99p to watch League One football - and stand with opposition fans

DONS fans who travel to Dagenham and Redbridge on January 22 are in for a rather unusual experience.

The east London club is holding its ‘Daggers against racism day’ when Dons come to town for their League One clash, and the game has also been dubbed as a ‘family fun day’ - with an interesting bonus for away fans.

There will be no segregation between home and away supporters at the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium - or Victoria Road in old money - and adult fans will only be charged 99p to stand and watch the game.

A terrace runs along the side of the pitch and behind one of the goals, and Dons fans will be free to roam amongst their home counterparts as they wish - allowed because both sets of supporters are deemed ‘low risk’ by police.

As well as adults getting to watch football for under a quid, concessions will only be charged 25p. However, if fans choose to sit rather than stand, they will be charged £4.99 and £9.99 respectively. All tickets will have to be purchased in advance.
