Supporters attending Preston’s football match against Blackpool on Tuesday (5 April) are asked to be aware of the significant policing operation which will be in place.


The two sides will meet for the first time since August 2013 and to keep all members of the public safe, there will be a series of cordons around the away turnstiles at the stadium in Deepdale.

The cordons will be in place from 5.30pm on matchday and will remain in place until after the away supporters’ coaches have departed. Any residents in the local area who are affected by these arrangements have been informed via letter.

Cordons for Preston vs Blackpool

Away supporters will only be able to access the away turnstiles via the Blackpool Road junction with Lowthorpe Road, where ticket checks will be undertaken by staff; supporters without tickets will not be able to access this area before, during or after the match.

Blackpool supporters travelling by coach will be met at a pre-arranged location and escorted into the cordoned area with the coaches remaining there for the duration of the operation.

PNE fans are asked to use alternative routes to and from the stadium and turnstiles on the night and we apologise for any inconvenience caused, but the aim of the operation is to ensure the safety of all those attending the match.

Supporters who require access to the Invincibles car park will still be able to access this, however, this will need to be accessed via St Gregory’s Road.
