WHERE TO PARK:
There is a huge car park next to the ground.
being mainly in the West Stand. Three of the corners have now been enclosed giving extra seating The ground, home to the club since 1899, has undergoing almost total renovation over the last 15 years. The North (Mortensen Kop) and West (Stanley Matthews) Stands were opened in 2002, and the South (Armfield) Stand opened in 2010. All are large, well raked, modern stands ,the offices, executive boxes, hospitality suites etc
The fourth stand is still temporary but is a great improvement on the one in use the last time Vale visited Bloomfield Road. It is covered and seats 5,000, but there are a number of pillars.
WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED:
behind the goal, in a section of the impressive North (Mortesen Kop) Stand. Up to1,500 seats are normally allocated.. This is a great improvement on the open temporary stand we have had to suffer in the past. The away fans are now housed
There are many eating places on Lytham Road, the C Fresh Fish being one of the most popular. This can be found on Lytham Road opposite the Main Stand. The Jolly Haddock is on the corner of central Drive and Bloomfield Road behind the stand used by the Vale supporters.
But be aware that many food outlets shut in the winter so then pub grub may be better! The normal football food is available in the ground.
There are many pubs that circle the ground, including The Swift Hound, The Old Bridge House, The Manchester and Bloomfield Hotel. Just head towards the Tower and you will find somewhere to get a drink. There is also the Working Men’s Club near the away entrance available for fans for a nominal fee.
