On Saturday we welcome Hemel Hempstead Town to Arbour Park in National League South - and we have pulled together some useful information for supporters in advance.
Live Premier League football
We will be screening the North London Derby between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in the West Stand bar area before our match gets underway. This game kicks off at 12:30 and we will be opening the bar and kitchen earlier than usual, at around 12:15.
The turnstiles will not be open at this time, so supporters will need to enter Arbour Park via the main entrance in the West Stand, and either show their season ticket or pay the admission charge in return for a printed ticket. There will be no access to the rest of the ground until the turnstiles open.
