IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PLAYERS, MANAGERS AND SPECTATORS
We have VERY strict rules regarding permitted footwear when anyone enters the pitch enclosure. Rules that apply to players, those in the dugouts and supporters who, for example, want to take photos. Please read – Permitted Footwear at The 1878 Stadium, Burnham Football Club
A downloadable version of the Permitted Footwear / Forbidden Footwear guidance from the FA is also available to download here.
For the benefit of the players
We want people to enjoy their time at The 1878 Stadium. If for any reason you forget to bring your boots or Astros, there is a selection of boots in various sizes you can borrow while you are here. Just ask a staff member at pitch side hatch for help.
Sitting or laying on the pitch (unless genuinely injured), wearing flat shoes, trainers, sliders, socks or bear feet has the effect of ironing the grass fibres. Flattening the surface damages the complex water drainage system, causing waterlogging and dramatically reduce the life expectancy of the artificial pitch. Socks only, bear feet, shoes, trainers or sliders with flat soles are NOT permitted – No Excuses! Abusive behaviour towards staff will not be tolerated. If you want to know more, click here
Leaving the 1878 Stadium
Supporters should leave the stands via the main blue gate next to the tunrnstiles. On occasion, players and team management may be asked to leave the stadium via the players tunnel, passed the Blues Bar and back into the main car park.
Please respect our neighbours and any keep noise and all disruption to a minimum at all times – thank you.
