AWAY DAY GUIDE | Sutton United

All the information you’ll need if you’re headed to south London this evening

13 February 2024

The Red Dragons are back on the road this evening, as they face Sutton United in Sky Bet League Two action.

Phil Parkinson’s side fell to another defeat at the weekend against Bradford City following a last-minute winner from Andy Cook, despite a much-improved performance at the STōK Cae Ras

Sutton are yet to win a match in 2024, so tonight provides an excellent opportunity for the Red Dragons to get back on track and look towards getting back in the promotion places.

Ahead of the match, we look at all the information you’ll need if you’re set to attend the fixture.

If you can't make it tonight, as the fixture falls outside the Article 48 window, the game can be watched live both in the UK and internationally on iFollow Wrexham, for this match.

Supporter Conduct 

Wrexham AFC wishes to remind supporters of the potential safety implications and consequences that may occur as a result of pitch incursions and other illegal and unacceptable behaviour.

As previously communicated, supporters who encroach on the pitch risk facing a Football Banning Order as well as a criminal conviction, while the Club itself could also face a fine for these actions.

There may also be other implications for the Club, including restrictions on future away ticket allocations. This is due to potential safety measures the home Club are required to put in place which impacts on the availability of seating.

The Club understands the emotion and passion that comes with attending the match as a fan but must reiterate that the safety of players, managers and supporters on both sides remains our priority.

The vast majority of fans have – and continue to – support the Club in an appropriate manner and are a credit to Wrexham AFC, but we will seek the strongest possible punishment for those who enter the field of play or engage in any other unacceptable behaviour.

As in line with the FA initiative, Wrexham AFC fully support the ‘Love Football Protect the Game’ program.

Wrexham AFC support the new measures that have been implemented to both improve participant and fan behaviour across the board.

Wrexham AFC operates a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind, and supporters are encouraged to come forward and report any incidents it to the nearest steward, the Club, or Kick it Out.
