We have now had conformation that we are able to collect flags and banners from supporters and place them around the stadium in time for the second leg of the play offs.
If you have a flag or banner you would like to display at the Portsmouth home match, please note the following info.
Oxford United fans are being invited to drop off their flags at the Kassam Stadium to further show their support for the squad at our home playoff game against Portsmouth!
We are delighted to see so many of The Yellow Army have already backed the club in renewing their season tickets and supporting the “Fans in the crowd” initiative.
Bring your flags to the Kassam, to be put on display in the East and North Stands.
HOW: If you wish to see your flag displayed at next Monday’s Play Off second leg, volunteers from OxVox and The Yellow Army will be at the main reception of the Kassam Stadium from 10-2 on Saturday 4th July to accept delivery of your flag.
Flags and banners must be delivered in sealable bags which also include your name and contact details to ensure flags can be identified when returned. Each flag owner will also receive a numbered ticket which will need to be presented back to volunteers to secure the return of your flag.
Those same volunteers will be at The Kassam Stadium on Tuesday 7th July from 11am-2pm to return flags to visitors. Any flags not collected at this time will be securely locked in the stadium until the next game we are able to attend.
All flags must still meet the club’s ground regulations, this means that any flags/banners measuring more than 250cm at their longest point should be made from fire-retardant material and a fire certificate must be produced. Proof of certification may be required.
Please note that flags must not contain any derogatory, defamatory or discriminatory wording or anything that we may feel is controversial or derogatory towards either our team or the opposition. Flags will be displayed at the club’s discretion.
Please also ensure that where possible, flags or banners are prepared with proper eyelets/strings, to allow them to be securely fastened in the stands.
