Away guide: Fleetwood

20 April 2014

Highbury Stadium, 

Park Avenue, 



Recommended road directions

Take the normal route to the northbound M6 (M40 and M42). Leave the M6 at Junction 32 and take the M55 towards Blackpool. Exit the M55 at Junction 3 and take the A585 towards Fleetwood. On the outskirts of the town you will come to a roundabout with Blackpool and Fylde College on your left. Continue straight on towards Fleetwood, but after the roundabout take the first left into Copse Road. After about a mile as you pass Fleetwood Fire station, branch left and turn left on to Radcliffe Road (going back on yourself but in parallel with Copse Road).Then take the next right into Stanley Road and the stadium is at the bottom of this road on your left.

Coach Travel

OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 8am. Travel prices are £26 for adults, £25 for students/seniors, and £24 for children. Places cost £3 extra for non-members. 

Travelling by rail?

For anyone travelling by rail the most convenient mainline station is Blackpool North. This station though is over seven miles away. Buses numbers 14 and 1 leave Blackpool town centre every 10 minutes and pass close to the stadium. Journey time is about 30 minutes and the fare £2.30. Alternatively you can use one of the famous Blackpool trams and get off at Stanley Road opposite the fire station. The fare is £2.30 and journey time approximately 40 minutes. Do check all travel times carefully as this is a Bank Holiday. 

Facilities for away fans

The stadium is modern having been completely re-built over the last five years, matching the team’s meteoric rise up the leagues with five promotions in just seven seasons. The latest addition to the ground is the impressive looking Parkside Stand first opened in March 2011. Away fans are mainly housed in the Percy Ronson terrace at one end of the stadium.  This terrace is covered, free from supporting pillars, and gives a good view. Visiting supporters are also allocated 300 seats in the Parkside Stand. If the away support is small then only the Parkside seats will be made available and not the Percy Ronson Terrace. There is no parking for away supporters at the stadium itself but there is plenty of street parking available in the area.

Around the stadium

Jim's Sports Bar at the ground admits away fans but gets very popular on matchdays. It is located at the back of the Memorial Stand. The Highbury Club, which is located adjacent to the away turnstiles, does not allow in visiting supporters. If you are feeling hungry there is a handy fish and chip shop, located across the road from the ground in Highbury Avenue. Fleetwood is about a 10-15 minute walk away. Here there are plenty of pubs including a Wetherspoon outlet the Thomas Drummond on London Street. Alcohol is available inside the stadium but only to away fans sitting in the Parkside Stand.
