Access and Exit Routes

Access and exits routes are different for the new stadium and awareness of these is vital for supporters.

Please familiarise yourself with the colour coded access route written on your match ticket. This is the only way you will be permitted to enter and leave the Stadium and access and exit via these routes may take longer than expected.

Please make sure you know which way you need to enter and leave the stadium and allow for extra time than you expect.

Supporters are strongly advised to arrive at the stadium at least one hour before kick-off and enjoy the pre-match atmosphere. Gates open at 6pm and all bars and restaurants will be in operation from this time.

There is no parking in the vicinity of the stadium and supporters are encouraged to use public transport. Extra Darts will be in operation and passengers should choose their station depending on their access route.
