Gates open at Cardiff Arms Park at 11am and supporters are urged to arrive early to avoid any queues and make the most out of the pre-match build up.

Due to an anticipated capacity crowd, the ground will be segregated and there will be no movement between the north and south stands, unless a Cardiff Athletic Club member using the club house.

There will also be extra bag searches, outer cordon checks and supporters are reminded that they must use their designated entrance.
