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 David Hamilton is on hand approximately 1 hour before the match is scheduled to start. David 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 Fair Play handshake takes place, accompanied by the Premier League anthem ‘My Saturday Self’.
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.
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 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times while using the facilities on the Family Area concourse.
