Manchester United v Manchester City (12.30pm KO) will be screened ahead of kick-off at The Valley, as well as CharltonTV’s popular pre-game show as Alan Curbishley and Ali Maxwell join Scott Minto in the studio.

The Meantime Fans’ Bar will remain open for an additional hour after the game, showing the post-match reaction from the CharltonTV studio, presented by DNEL Ltd.

Have fun in our Family Activity Zone

All young Addicks are invited to have a kick about with us in the Family Activity Zone (FAZ) ahead of kick-off against Barnsley this Saturday.

Our indoor FAZ will be open from 12.30pm until 2.30pm, while our outdoor FAZ will be open from 12.30pm until 2.15pm. 

Join the fun inside Valley Central’s FAZ and play table tennis, table football, pool or represent Charlton Athletic on FIFA! Younger Addicks can show off their colouring skills or draft a letter to their favourite Charlton men’s or women’s player in our letters to players box!

Outdoors, in the West Stand car park, you can jump into our popular two-v-two panna cage, take a shot at our inflatable target shooter and target donut games, and put your football skills to the test against fellow young fans. High scorers have the chance to win a prize!

Get your 2022/23 Charlton wear from the club shop

All three of the Addicks’ 2022/23 Castore kits can be purchased from the Valley Superstore, along with a range of training and travel wear.

The club shop will be open from 10am until kick-off (3pm) and will then open for an additional 30 minutes after the full-time whistle.

Meet Floyd and Harvey

Grab the opportunity to meet Charlton’s popular mascots Floyd and Harvey, who can always be found in and around The Valley ahead of the game!

Pose for photos with the pair and be sure to share your selfies with us on social media using #cafc for your chance to be featured on the big screen.

Valley Gold Crossbar Challenge
