The Double Tree by Hilton Hotel is situated as part of the Main West Stand at StadiumMK.
Stadium MK is a professional football ground. It is not possible for parents or other spectators wishing to take photographs to be permitted over the barriers onto the pitch surrounds. Therefore ISFA has appointed RWT Photography to take the photographs and make a DVD of this match. Photographs and the DVD will be available from their website at www.rwt-photography.co.uk.
Please note that large photographic equipment is not permitted in the stadium – eg tripods and long lenses.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO SPECTATORS
Spectators are always advised to check kick-off times with the home school before travelling.
Most schools welcome spectators wishing to attend ISFA Cup matches. However, spectators who are not parents or connected to the home school are reminded that schools are private property. Please contact the school in advance to ascertain the specific procedures that are in place.
Spectators are reminded that schools must take great care with security and need to know who is visiting the school and for what purpose. Spectators are therefore asked to co-operate with this understandable need for security.
