If a kit is purchased that is the wrong size, then it may not be possible to change on an actual day due to availability of kit in the club shop. Furthermore, if any item of the kit has been personalised and is then the wrong size this cannot be exchanged, and an additional cost will be incurred to replace the item of kit

  • For match day birthday parties, all matches are subject to change by Lincoln City Football Club. If there is any change to the fixture, then the following options will be provided whereby there is no league game:

    • If the fixture changes from a league to a cup game, we will not be able to honour the matchday aspects however the above will apply. This is due to restrictions placed on clubs through cup competitions
