Milton Keynes Dons have asked us to make travelling supporters aware of the following information ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League 2 fixture at Stadium:MK.
Search is a condition of entry to Stadium:MK. Search is only with the spectator's consent, but declining or refusing to be searched will mean entry is not permitted to the ground.
Pyrotechnic and drugs detection dogs will be deployed at Stadium:MK for the game This is, in part, due to smoke devices being set off at fixtures between the two clubs at Stadium:MK before. Discovery of pyrotechnics or drugs possession will result in admission being refused, the involvement of the police and potential arrest. Both MK Dons and Northampton Town are signed up to the Chairmans’ Charter EFL campaign. Any supporter responsible for the use or involvement with pyrotechnics may face a three year club ban as well as a possible Police ban for a minimum of three years.
Searches on entry to Stadium MK will take place regardless of arrival time at the stadium. Entrance gates will open at 1.45pm, so please arrive in plenty of time to allow for the search process. Late arrival may mean a delayed entrance into the stadium, as the search process will still be undertaken.
