“It will motivate the away team supporters to flock to our Arena in numbers to watch their favourite teams live in action. We believe this move will create a great atmosphere in the stadium and I am quite sure the fans will definitely appreciate our latest effort to promote football and enhance the fan experience in our home stadium.”

The dedicated section for all away supporters will be Stand 4B which will be accessible via the main gate 1 and the inner gate 8.
