Supporters Update: Fans set to return to Armadale Stadium

In just over a week, Armadale Stadium will finally reopen to the public for the first time since 2019. Find out all the details of what you can look forward to from May 21st!

On Friday 21st May, the easing of Scottish Government restrictions will allow a very limited crowd to attend the opening Monarchs fixture for 2021.

In a change to the original schedule, this opening fixture will now be a challenge match between Sam Masters' Monarchs and Richie Worrall's Devils - representative teams featuring the 2021 What The Fork Monarchs and Stellar Devils.

The originally scheduled match against Birmingham will be rescheduled for later in the season, with this newly scheduled fixture becoming a test event to trial covid-secure measures within the stadium.

Tickets for May 21st will initially go on sale exclusively to Gold Members on Friday 14th May at 9am until Monday 17th May at 1pm. Shortly afterwards, details will be published on how to book the remaining ticket allocation.

Gold Members will shortly be contacted by their preferred contact method with details on how to book. Any that don't receive a message by the end of today should check their spam email or get in touch with the Club.

Gold+ Members will be automatically allocated a ticket for 21st May, however the Club kindly asks any Gold+ Member that is not able to attend to get in touch with the Club to confirm this so as to allow this place to be put on general sale.

Admission Prices

The Club is pleased to confirm that standard matchday and pre-matchday admission prices will be held at current levels for the 2021 season.

Child 12 to 16 Years£6.00£8.50

Whilst crowd restrictions are in force for early fixtures, admission will be strictly by pre-booked tickets only. We will be unable to admit anybody who attends without a ticket.

Tickets to the first scheduled Monarchs Championship fixture against Redcar on May 28th will go on sale shortly after the opening fixture.

Spectator Code of Conduct

While booking tickets, supporters will be able to see the Club's Spectator Code of Conduct. The Club politely asks all attendees to familiarise themselves with this information. By booking a ticket you agree to abide by this guidance and adhere to all staff instructions.

Some aspects of attending will be slightly different to normal and the Club thanks all for their patience and support as everyone gets familiarised with the new procedures. These are in line with current Scottish Government guidance and are for the safety of all.

Supporters Bus

The Supporters Bus from Edinburgh to Armadale Stadium will operate in line with current Scottish Government guidance regarding public transport. This will include the mandatory wearing of face coverings while using the bus unless you are exempt.

The route, timings and cost will be unchanged from 2019. Full details will be confirmed in a separate news story here on the Official Website early next week.

Live Stream

EMTV:Live will continue to broadcast home fixtures online throughout the 2021 season. Whilst restrictions are in place on attendance, this will continue to be available without geographic restriction.
