FA Cup tie to be played on a Saturday but Bycars stand will be closed

Port Vale’s FA Cup second round game against Yeovil Town will be played on a Saturday but the Bycars stand will be shut during the game.

The Valiants have become accustomed to moving their match whenever Premier League neighbours are also at home but the FA has approved the game to take place on the same day as Stoke’s fixture.

Unfortunately, as a result of the two games being played at the same time, this means that the Bycars Stand and the Corner Stand at Vale Park will not be open for the FA Cup fixture versus Yeovil Town. This will help the Club in its deployment of staff for this game…

A club statement adds: “Club officials contacted Staffordshire Police with a request for them to consider whether Port Vale could go ahead and schedule their FA Cup game against Yeovil Town for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday the 2ndDecember, knowing that Stoke City were already scheduled to face Swansea City at the same time.

“Staffordshire Police gave due consideration to this request and gave their agreement and support for both games to go ahead at the same time. Port Vale Football Club would like thank Staffordshire Police for their assistance and consideration in this matter.

“Unfortunately, as a result of the two games being played at the same time, this means that the Bycars Stand and the Corner Stand at Vale Park will not be open for the FA Cup fixture versus Yeovil Town. This will help the Club in its deployment of staff for this game.”
