The Ticket Office can also be contacted on the usual contact telephone numbers – 01922 651 414/416.

The Conference Department will still be operated to facilitate current activity (01922 651 418)

The WFC Community Department will reduce its staffing operations accordingly and it will continue to deliver to schools unless Government guidelines change.

We will keep supporters updated in what is a unique and ever-changing landscape.

“These are unprecedented times,” explained Chairman, Leigh Pomlett. “We are awaiting guidance from the EFL and other governing bodies but, in the meantime, we are taking actions to protect our staff, our supporters and our club.

“The health and well-being of our staff and supporters is paramount and these measures are designed to protect their welfare.

“Where they can, I would encourage supporters to continue to purchase their 2020/21 season-tickets, which are available online, and help the club continue to generate cash at this time.”
