Derry City play their home games in the newly redeveloped Brandywell Stadium.
We strongly encourage supporters to arrive in time and to listen to the instructions and advice of the stewards.
The Brandywell Stadium is located on the Lone Moor Rd in the Brandywell area of the city. It’s around a 15 minute walk from the city centre.
Address: Brandywell Stadium, Lone Moor Rd, Derry BT48 9LA
Getting Your Tickets
It is recommended that home fans buy their tickets in advance to avoid delays or disappointment.
Away fans can purchase tickets online here or at the ground on match nights from the outlet at Long Tower Youth Club (far end of greyhound track, beside car park).
All tickets (including Season Tickets) must be scanned by a steward upon entry.
U12s are admitted free, how will this be managed?
U12s are admitted free to the game, but need to be accompanied by a paying adult. It is not necessary to obtain a ticket for U12, however their access will be recorded by a steward by means of scanning a barcode. In future a separate access for those bringing children to the game will be provided.
Please note, access for U12s without a ticket does not guarantee access to a specific seat. If you wish to sit with U12s it will be necessary to occupy areas of unreserved seating (likely to be blocks C,D,K,L,M) of the Southend Stand. Please note that U12s will not be granted access to the Mark Farren Stand without a valid ticket.
Are terrace tickets available?
Terrace tickets are not available for any fixtures in the Brandywell.
Are there facilities for the disabled/wheelchair users?
Disabled facilities are available in both stands, however the majority of spaces for disabled users in the Mark Farren Stand have been reserved for season ticket holders. If you require disabled seats additional seating is available in the Southend Stand.
