‘CHALLENGE 25’ IN EFFECT AT THE JOHN SMITH’S STADIUM
Supporters are reminded that we operate the Challenge 25 policy at the John Smith's Stadium for all supporters purchasing and drinking alcohol across both our Fan Zone and stadium concourses.
Should you be fortunate enough to look under 25, please do not be offended when asked and be prepared to show your photographic identification as proof of your date of birth.
Underage drinking, and supplying minors with alcohol, is a crime, and will not be tolerated at the John Smith's Stadium.
Challenge 25 is a retailing strategy that encourages anyone who is over 18 but looks under 25 to carry acceptable ID (a card bearing the PASS hologram, a photographic driving license or a passport) if they wish to buy alcohol.
CLICK HERE to find out more.
Located opposite the Legends Bar and Café, our Community Hub is home to table football, PlayStations, and colouring areas.
Open from 5.30pm, the Community Hub features a balloon modeller and face painter to make sure your Young Terrier stands out in the crowd and looks the part cheering on Town.
Available to under 18s only, children must be accompanied by an adult to gain entry.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Hub is an activity zone and not a retail space, so for all other retail items – clothing, replica shirts and training wear – please visit the HTAFC Shop situated next to the Ticket Office or the retail unit in the Fan Zone.
