Blackpool Match Information

Pre match information to help you on matchday

31 January 2020

Oxford United welcome Blackpool to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday. Below is some information that will help you get the most from your day.

TICKETS
It's another big game for the U's. Tickets are available from oufctickets.co.uk or by calling 01865 337533 and can be purchased from the Ticket Office on the day.

Season Ticket holders have the chance to bring a friend to that game for just £5 but are reminded that this offer is not available on matchday
 
The aim is to give fans who haven’t been this season, or maybe even for a little longer than that, a chance to come along at a hugely reduced price and get back in to the habit of watching the U’s. Do you know someone who fits that category? Then give them a call and get them along as part of the Yellow Army.
 
The offer is open to all Season Ticket Holders and it’s easy: just log on to oufctickets.co.uk or call 01865 337533. Season Ticket seat exchanges are limited to your usual stand and are available on a first come first serve basis.

The match programme is available around the ground for £3 and there are two versions available: one for home fans and one for away.
