Bishop Auckland have released ticket information ahead of our pre-season friendly match on Wednesday 14 July (7pm).

The match will be strictly all ticket with a capacity of 975.

Tickets will be priced at £12 adults/concessions and £8 for Under-16s.

50% of the net gate receipts from the match will be donated to Neil Warnock’s chosen charity: ‘The James Cook Children’s A & E Appeal’.

Middlesbrough will receive an allocation of 450 tickets. Details of how Boro fans can buy will be available later this week. 

There will be socially distanced seating available in the (covered) main stand as well as the two seating areas at the petrol station end. Seating is strictly limited.

There will be no reserved seating in any of the stands but BAFC will endeavour to give priority to disabled and infirm/elderly fans. There are four specific disabled seating areas in the main stand.

A very small number of car park spaces will be available but we do recommend that wherever possible you utilise public transport.
