Away guide: Rodney Parade

11 April 2014

Wanderers travel to South Wales on Saturday (k.o 3.07pm) and wwfc.com are here with all the info you'll need for the trip.

Rodney Parade

Newport,

South Wales,

NP19 0UU

Wanderers have sold their intial allocation and tickets are now only available on the day from Newport.

Recommended road directions

Take the A404 south, leading to the A404(M) and continue to the westbound M4. Leave the M4 at Junction 24 and take the B4237, signposted Newport (E). After approximately 2.5 five miles turn left at a set of traffic lights, signposted B4237 (there is also the George pub on a right hand corner). Go under a bridge and at the next set of traffic lights turn right into Corporation Road. After passing an ATS garage on your right, you will see the away supporters’ entrance on your left. For the stadium main entrance take the next left into Grafton Road.

Coach Travel

OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 10.30am. Travel prices are £19 for adults, £18 for students/seniors, and £17 for children. Places cost £3 extra for non-members. The preferred way to book is by calling into the Vere Suite today. If you wish to book by phone (01296 429307) or by email (bookings@owwsa.co.uk) you need to do so by Thursday at 5pm. After that time OWWSA cannot guarantee you a seat on the coach. They will try and accommodate everyone who books this way, until the coach is full.

Travelling by rail?

There is a good service from London Paddington with the fastest services taking a little under to hours. Newport railway station is situated around a quarter of a mile away from the stadium. Exit the station and turn left along the main (Queensway) road. Follow this road until you reach a large roundabout. Take the pedestrian underpass underneath the roundabout and at the centre turn left towards Clarence Place/River Usk. After you have come back up to street level you will see a river bridge in front of you. Cross the bridge and take the first right hand turn into Rodney Parade and the stadium is on the left.

Facilities for away fans

Away fans are mostly housed on one side of the Bisley Stand. This stand is all seated and covered and being relatively new the facilities inside are good. In addition a small temporary block of open seating is also made available at the South End. The seating in the Bisley Stand gives the better and more comfortable view, but both areas share the same facilities. There is a food outlet just inside the ground by the turnstiles. The entrance to the away supporters section is at the opposite end of the stadium to the home areas and is accessed along Corporation Road (so no need to go through the main stadium entrance). It is poorly signposted and is literally a small pathway situated in-between some residential houses. There are a couple of blue poles that mark the entrance. Street parking is possible but pay attention to any parking restriction signs. Alternatively you can use one of the city centre car parks, such as Kingsway Shopping Centre, which costs £2 for five hours.

Around the stadium

There is a Clubhouse at the ground (inside the home main entrance) which admits away supporters. In addition away fans have their own bar at the top of the Bisley Stand. Recommended local hostelry is the Wetherspoon pub on Chepstow Road called the “Godfrey Morgan” which is only a 10-minute walk from the away turnstiles. 

Along Chepstow Road there are a number of food outlets including a couple of fish and chip shops and a Greggs Bakery. Otherwise the city centre is a 10-15 minute walk away where there are plenty of pubs to be found including three more Wetherspoons outlets.
