Matchday Guide | Hartlepool United (H)

31 March 2024

Join us at the Crown Oil Arena on Easter Monday for the visit of Hartlepool United.

Kick-off in our Vanarama National League match is at 3pm.

Below is our Matchday Guide, providing all supporters – both home and away – with a comprehensive preview of everything to expect ahead of your visit.


Full admission details for the game, including prices, can be found HERE.

Bar coded entry continues to be in operation at the Crown Oil Arena, so tickets must be purchased before going to the turnstiles.

Buying online is the quickest and easiest way to purchase your match tickets and you can do so HERE. You can save your e-ticket directly to your phone to scan upon entry to the turnstiles.

As with our recent home games, all sales will be from the Ticket Office. This includes away fans. There will be no separate points of sale for individual stands. Furthermore, all ticket collections must be made from the Ticket Office. The Ticket Collection Cabin will be shut.

If it is your first time, or you are a returning supporter after a hiatus, check out our First Time Visitor guide. It is packed full of information for you to make the most of your day.

Turnstiles open at 2pm.

Supporters should be aware that we will only be selling Oldham Athletic away tickets up until midday in-person on Monday. They are still available to purchase online 24/7.
