The away stand at the JobServe Community stadium is situated behind the goal at the northern end of the stadium. Fans can choose which away section they wish to sit in, but the online system will allocate them a specific seat.

To allow groups of fans to sit together while operating social distancing, (when appropriate) fans can create their own groups (bubbles). This will allocate tickets together with anyone else that has purchased tickets in the same section and using the same group name.

A confirmation email will then be sent, which will include information on what happens next. Information regarding your ticket will also be available via a dashboard, which will be available when you log in to the colutickets.com account used to purchase your ticket.
