Before the trip to Exeter here is some information for supporters on the game
St James Park was opened in 1904 and has hosted Exeter City games ever since. The stadium is served by the St James Park railway station, which is right next to the ground (the line runs behind the grandstand). It has been adopted by the club who contribute to its upkeep, under the community rail scheme, and its railings have been painted in the red and white of Exeter's strip.
The capacity of St James Park following the completion of a £3.4 million redevelopment project is 8,219. The record attendance is 20,984, who watched Exeter lose 4–2 to Sunderland in an FA Cup Sixth Round Replay in 1931.
The stadium has a capacity of 8,219 and Vale supporters will be housed in either the Tracks Suzuki St James Road Stand (covered standing terrace) or blocks L and M of the IP Office Main Stand (all seated). There is disabled seating in both stands.

Please note the junctions surrounding M6 J10 will be busier than usual, as some motorists will divert from the M6.
Match Day Car Parking
Please note that owing to very limited parking at St James Park, there is no on-site parking for supporters at St James Park on matchdays. There is also very limited residential parking available locally.
There are a few car parks near the ground though. There is the King William Street car park (NCP) or the car parks just off Western Way on Parr Street, Belmont, Belgrave Road and Bampfylde Street car park and the Triangle car park (actually accessed from Clifton Road). These are all about five to 10 minutes' walk minutes from the club.
Travelling by rail
The stadium is served by St James Park rail station, a few minutes’ walk from the ground. The station lies on the Avocet Line (First Great Western trains), which runs from Exeter St David’s to Exmouth, also calling at Exeter Central. The Exeter St David’s and Exeter Central stations connect the city to the other major cities across the UK.
