AWAY DAY GUIDE | Grimsby Town

Everything you need to know ahead of tomorrow’s match

22 March 2024

The Red Dragons are back on the road this weekend, as Phil Parkinson’s side travel to Blundell Park tomorrow to take on the Mariners in Sky Bet League Two action.

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 Saturday, as the fixture falls inside the Article 48 window, UK supporters can only access live commentary for the match.

However, for our overseas fans, there are both live video and audio streaming options available.

Supporters should check their travel routes before heading to Blundell Park, due to road closures on the M62.

Flags and Banners

Flags are permitted into Blundell Park on matchdays, but any banner or flag larger than 160cm x 80cm must have a valid fire certificate supplied with it at the time of bringing it into the stadium. 

Any supporter planning on bringing in a flag/banner that requires a fire certificate must inform the club’s Health and Safety Officer prior to the match-day, including a photograph of the flag/banner via an email to

Messages and images on any flag or banner must be supportive of their team and not contain any texts or images of a defamatory, racial, abusive, homophobic, religious hatred or any other text that could be perceived as inciting tension by the club’s duty managers on a match-day. 

Grimsby reserves the right to refuse any flag/banner that does not endorse supporting the game entry into the stadium. 

Flags must not be displayed in an area where the enjoyment of the match for other supporters would be disrupted or obscured by the presence of the flag/banner. 

The match-day stewards reserve the right to ask supporters to remove their flag/banner if it is causing disruption or upset to fellow or rival supporters. In addition, flags must not cover any advertising.

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.
