Supporter Guide: Wycombe vs Sunderland

Some bits you might need to know for Saturday.

6 March 2019

For Wycombe, it's the biggest crowd of the season so far, and potentially a sell-out. For Sunderland, it's a first ever visit to Adams Park... and here's a few things you might need to know.

The general stadium information for First Time Fans, including directions, can be found here.

Headlines
- There will be no tickets available on the day; Wycombe fans must buy in advance. Sunderland's allocation is completely sold out
- Please allow extra time for your journey, due to increased traffic around the stadium, and arrive early at the ground to ease the queues at the ticket collection point and turnstiles
- There will be Fan Zones at each end of the car park; Sunderland fans are invited to use the Printkick Fan Zone by the stadium gates, while Wanderers supporters have use of a marquee at the far end
- Sunderland fans are accommodated in both the Lords Builders Merchants and Beechdean Stands for this fixture

Tickets
This fixture is all-ticket, meaning there'll be none available on the day and you must book in advance. As of Wednesday evening, there was only limited availability remaining for Wanderers fans, in the end blocks of the Frank Adams Stand and the terrace. Call 01494 441118, visit the shop at Adams Park or go online at tickets.wwfc.com (note: previous ticket history is required).

Pre-booked tickets can be collected from the blue pod to the left of the shop (this also applies to Wanderers fans looking to collect their 2019/20 season ticket).

Sunderland supporters - you snapped up each and every one of the 2,728 tickets available to you!

The club are required to remind visitors to Adams Park that the stadium regulations prohibit any away fan from purchasing a ticket in home areas, and anybody found to be violating that rule could face ejection from the ground, so please do not take the risk.

Accessing your seat
Sunderland fans whose seat is in the Lords Builders Merchants Stand should enter via the turnstiles at Gate 2, to the left of the stadium as you look from the car park.

Away supporters whose seat is in the Beechdean Stand should walk to the far end of the car park and enter via the turnstiles at Gate 4.

Please note that all supporters are required to sit in the seat specified on their ticket.

Seating plan
Regardless of where you're sitting in the stadium, it is easy to find your seat. A seating plan is available here and at the entrance to the stadium, and on the back of your tickets, while stewards are on hand to assist with any queries you may have.

Bus travel
The Arriva matchday service will be running an additional vehicle, and will attempt to conduct a second shuttle, depending on local traffic.

The standard fare is £3 single or £4 return, irrespective of where passengers join or leave the service. Children aged 12 and under are charged half price (£1.50 single or £2 return). 

Saturday 3pm kick-offs:
Handy Cross Hub – 12.55 and 13.55
Rail Station – 13.05 and 14.05
Frogmoor – 13.10 and 14.10
Bus Station – 13.15 and 14.15
Adams Park – 13.30 and 14.30

The return service will depart from Adams Park approximately 20 minutes after full-time, calling at the same pick-up/drop-off points.

Parking
The lower car park is fully booked, and the upper car park is available on a first-come-first-served basis at £5 per car, but is likely to become full by 2pm. At this stage, a sign will be placed at the top of Hillbottom Road to alert fans to seek parking elsewhere.

The club have secured additional parking at the Pladis (United Biscuits) site at the top of Hillbottom Road, again at £5 per car, while there are other options along the road into the stadium.

Street parking is also available in the vicinity of the ground, however, supporters are warned that traffic wardens patrol the area regularly and we would ask you to park sensibly, respecting our neighbours in the Sands area.

Sunderland's coaches will be parked behind the Synergy building, immediately to the right of the stadium gates as you face them.

Fan zones
Sunderland supporters are invited to make exclusive use of the Printkick Fan Zone inside the main gate, with a beer tent and BBQ available.

For Wanderers fans, there is a pop-up marquee at the far end of the car park, with a BBQ and mini-bar serving two lagers and one ale on tap.

These will be open at half-time; however, fans are advised that they cannot bring drinks from the bar back into the stadium.

Meanwhile, smoking areas will be made available outside Gates 2 and 4 for away fans at half-time. Wycombe fans will be able to make use of the usual smoking areas during this period.

Bars and kiosks
The Caledonian Suite is open for home fans only (before and after the game, and at half-time), but Monty's bar will be closed to the public in order to accommodate additional VIP hospitality guests.

Inside the stadium, each stand is serviced by a kiosk serving hot and cold food and drink, including burgers, hot dogs, pies and chips, plus tea, coffee and fizzy drinks, chocolate and sweets.

Charity collection
Supporters of both clubs are politely asked to contribute what they can to a collection for the Chilterns MS Centre - the club's medical charity partner - which provides a wide range of services for local people with MS, as well as an oxygen chamber which is used by Wanderers players during their rehabilitation from injury.

Volunteers from the charity will be around the car park before the game.

Cashpoint
There is no cashpoint at the stadium, so fans are advised to bring sufficient cash with them. The nearest free cashpoint is at the Tesco store, around 10 minutes' walk away.

50/50 matchday draws
The club operates two 50/50 matchday draws for all fans, giving them the chance to win several hundred pounds from the half-time lottery. Tickets can be purchased for £1 (blue) or £2 (orange) each from vendors around the stadium, with half of each sale going into the two prize funds, and the other half benefitting the club.

Matchday programme
The matchday programme ‘Parklife’ is on sale for £3.50 from a number of outlets around the ground. Included in the 64 pages are an in-depth look at the opposition, plus a range of features relating to Wycombe Wanderers and the wider world of football.

Anything else?
Keep an eye on the club's social channels - particularly Twitter (@wwfcofficial) for regular updates ahead of the game.

We look forward to welcoming all visitors to the stadium on Saturday, and wish you a safe journey.
