All fans attending the game should note that Walton Street remains closed at its junction with Longden Street and this should be factored into your journey time to the stadium. The Walton Street car park remains open and is accessible from Spring Bank West but, with a sell-out crowd due, please allow extra time for your journey to the stadium with traffic congestion likely in the local area.
The main action gets underway at 5.30pm as the Tigers take on Frank Lampard’s side but there is also plenty to look forward to ahead of kick-off, with all sorts going on in and around the ground.
Here’s what we’ve got lined up:
9am – Tiger Leisure Opens
Pop in to our KCOM Stadium store to pick up any Hull City merchandise ahead of the game or to take advantage of our free shirt printing offer – giving you the chance to personalise ay home, away, third or goalkeeper shirt purchased on the day. Full details are available here.
10am – Ticket Zone Opens
The Ticket Zone, located in the East Stand, will be open for any general ticket enquiries. However, with the tie being a complete sell-out, please note there will be no tickets available to purchase on the day of the game.
3pm – The Dugout Bar Opens
Exclusively available to our Members, The Dugout Bar opens its doors at 3pm. Just show your Membership Card at the door to gain entry.
Alternatively, take a stroll around to the West Stand to see the new public art installation created by local artist Andy Pea, pupils from Thoresby Primary School and featuring contributions from fans, players and staff if you haven’t seen it yet.
3.30pm – Turnstiles & Pitchside Bar Open
Head into the stadium where you’ll find our concourse outlets open to serve hot and cold food and drink.

The Pitchside Bar – located on the outside of the North Stand – will also open its doors at this time.
3.30pm – Concourse Entertainment
We’ve got plenty happening on the concourses ahead of kick-off with face painters, balloon artists and freestyle footballers all roaming around the West, South and East Stands, along with the outer bowl of the stadium.
And make sure you head to the Family South Stand concourse for extra entertainment and activities. We’ll have Foot Snooker and Table Football on offer in the South West, and you’ll be able to put your FIFA 20 skills to the test courtesy of GAME Hull, who will be set-up on the South East concourse. We’ll also have another Table Football on offer to supporters in the Upper West.
4pm – Bucket Collection To Support Mose Masoe
There will be bucket collections to support Hull Kingston Rovers player Mose Masoe, after the 30-year-old Samoan suffered a serious spinal injury during his side’s pre-season friendly at Wakefield earlier this month. Please dig deep and donate whatever you can afford in order to help support Mose and his family in the journey they face together. The whole city stands with you, Mose!
4.10pm – Hull City Sesh
Once described as like a cross between The Beautiful South and The Smiths, Sandra’s Wedding – a four piece band from Goole made up of singer/songwriter Joe Hodgson, guitarist Jonny Hughes, bass player Tom Hill and Luke Harrison on drums – will take to the Hull City Sesh stage on the East Stand concourse to play a live set.

Enjoy the day/evening!
