Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the westbound M40 to Junction 10 and follow A43 towards Northampton to pick up northbound M1. At Junction 32 take the eastbound M18 (sign posted Doncaster/Hull). Leave the M18 at Junction 3 and take the A6182 towards Doncaster (the stadium is well signposted from Junction 3 and is about 1½ miles away). Go past a retail park on your left and at the next traffic lights (which has the Lakeside Pub visible behind it) turn left onto White Rose Way. The Lakeside Shopping Centre is now on your right (the stadium is located directly behind the shopping centre). At the next island turn right onto the industrial estate and after passing the Tesco distribution centre on your right, turn right at the bottom of the road and the stadium is further down on your left.
Mileage from High Wycombe = 164 (approx. journey time 2 hours 45 mins)
Recommended area for car parking
There are just 1,000 car parking spaces at the stadium that cost £5 per car. There are 60 parking spaces reserved for disabled fans, which must be booked prior to match day. Alternatively, there a number of companies on the nearby industrial park that offer match day parking at around £3-£4 per vehicle. If you happen to arrive a couple of hours before kickoff then there is also some free street parking to be had in this area.
Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 09:30. Travel prices are £22 for adults, £21 for seniors, and £20 for juniors. The price for non-members is £27 (no refund if game is cancelled and the coaches have left their depot). If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) you need to do so by Thursday 9th August at 17.00 hrs.
Using the train?
London North Eastern Railway operate a regular service out of London Kings Cross, fastest journey time 1h 35m. Doncaster Station is just less than two miles away and First Bus Service Number 56 runs to Lakeside Shopping Centre from Doncaster Interchange Bus station. If you do have time on your hands and you fancy the walk (around 25-30 minutes) then as you come out of the station turn right and then keep straight on this road (the A6182 Trafford Way) and you will eventually reach the stadium complex on your left.
Facilities for away fans
The capacity is 15,231 (all seated). Away fans are located in the One Call North Stand at one end of the stadium, where around 3,344 fans can be accommodated. The view of the playing action, leg room, and facilities are all good, although fans are set well back from the pitch. Note that cash is not accepted at the turnstiles. Away tickets can be purchased from the Club Doncaster Academy Reception in the North West corner of the Stadium.
Spare time on your hands?
With the stadium located on the outskirts of the town there are not many hostelries nearby. One option however is the “Lakeside”. This is a Beefeater outlet near Stadium Way. If you are in the town centre the “Cask Corner” comes recommended. This is in Cleveland Street which is about a 10-minute walk from the station. Coming recommended by DRFC is “The Leopard” in West St just a four-minute walk from the train station. This has received good reviews from away fans. Finally, the Belle Vue Bar is situated on the outside of the West Stand and welcomes visiting fans.
