The Morton support will be accommodated within the West Stand (shed) at Tannadice Park tomorrow, entering is via cash turnstiles 17, 18, 19 and 20 from Tannadice Street.
Stewards will offer assistance to wheelchair users at the away end of the ground but they may be located in the designated area away from the visiting support. Wheelchair users are free but carers have to pay.
Dundee United have a flag policy, which is: no flags unless on a cane less than 3ft in length; no flag surfing; banners must have a valid fire approval certificate and will be inspected prior to admission. Banners will be displayed only under the direction of safety stewards.
Drums are not permitted within the stadium. There is zero tolerance as regards unacceptable conduct and like all Scottish grounds, Dundee United have a searching policy as a condition of entry.
Smoking, which includes E-cigarettes, is not permitted within Tannadice. Like most other clubs, Dundee United operate a searching policy prior to admission to the ground.
Entry is pay at the gate and admission is £20 for adults and £10 for concessions.
*Concessions MUST have photographic proof at point of purchase and will also be asked for proof at turnstiles.
Travel by Road: For those using sat nav, the address and postcode is: Tannadice Street, Dundee, DD3 7JW. Follow the M8 to M80 then signs for A9 Inverness.
Follow A9 to Perth then A90 to Dundee. When in Dundee carry on along A90 Kingsway. At the next roundabout, take the third exit to Old Glamis Road.
At the next roundabout take a left into Clepington Road, then the next right into Provost Road and finally left into Sandeman Road. Tannadice Street is on your right.
Travel by Rail: The train takes between one and a half to two hours from Glasgow Queen Street but please remember not all journeys are direct; a change at Edinburgh Waverley may be required and this will extend journey times.
Queen Street to Perth then change for Dundee or alternatively, Queen Street to Edinburgh then train to Dundee. Dundee train station is about two miles from the ground, which is a 35- to 40-minute walk. A taxi is probably the best option for anyone unfamiliar with the walk.
Supporters coaches will be directed to Neish Street, which is opposite the stadium, at no charge.
Those attending by private car are advised to find on-street parking around the stadium as there are no car parking facilities available. There is a road traffic order in force on match days and certain roads and streets are closed in and around the immediate vicinity of Tannadice.
This is in effect approximately one hour and 15 minutes prior to kick-off until 20 minutes after kick-off, and the traffic points are put on again approximately 20 minutes prior to the end of the match until the traffic reverts back to normal.
