Going to Southampton ?

By Car

Please be aware that it is not advisable to head towards the ground on a match day unless you have a specific pass for one of the nearby car parks. Surrounding roads are subject to police road closures and heavy congestion.

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WILL GIVE DIRECTIONS TO THOSE DRIVING TO THE ST MARY'S STADIUM ON NON-MATCHDAYS. DUE TO THE FACT THAT BRITANNIA ROAD IS SUBJECT TO A POLICE ROAD CLOSURE – DO NOT HEAD IN THE DIRECTION OF BRITANNIA ROAD ON A MATCH DAY.

How to get there

Parking around the St. Mary's Stadium is extremely limited so the club have set up numerous alternatives to enable you to get there comfortably, safely and efficiently.

Information from Chris Jacobs (Saints fan). Just wanted to let you guys know that anyone coming down to southampton by car on monday is best to park at ocean village which is about a 10 minute walk from st marys. Also parking is free after 6 pm so as a saints fan I'd advice an leicester fan to park at ocean village if their driving. Hopefully this will help your fans and i hope for a cracking match also not far away from a pub called the chapel arms which welcomes all away fans and always a great atmosphere.
Hope this helps the foxes that are travelling down.

 

By bus

A discounted Solent Dayrider or Southampton Dayrider is available to all match day and season ticket holders on match days only. This discount is £1 off a Southampton Dayrider (offer price is therefore £2) or £2 off a Solent Dayrider (offer price is therefore £4.00).

Both tickets entitle supporters to full use of the Bluestar, Solent Shuttle and Wilts & Dorset services in the appropriate area of validity. Vouchers must be detached from the Southampton FC match day or season ticket booklet by the driver of the first bus boarded and a Dayrider ticket will then be issued.

Conditions of the Dayrider are as per normal and are valid on all buses except Nightstar and certain other specific contracted services. The pass may be transferred to other users once the purchaser has finished using the ticket, but each individual must have a valid pass on each particular journey.

One of the 8,000 going to Nottingham ?

Nottingham Forest NG2 5FJ

From The North:
Leave the M1 at Junction 26 and take the A610 towards Nottingham and then signs for Melton Mowbray. Cross the River Trent and you will see the ground on your left. Alternatively as you approach Nottingham on the A610 you will pick up signs for 'football traffic'. Although following these seems to take you all round the outskirts of Nottingham you do eventually end up at the City Ground, along the A6011. 

From The South:
Leave the M1 at Junction 24 and take the A453 towards Nottingham. Then take the A52 East towards Grantham and then onto the A6011 into Nottingham. The ground is situated by the A6011.

An alternative route to the ground from the South; Leave the M1 at Junction 21a (Leicester East) and follow the A46 dual carriageway towards Newark. After around 20 miles take the A606 towards Nottingham. At the first roundabout that is the junction with the A52, take the 4th exit onto the A52, signposted towards Grantham. At the next roundabout turn left onto the A6011 towards Nottingham. The ground is about a mile down this road.

After the game it may be quicker to follow the A52 (Derby) signs and join the motorway at J25 . This applies to fans who are heading either North or South on the M1 . Although the route planners and Sat Navs say head for M1 Junction 24 , the A453 is notoriously bad for traffic and it can take up to an hour to get to Junction 24 . Although a slightly longer journey, when travelling south, getting to Junction 25 will take 20 minutes at the most and it is only five minutes down to Junction 24 once on the motorway'.

For those travelling to the Forest game by road from the South, be aware that the M1 is closed from Friday evening through to Sunday lunchtime at J19/20 whilst the old M6 bridge is demolished.

There are diversions in place but it will add some extra time to your journey to Nottingham (and home), so allow extra time to get there and don't expect to be home that early either.

Northbound traffic will be diverted off the M1 at junction 19 onto the M6 to junction 2 and then north on the M69 to rejoin the M1 at junction 21.

Southbound traffic will be signposted off the M1 at junction 21 onto the M69, A46, A45 and M45 to rejoin the M1 at Junction 17. The M1 southbound will remain open all the way down to junction 19 for A14 eastbound, M6 westbound and local traffic.     UPDATE For those travelling to the Forest game by road from further South, be aware that the M1 is planned to be closed from Friday evening through to Sunday lunchtime at J19/20 whilst the old M6 bridge is demolished.

Going to Doncaster ?

Doncaster Rovers

Directions DN4 5JW

From the A1(M) join M18 Eastbound at Junction 35 (signposted Hull) or from the M1 and join the M18 Eastbound at Junction 32.

Once on the M18, leave at Junction 3 and take the A6182 towards Doncaster (the stadium is well signposted from Junction 3 and is about one and a half miles away). You will pass a retail park on your left and then at the next island (which has the Lakeside Pub visible behind it) turn left onto White Rose Way. The Lakeside Shopping Centre is now on your right (the stadium is located directly behind the shopping centre). At the next island turn right onto the industrial estate and after passing the Tesco distribution centre on your right, turn right at the bottom of the road and the stadium is further down on your left.

There are just 362 car parking spaces at the stadium, which will mean that for the bigger games, parking will be at a premium. The cost of parking at the stadium is £5. A number of firms on the nearby industrial park, offer matchday parking at around £4 per vehicle. If you happen to arrive a couple of hours before kick off then there is also some free street parking to be had in this area.
