What is the ticket information?
There are absolutely no tickets to buy or collect on the day. It won’t change.
In what position are we?
City fans are located on the south stand, which is an open terrace.
At what time will the turnstiles open?
The turnstiles will open at 11am – research will be undertaken before entering the ground, so please be careful as this will slow down the process.
How can I get to the ground?
The postal code is B61 0DR
Leave the M42 at junction 1 and take the second exit at the roundabout onto the A38 towards Bromsgrove. After half a mile turn right at the first traffic light onto Birmingham Road. Cross the mini roundabout with the Crabmill Public House on the left. The land is on the right.
Where is the best place to park?
The stadium itself does not have a parking lot for the fans. However, there are many paid car parks nearby because the land is quite close to the city center.
Stourbridge Road (B61 8DA) – Is currently in use as a COVID test site therefore unavailable.
Other municipal parking lots include Parkside, Market Street, School Drive, and Recreation Road. This is where outside fans are encouraged to park. Paid and posted car parks operate at 80 pence per hour and are strictly controlled.
Parkside Medical Practice, located on Stourbridge Road and just past Parkside Hall, is also available for parking. The cost is only £ 1 for the day.
There is sometimes on-road parking available on Birmingham Road. Do not park on the yellow lines as there are screening officers outside. Blackmore Lane is for residents and visitors only.
Do not park at Bromsgrove Retail Park – it has a time limit and fines are imposed.
Which station is closest to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
Bromsgrove station is south of the stadium – about a mile / 35 minute walk. If you intend to arrive by train, it is suggested to take a taxi if you intend to go directly to the ground.
Recommended ads for outdoor fans?
With an earlier kick-off, the choice of ads is limited. Wetherspoons in the city center is the main place city fans should head to.
Food available in the area?
The city center is 800 meters / 10 minutes walk. Here you will find a number of independent and chain restaurants and food stores.
Bromsgrove Sporting is considering additional restoration off the pitch, but this is not guaranteed.
