Make the Kenny a flag-filled fortress for tonight's big game
Excitement is building ahead of tonight's play-off semi-final second leg against Blackpool - and we want you to bring your favourite LTFC flags to hopefully wave the boys on their way to Wembley!
With the home sections of the ground packed and the tie perfectly poised, it is time to make Kenilworth Road a flag-filled fortress so the boys run out to a sea of orange.
As well as flags flying all over the ground, there will be a mosaic in the Kenilworth Road stand to welcome Nathan and the team onto the pitch.
We are looking for volunteers to help lay the cards out on the seats in the Kenny End from 2.45pm, so if you have an hour or so spare, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course, the flags and mosaic aren't the only things happening from the stadium opening at 5.30pm to crank up the atmosphere for our last game at Kenilworth Road for the 2016-17 season.
To mark the occasion, there will be a number of extra activities going on around the ground, including:
Happy Harry and Hatty will be handing out special sticks of ‘Luton Rock’ for children ahead of the kick off.
KENNY END CARD DISPLAY
To help inspire the players with an extra show of colour and solidarity, we’ll be laying on a card display in the Kenilworth Road end, so if you’ve got a card on your seat, stand up and hold it aloft as the players run out for kick off.
PLAYERS SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS
A number of players will be signing autographs between 6.45 and 7.15 by Happy Harry’s lunch shack, and outside the Club shop at the top of Kenilworth Road. Please bring something for the players to sign, or you can buy an autograph book in the club shop.
SAUSAGES AND CIDER
Our catering team are converting the burger van in the Kenny End to become a specialist Sausage and Cider outlet, featuring a number of delicious specialist sausages, and thirst quenching ciders. You’ll be able to purchase a cider and a hot dog with the sausage of your choice for just £6, or £3 separately.

COME ON YOU HATTERS!
- You don't need permission to bring a flag into the ground if it measure 4' x 3' (or smaller) in size. Handheld flags are generally fine as long as they aren't any bigger than this.
- If the flag is bigger than 4' x 3' you'll need to contact us so that we can ensure that the flag is to be hung somewhere appropriate.
- With small, handheld flags, it's best if the handle is plastic and or on fairly thin dowling (no broomhandles please!)
- Fire Retardant
- Flags that are larger than 4' x 3' have to be fire retardant. Before we can allow the flag into the ground, we'll need to see a valid fire safety certificate.
- Suitability – IMPORTANT
- The Club will not accept any flags that could be considered in any way abusive, political, defamatory, enticing racial hatred or any other kind of discrimination. We reserve the right to remove any flags that stewards or club officials consider to be inappropriate.
