Specific advice for away fans in respect of condition of entry e.g. searching policy, unacceptable behaviour?

QOS have adopted a robust and thorough search policy for spectators entering the ground to ensure that ground rules and regulations are strictly adhered to, especially in relation to pyrotechnic devices and controlled containers. All bags will be searched and spectators presenting themselves for entry may also be subject to search. Spectators who refuse to be searched by stewards will be denied entry to the ground.

No persons will be admitted to the ground who are deemed to be under the influence of alcohol. This will be strictly enforced.

Palmerston Park is a non-smoking venue, this includes e cigarettes and other such devices. Stewards are empowered to eject spectators who disobey these rules.

All spectators are required to abide by our acceptable behavior policy.

Queen of the South FC look forward to hosting you at Palmerston and wish you a safe and enjoyable journey to and from our stadium. Further information can be accessed via ourwebsite and social media.
