The club have announced the heightened security measures following recent terrorist incidents in London and Manchester.

Following consultations with local authorities, including Norfolk Constabulary, there will be an enhanced security presence at all matches played at the stadium and there will be limitations on items that can be brought into the ground, including restrictions on bag sizes. Bags larger than 40cm x 35cm x 19cm will not be allowed into the stadium.

Fans can also expect an increased level of checks and searches prior to entering the stadium.

Due to these extra security arrangements supporters are advised to arrive as early as possible to the ground.
