Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the normal route to the northbound M6 (M49 and M42). Stay on the motorway until Junction 32 and there take the M55 signposted Blackpool, Fleetwood, Preston North. The M55 joins Yeadon Way after approximately 12 miles, which takes traffic directly to Seasiders Way and Bloomfield Road Stadium. The ground is roughly located about halfway between the Pleasure Beach and the Tower and is about a 1/4 of a mile inland from the south shore.
Mileage from High Wycombe = 219 (approx. journey time 3½ hours) *
* (I advise checking on the day for motorway roadworks and if necessary, allow extra time).
Recommended area for car parking
Parking on-site is limited, however there are plenty of pay and display council car parks within the vicinity of the stadium. Parking on those car parks costs £3.50 for up to 3 hours and £6 for up to 6 hours. Note that the pay and display car parks near to the ground still charge after 6pm.
Using the train?
Due to this once again being an evening fixture, this mode of transport can only be used if you are staying overnight. There is an hourly service from London Euston, and you will need to change at Preston – the journey time is a little under 3 hours. The trains go into Blackpool North that is some 2 miles away from the stadium.
Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 17,338 (all seated). I have heard that visiting fans are now accommodated once again on one side of the 'temporary' East Stand on one side of the pitch, where up to 2,500 supporters can be accommodated. Although the stand is covered there are several supporting pillars running along the front of the stand that could hinder your view. The facilities for visiting supporters, food & drink outlets, toilets etc. are housed in the more permanent Armfield Stand, at the south end. Fans access these by walking along the front of the East Stand and through the access tunnel into the back of the Armfield Stand. Entrance to the away section is from Bloomfield Road. The 60-page Matchday Programme costing £3 is available in and around Bloomfield Road.
Time on your hands?
A popular hostelry with away fans is the “Old Bridge House” on Lytham Road. This is just a short walk away - go down Bloomfield Road towards the seafront, turn right into Lytham Road and the pub is on the right. A little further along Lytham Road on the corner with the seafront is the “Manchester Bar” which welcomes away fans. Also on Lytham Road, but this time going in the direction of the Pleasure Beach, is the “Albert Pub” that normally has a good mix of home and away fans.
