Tickets and travel: Oxford United (A), 07/05

5 May 2016

Tickets for the final Sky Bet League 2 game of the season at Oxford United are no longer available.

This is an all-ticket fixture which means tickets had to be purchased no later than noon on Friday. Oxford United have sold out their allocation while Wanderers sold 1,047 tickets to their own fans.

Pre-booked tickets can be collected at the Away Ticket Office from 1.30pm.

Travel
By Adrian Wood

Recommended road directions
From Wycombe take the westbound M40, exiting at junction 8 taking the A40 towards Oxford. The stadium is well signposted, with brown football signs pointing the way. At the Headington roundabout (with McDonalds on the left) bear left onto the Oxford Ring Road (A4142). Continue over the Cowley flyover and go straight on at the Littlemore roundabout. At the next roundabout (with Sainsburys on the left), take the left turning (signed Reading / Oxford Science Park) onto the A4074. Keep following the brown football signs and you eventually come to the ground on your left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 30

Recommended area for car parking
There are plenty of FREE car parking spaces around the stadium and at the adjacent Ozone cinema and bowling alley complex. They do tend to fill up quickly so arrive in plenty of time. As expected it can take a time to exit after the match.

Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 13.00. Travel prices are £9 for adults, £8 for seniors, and £7 for juniors. Places cost £3 extra for non-members. If you wish to book by phone (01494 520179) or by e-mail (bookings@owwsa.co.uk) you need to do so by Thursday May 5th at 17.00 hrs.

Using the train?
This is certainly not recommended as Oxford railway station is over four miles away. If you do end up at the station (or in the City Centre) you can catch Oxford Bus Company Service, Number 5 that runs to Knights Road in Blackbird Leys Road. This is just a short walk from the ground. The service runs every five minutes. The journey from the station usually takes around 30 minutes.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 12,500 (all seated). Away fans are normally housed on one side of the North Stand, towards the open end of the ground. This stand is shared with home supporters. The facilities within and the views of the playing action are excellent, and there is also good leg room. The atmosphere within the ground is not bad, with the home fans in the Oxford Mail Stand doing their best to raise it.

Facilities around the ground
With the closure of the adjacent ‘Priory' pub then there is a limited choice of bars near to the stadium. One possibility is ‘The George’ at Littlemore just off the ring road (not far from Sainsburys). The stadium is about a 10-minute walk away. Another option is the Holiday Inn Express Hotel on the corner behind the Oxford Mail and South Stand, which has a fair sized bar. Meanwhile there is a cinema and bowling alley complex located adjacent to the stadium, called Ozone. Inside the bowling alley there is a bar, which also has SKY TV and a fast food outlet. Another traditional pub in walking distance (15-20 minutes) of the Kassam Stadium is the Catherine Wheel in Sandford-on-Thames. Otherwise alcohol is also served within the ground.
