s smoking policy ahead of the 2016/17 season.
While the Gallagher Stadium has always been a non-smoking venue, a number of areas (Gates B & D and the Vice Presidents entrance) were made available to smokers before the game and at half-time.
These areas will now only be available up until 15 minutes before kick-off. After that time all the gates will be secured, including during half time, and there will be no readmission.
Club chief executive Bill Williams said: “We will continue to provide a smoking area in the run-up to kick off. Then, for a couple of hours, it will not be possible to smoke anywhere on the site until full time.
“I hope supporters will understand and respect this decision which has been made for operational reasons.”
Supporters are reminded that e-cigarettes are also not permitted anywhere inside the ground.
