9am CAR PARK OPEN
The South Stand car park, behind the stadium, can be parked in for free; please arrive early to secure a spot. After the game, fans can now leave via the south of the car park to exit Kings Park along Gloucester Road and so miss the traffic along Kings Park Drive.
Any Blue Badge or other drivers who have previously parked along Kings Park Drive should note that there are now enforceable parking restrictions along that road. These have been requested to ensure a safer and quicker exit from the ground post-match. The parking restriction is enforceable by the local authority’s civil enforcement officers and can incur a fine of £70.
Any drivers who do not park in the available car parks should please respect local residents’ driveways and relevant parking restrictions. Enforcement officers are active on matchdays.
9.30am REFRESHMENTS AVAILABLE
Our concourse within the West/Main Stand is open to serve a range of drinks and food from 9:30am until 12:15pm.
9:30am TURNSTILES OPEN
Supporters can take their seats from 9:30am. Please bear in mind that for supporters’ own safety, there will be 100% searches of every single supporter as well as bag searching/tagging. Please don’t bring a bag unless you absolutely need to and ensure you arrive at least one hour prior to kick-off to avoid delays.
Make the most of our meal deal which is a pie, burger or hot dog, chocolate bar and a pint for £7 or replace the pint with a soft/hot drink option for £6 for the bundle.
The Junior Cherries meal deal is also great value at just £2.50 when you present your Junior Cherries membership card.
