Tickets for away supporters do not seem to be available to online purchasers. The Jimmy Sirrel Stand does not appear on the drop down menu.
Does anyone know if it is 'pay at the turnstile' or do you have to purchase from the ticket office?

I will try and sort this and a couple of other issues on Monday morning after reception is open.
Until then I'm sorry I'm no help.

We did hooters before the fa cup game a couple of years back,had a nice meal and a couple of beers still have the photo we had taken with some of the girls did not find it seedy at all so I think you are giving out the wrong impression if I was going Saturday I would have no problem going there again.

Seedy maybe the wrong word, glad you enjoyed it. Not my sort of thing. Each to their own of course, enjoy if you end up going again :)

Seek and ye will find.

To answer my own query - 'hidden' away on the website.

An additional ticket booth is available for away supporters to obtain tickets on matchday. This booth is located to the rear of the Jimmy Sirrel Stand with only cash payments available. Away supporters will also be able to collect any pre-paid tickets from this booth.

Matchday ticket booths will open two hours before kick-off.


There will likely be a bumper crowd for this game.

He said: “I’m really excited to experience my first Community Day at Meadow Lane, with our primary objective being to get as many people inside the ground as possible to create a carnival atmosphere.

“We’ve reduced our ticket prices to £10 for all adults, while under 18s’ tickets are £5, under 12s’ are £1 and under sevens go free.

“With no Championship or Premier League football on that day, it would be brilliant to see fans of all the East Midlands teams come together to support us, with Forest fans in particular having a great opportunity to track the progress of Jorge Grant and Ryan Yates.

“Everyone is welcome!”

Just tried to buy tickets for the Jimmy Sirrell stand (for away fans) from the link on our main News page but it still doesn't show this stand in the drop down menu - only the 3 stands for home fans !!

OTC or anyone else - can we buy in advance online or have we got to buy for cash (??!!!) on the day ?

Thanks !

Unfortunately I've been unable to get through to office today.
However the FGR website have added the following:
https://www.forestgreenroversfc.com/new ... tts-county
I tried Notts County link supplied and got message 'Page not found' !!!
What I think half the problem is, as previously mentioned, tickets for this this game have already been reduced to £10 and an early bird purchase won't be any cheaper. And with Notts County's large stadium and FGR's comparative small away support, I am positive that there will be plenty of room for all of us to pay on day.

Email reply from Tim Bradd at Notts County ticket office. No tickets available on-line ............. only by phone or on the day.

Yes FGR specifically stated they did not want any tickets to sell in advance to their supporters. They asked if anyone wanting to buy in advance can do so from us which is not an issue. I let them know we could do online by putting a block on and I can send them details. However I didn’t hear anything back on this so I am guessing they have just used our site as a link. We wouldn’t normally sell away tickets this way as opposition normally request an allocation to sell to their own support. I did give FGR our direct ticket number for supporters to call and we have had a couple this morning. I would suggest that you advise any of your supporters wishing to buy in advance call 0115 9557210 during office hours and we can look after them that way. The other option is to pay cash at the away ticket booth on the day, same prices apply as advanced sales on this occasion.

Just received this good/bad news from club:
"We have a full coach for tomorrow, but unfortunately, not enough fans on the reserve list to warrant a 2nd coach."

Fantastic to have a full coach but I feel for those left behind who wanted to travel.

On the coach are a number of Ambassadors and their guardians. Could I ask them to sit in the three sets of seats behind the table and the three on LH aisle directly adjacent. Thanks.

I booked the train from Cheltenham to Nottingham (direct service) a few weeks ago @ £9.95 each way. Only 10 minutes easy walk to Meadow Lane at the other end. Doubtless prices have increased since then but a good option to the supporters coach & easier than driving/parking. About 2 hours station to station.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
