Matchday Experience

15 April 2016

Improvments for Bradford game following SP meeting

Town’s new CEO Brian Caldwell attended a recent Supporter’s Parliament meeting to introduce himself to the supporters and get their thoughts.

A number of points were raised about the supporter’s matchday experience and Brian promised to take a look at these.  At the recent home game with Wigan Brian joined SP members Glyn Price and Chris Wynne to walk round the Greenhous Meadow ahead of the game and see at first hand the supporters concerns and suggestions.

Since then Brian has been looking through these points and the club has been hard at work behind the scenes to address a number of these.

At Saturday’s game with Bradford City supporters will be able to see some of these changes at first hand as the club look to improve the overall matchday experience.

Brian has been able to add vending machines to the concourses as well as address a number of the other issues.

“Following the recent Supporters Parliament meeting there were a number of points raised about the supporter’s matchday experience and certain issues were brought up”, said Brian.

“Ahead of the Wigan game I arranged a pre-match walk around the stadium with a couple of supporters Parliament members and during that I took notes on the points that were raised.

“It was very useful for me personally and following on from that we are starting to go through the list of items and see which we can address quickly.

“We have been working during the week to improve the shelving around the stadium and we have added and moved some of the shelves to hopefully address that.

“We have also installed three vending machines around the stadium in the Family Stand, South Stand and West Stand as this was another suggestion for us to try.

“These have initially been stocked with crisps, flapjacks and sweets for Saturday’s game with Bradford and hopefully this will help with the queues at the kiosks.

“We will review this over the next three home games in terms of the stock and use of the vending machines and revisit at the end of the season.

“We have addressed a number of the other issues which were raised so hopefully they should be sorted for tomorrow’s game and we will continue to work on items to improve match day for the supporters (including the music!).”
