Desmond’s Den and the Carlsberg Lounge will be open before Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup Round One tie against Bolton Wanderers.
The bar/ Den, situated in the Smith Metals Family Stand, will be open from 6pm.
In case you missed our announcement last week, supporters should be aware that, in a change for the 2019/20 season, the Carlsberg Lounge will be accessible from Crown Oil Arena car park ONLY and not via the turnstiles. Please note that you WILL NOT be able to access Desmond’s Den/ Carlsberg Lounge from inside the Smith Metals Family Stand until 7.30pm.
At 7pm last orders will be called by the bar staff. This is to ensure everyone has left the Carlsberg Lounge by 7.30pm, allowing supporters to enter the ground via the turnstiles in plenty of time before kick-off.
The changes have been made for the 2019/20 campaign to make the Lounge/ the Den more accessible to everyone, including both home and away fans, and to negate the hassle of supporters in other stands collecting a token from the Ticket Office to gain entry.
Desmond’s Den is brand-new area where our junior supporters can hang out prior to kick-off and get involved in a range of activities. We have PlayStation 4s with the latest FIFA on them!
In addition, the Ratcliffe Bars, which is also accessible to both home and supporters, is open from 5pm.
