Availability for this match is limited and tickets are now only available in the Bycars Stand. Tickets are available to Port Vale supporters with a previous booking history for Port Vale fixtures in the past two years. Supporters who attempt to enter the stadium with incorrect tickets will be refused entry.

Away supporters are situated in the Hamil Road Stand. Supporters of Plymouth Argyle should note that the kiosks in the away end are card only. 

We politely request supporters arrive at Vale Park in good time to avoid entry queues. Turnstiles will open from 10:30am.

Please have your ticket ready to be scanned on approach to the Stadium for an efficient entry process. If you’re accessing the stadium with an e-ticket, please ensure the device is not in dark mode and the brightness is turned up to maximum.

Port Vale supporters can also purchase tickets in person from the Port Vale Ticket Office, which is open from 9am on Sunday. 

Away Ticket Collection

Away ticket collection is situated on Car Park C next to the away turnstiles.

Away tickets cannot be collected from the main club ticket office.

Love Football, Protect The Game. 

As we reach this final stage of the season we must remind you in the interests of safety for everyone inside our stadium, that the pitch is for managers, players and match officials, while the stands are there for you to support the team.

Pitch incursions are dangerous and anyone who does encroach onto the playing surface will face strong sanctions that could include a ban from attending matches here at Vale Park and across the country, and police action.

It is a criminal offence to enter the pitch and the real-life consequences for these actions have been felt by many with some fans receiving criminal records which can impact employment, education prospects and international travel.

Season Ticket Early Bird Deadline

Supporters who wish to take advantage of our Early Bird Season Ticket pricing will be able to purchase their season tickets from our ticket office before and after the match, with the Ticket Office open from 9am and then for 60 minutes following the full-time whistle.

Those who wish to purchase online have until 23:59 on 7/5/23 to secure tickets at the Early Bird Price.

Tommy Cheadle's

For this match, Tommy Cheadle's will be open to away supporters only. 

Card and Contactless Payments 

Please note that kiosks in the Lorne Street stand and all hospitality areas will be accepting card and contactless payments only.

We will also be offering a Click & Collect service in the Lorne Street through FoodHub.

Staff from FoodHub and Port Vale will be on hand to assist supporters with using the Click & Collect service for the first time!

Allocated Seating

Please ensure you sit in the seat that is allocated to you - this information is printed on your ticket and in your order confirmation if you purchase online.

Potential Road Closures

For safety reasons, there may be a road closure on Hamil Road preventing vehicular movement until Hamil Road is clear of pedestrian footfall.

The closure points will be Hamil Road junction with Jenkins Street and Lorne Street, creating a sterile area for egressing pedestrians.

The planned timings would be from the final whistle (or earlier) until the highway is clear of pedestrians. The closure could be in position prior to the final whistle as a precautionary measure, depending on score and high volumes of early leavers, it is anticipated that the closure could be in place for 30 - 45 minutes.
