Kick Off

Our 2019/20 campaign kicks off this weekend with the first of our Betfred League Cup Group E matches, when we play host to Premiership side Motherwell on Saturday at 3pm.

For supporters attending the match, ticket prices agreed by the clubs are:

Adults – £12.00

Concessions - £6.00

Under 16s - £6.00

Entry is by ticket only.

The Arena ticket offices will open from 12.30pm with the ticket office in the away section of the BDS Stand opening an hour later.

Please note that the BDS Stand ticket office is CASH ONLY. If you wish to purchase your ticket by card then you should use the Arena ticket office.

Sections six – eight of the BDS Digital (East) Stand have been set aside for AWAY supporters. They should enter the stadium via turnstiles three and four.

Wheelchair access for away supporters is on the south side of BDS Digital stand. There is a lay-by on King Street for vehicles to drop their passengers for flat access to the ground. Disabled parking is available on the north side of the BDS Digital Stand or at the Arena car park. The cost of entry of one personal assistant is included in the price of the concession ticket.

Turnstiles for both HOME and AWAY fans will be open at 2.15 p.m.

Separate catering outlets and toilets will be available for use within the stadium.

Catering is available to ALL supporters in the QOS Arena café where a full menu is available before kick-off. The bar under the Gates Stand will also be open for refreshments.

Car parking is available in the Arena car park.  Supporter’s buses including minibuses will NOT be allowed to park in the Arena car park.  Therefore it is requested that buses/minibuses drop off their passengers in Terregles St/King Street and thereafter park on College Mains road just off the roundabout with the A76 on the town bypass (adjacent to Curry’s/PC World, as the other side at Aldi is the access road to the ambulance depot and is extremely busy). Pick up should be the same location.

There will be some on street parking restrictions but there will still be plenty of other on & off street parking available around the stadium.

There are no ongoing roadworks currently around Dumfries that may affect travel times to Palmerston Park. However, fans should check the Traffic Scotland website at for confirmation of any delays.

QOS have adopted a robust and thorough search policy for spectators entering the ground to ensure that ground rules and regulations are strictly adhered to, especially in relation to pyrotechnic devices and controlled containers. All bags will be searched and spectators presenting themselves for entry may also be subject to search. Spectators who refuse to be searched by stewards will be denied entry to the ground.

Palmerston Park is a non-smoking venue; this includes e cigarettes and other such devices. Stewards are empowered to eject spectators who disobey these rules. No persons will be admitted to the ground who are deemed to be under the influence of alcohol. This will be strictly enforced.

Please note there will be NO Saturday Kids Club this week.  It will return ahead of our first game at home in the Championship.
