Matchday Entertainment

Matchday Entertainment

Matchday entertainment begins when the stadium opens, approximately 90 minutes prior to kick-off.

The afternoon begins with popular music, selected by our resident DJ, which is played over the stadium PA system.

Our stadium announcer Ivan Berry is on hand approximately 1 hour before the match is scheduled to start. Ivan will announce the teams to the crowd about 30 min prior to kick-off. Confirmation of the Home line-up is given again just before kick-off and both team line-ups also appear on the stadium big screens.

Look out for birthday announcements and welcome greetings, which generally appear on the big screen about 30 minutes before kick-off and again at half-time. 

Keep on the look out for our roving camera, which operates in and around the stands, catching images of fans and sampling the atmosphere in the build up to the big game. 

Both teams emerge from the players’ entrance in front of the Cottage a few minutes prior to kick-off to the stirring sound of ‘Palladio’ by ‘Escala’. 

The Fulham players often emerge for the second-half to ‘I’ve Got a Feeling’ by ‘Black Eyed Peas’ or ‘London Calling’ by ‘The Clash’.

Half-time entertainment varies from game-to-game but look out for regular junior shoot-out competitions down at the Hammersmith End and other on-pitch activities. 

Family Area

There are additional fun activities for junior ticket holders and families located in the Family Areas of the Johnny Haynes Stand. (Blocks A, AL, K, KL)

The gates to the stadium open 90 minutes before kick-off and the entertainment starts right away on the concourse underneath Block K. Pre-match activities include face painters & entertainers. There is also a chance to have your picture taken on the fantastic Fulham players wall, or with Club mascot Billy the Badger. You can also show your skills by playing against other young fans on state-of-the-art computer consoles. 

Please note that activities are restricted to ticket holders with seats in the Family Area. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times while using the facilities on the Family Area concourse.

Persistent Standing

Dear supporters, you will be aware that persistent standing in seated areas presents a safety risk. The Sports Ground Safety Authority who licence the Club’s activities considers seated areas to be designed for sitting, and do not have the additional forms of structural protection which are required for areas of standing.

On 25th June, the Government announced that it will commission an external analysis of evidence relating to its all-seater policy.

The Sports Ground Safety Authority has a range of enforcement powers under the Football Spectators Act 1989, including the ability to prosecute for a breach of any condition within the licence and may lead to a reduction in the stadium capacity.

The Club is asking all supporters for your assistance to comply with the current legislation and would politely ask that you sit in your allocated seat and do not stand up to view the game. There will also be increased stewarding activity on match day seeking to enforce compliance where necessary. Where persistent standing is identified then supporters may face ejection from the stadium and other club sanctions including withdrawal of season tickets and ticketing privileges.

While this takes place, the all-seater policy remains the current Government policy.

Thank you in anticipation.

Security Awareness

Please can we ask all supporters to continue to be vigilant during your journey to Craven Cottage and throughout your match experience.

We all have responsibility for our own personal safety and If you see something out of the ordinary or suspicious please report it to a steward or Fulham staff member so that it can be investigated further and escalated to the emergency services if appropriate.

The Club has several security measures in place to enhance your safety, these include our turnstile searching regime. To assist us to reduce entry time delays you are asked kindly that you do not bring larger or unnecessary bags or items with you to make that searching easier and faster when supporters are accessing the ground.
