FANS are being urged to arrive early for Saturday’s match against Hartlepool United to enjoy the series of entertainment planned for the final game of the season.
Addicks skipper Johnnie Jackson will lift the League One trophy after the final whistle, while there will be appearances by renowned opera singers Martin Toal and Victoria Stanyon.
Capital FM DJ Dave Berry will also be interviewing key Charlton figures pitchside.
Bartram’s bar will open from 11am, while the Valley turnstiles will open 15 minutes early at 1.15pm.
The entertainment will begin at 2.15pm.
All tickets for Saturday’s final match of 2011/12 are sold out in home areas.
The club’s commercial centre is keeping a waiting list of fans for the match against Hartlepool United (3pm) - call 0871 226 1905 for details.
A WIN against Hartlepool United on Saturday will see the Addicks become one of only nine clubs to have ever gained more than 100 points in a season.
Saturday’s draw against Preston North End took the club’s tally in 20011/12 to 98 points, so only victory will do against Pools to set yet another record.
THE winner of Charlton’s 2011/12 player of the year award will be named on Sunday night.
Fans have placed their votes at the last two home games and the winner will be crowned at the annual end-of-season supporters’ dinner.
Fans have also been selecting players for a new Addicks Hall of Fame - see cafc.co.uk for details.
