Potential Road Closures

For safety reasons, there may be a road closure on Hamil Road preventing vehicular movement until Hamil Road is clear of pedestrian footfall.

The closure points will be Hamil Road junction with Jenkins Street and Lorne Street, creating a sterile area for egressing pedestrians.

The planned timings would be from the final whistle (or earlier) until the highway is clear of pedestrians. The closure could be in position prior to the final whistle as a precautionary measure, depending on score and high volumes of early leavers, it is anticipated that the closure could be in place for 30 - 45 minutes. 


There are two entrances for match day hospitality. If you’re located in the new lounge the entrance is next to the Bescura Family Hubb.

If you’re located in the Valiant Suite, CJ Bayley Lounge or in a Hospitality Box, the entrance is through the main club reception.

Staffordshire University Fan Zone

The Staffordshire University Fan Zone will be open from 12pm with food stalls, live DJ and entertainment provided by the Port Vale Foundation.

This will reopen at half time for supporters sitting in the Railway Paddock and Railway Stand.
