Road Closures and Parking
Supporters should note that there will be a temporary road closure put into place from 10 minutes before the end of the match to support the dispersal of supporters of both clubs in leaving the ground safely on foot.
The closure will be effective from the junction of Lorne Street and Hamil Road above the ground, and Jenkins Street and Hamil Road below the ground. Supporters parking on Synectics and other official car parks should expect delays in exiting car parks from the ground whilst pedestrians disperse.
Working with colleagues from Staffordshire Police and with the assistance of supporters from both clubs, we aim to release car parks in a safe and timely manner.
We recommend official parking is booked in advance online via the Port Vale Parking website (portvaleparking.co.uk), with a number of locations available on site and nearby for coaches, mini-buses and private vehicles.
Seasonal Car Park C Parking: Supporters who have a seasonal pass for Car Park C should park on the Synectics Car Park for this fixture.
Supporters should note tickets purchased are reserved seating. We politely request all supporters sit in their allocated seat - this information is printed on your ticket and in your order confirmation if purchased online.
Our accessibility stand is situated in the corner of the Lorne Street Stand and the Bycars Stand and is entered via Car Park D.
