This is a Category B game so match day prices range from FREE to £18 in the terraces and from £8 to £22 in the seats. Remember if you buy in advance online or in person (by 4pm the day prior to a game) you can save money by buying at ‘in advance’ prices.

Free match day parking for 500 cars is available to fans at Fairlands Valley car park to the north of the ground. Parking is available in nearby residential streets but we ask fans to be considerate with their parking and not to block driveways and cause inconvenience for local residents
Please do not park on the grass verges alongside the A602 as your vehicle is likely to be ticketed by the local authorities. Please also do not park in the adjacent Roaring Meg retail park. New parking rules imposed last year by the Roaring Meg management restrict parking to 90 minutes on a match day, which come in to effect two hours before kick-off. Anyone exceeding this time limit could face a £100 fine.

Located in the south-east corner of the ground, just past the away turnstiles, it's easily accessible for all supporters.
