At The Game - What's Happening?
We have a packed schedule of activities on offer for supporters of all ages at our match day.
Throughout the season there’ll be different off-field activities. Our mascot Candy has a selfie station and she’d like to invite groups of all ages for a pre-match selfie - the best ones might even get featured in the next game’s programme!
Near to the turnstiles we have the Durham WFC Fan Zone, an area of the ground dedicated to our fans!. Candy will be stationed there with plenty of opportunities for selfies and autographs! There will also be a number of other activities available for children to take part in.
A number of other activities are also taking place. Whether it be bubble football (a massive hit with our fans last year!), crossbar challenge or face painting, we always aim to keep the younger ones engaged. Stay tuned to our Twitter account (@DurhamWFC) in the days before a game to see what’s coming up.
A DJ/Compere will also be present at every game.
Match Day Timetable
Below is a rough estimate of our timings on a home match day:
1 hour before kick-off - The turnstiles open and fans can enter the ground. Candy's Corner is open and children can begin to enjoy the activities on offer. Merchandise, refreshments and programmes will also be on sale, while team news will be released on our social media channels.
45 minutes before kick-off - The teams will begin their warm-ups.
30 minutes before kick-off - Team news will be revealed via the PA, while the atmosphere will be beginning to build.
10 minutes before kick-off - The teams will head back into the dressing room. Perfect opportunity for you to pick your seat or spot to watch the game from!
Half-Time - Refreshments will be on sale while some activities in Candy's Corner will still be ongoing. There may also be some activities taking place on the pitch!
Full-Time - After their post-match team talk, the players will be happy to sign autographs and pose for photographs at the front of the Main Stand.
