The nearest railway station is Meols Cop on the Manchester to Southport line which is a ten minute walk from the ground.

Come out of the station entrance, turn immediately left onto Norwood Road and continue walking along the road until you reach The Thatched pub. Haig Avenue is directly opposite on the right hand side.

Southport station is in the Town Centre and is a good 20 minute walk from the ground or you can get bus number 44 from Eastbank Street. The buses depart(stop outside Specsavers) at 32, 52 and 12 minutes past the hour and take about ten minutes to get to Haig Avenue with a £2.30 fare.

If coming up on the train from the South, it works out quicker, and usually cheaper to come into Liverpool Lime Street and walk over to Liverpool Central station (a five minute walk) and get the train from Liverpool to Southport (40 minute journey).

To walk you are best coming out of the main station entrance, turning left into the pedestrian area, walking up to Eastbank Street, turn left (you will see KFC in front of you) and then keep walking straight for about 1 ½ miles down Eastbank Street, onto Scarisbrick New Road and then Haig Avenue is on the left. There are a few pubs along Eastbank Street  if you fancy a drink but once at the top of Eastbank Street the next pubs are past the ground, The Richmond on Scarisbrick New Road and  The Thatch & Thistle on Norwood Road opposite Haig Avenue. Both do reasonably priced meals and snacks.

BY CAR: Use Post Code PR8 6JZ for satellite navigation.

From the North: Exit the M6 at Junction (28), sign posted Chorley. Then take the B5248, which runs onto the A59 / A565. On reaching Southport, take the second turning off the roundabout on to Preston New Road. Follow this road until you reach a set of traffic lights. Go straight across onto Cambridge Road. Continue down Lord Street into Southport Town Centre turning left into Eastbank Street and continue until you reach a roundabout. Go straight on into Scarisbrick New Road. Turn left into Haig Avenue at 2nd set of traffic lights.

From the South: Take the M6, and exit at Junction (26) sign posted for the M58. Follow the M58 until junction (3), and take the A570. Stay on the A570 through Ormskirk (one-way), and this will take you, after about 5 miles into the Kew district of Southport. At the roundabout with McDonalds on the left take the third exit, Scarisbrick New Road (A570) you will see the ground on the right, it is situated just past the College (KGV). Turn right at first set of lights into Haig Avenue. From the East: Take the M62 then the M60. Then join the M61 North-bound, exit at Junction (8) signed Chorley. Then follow directions from the North.

From the South avoiding Ormskirk: A bit longer distance but can be quicker in time on a busy day. Leave the M6 at Junction 21A joining the M62 towards Liverpool. Leave the M62 at Junction 6 to join the M57. Go to the end of the M57 and use the A5758 following the signs to Southport. You will go on the Formby By Pass, through Ainsdale and turn right into Carr Lane(the ground is signposted). At the top of Carr Lane follow the road round to the left and keep going straight ahead. Passing Dobbies on your left go straight ahead past Southport Hospital and you will come to a big roundabout at Kew. Take the first exit and you will see the ground in the distance across the playing fields.

PARKING: The club’s small car park is for players and officials only. Therefore, supporters have to park in the surrounding streets. There are usually many spaces under a couple of minutes walk but watch out for parking restrictions around the streets.

Home and away supporters will be able to use the off-road parking facilities at KGV College for a maximum fee of £2.

KGV College’s car park is a short five minute walk along Scarisbrick New Road to the Merseyrail Community Stadium.

Supporters can also use the on-road parking around the stadium, but these are subject to standard Sefton Council parking restrictions.

The club now operates cashless turnstiles. For full official details click here.

We recommend you purchase tickets online in advance (the deadlines in place are 8pm the day before a weekend fixture and midday on the day of a midweek game).

But if you want to purchase a ticket on the day of the game before kick-off, because you don’t have a smartphone or don’t want to buy online, you will have to visit the Club Shop beforehand to get your ticket (cash and card payments accepted). Once purchased you can then enter through the turnstile which open at 2pm.

A reminder that the Turnstile Operators will not take cash or card payments, they will simply scan your ticket or season card to allow entry.

Please note that the drawing on this link shows that tickets for seats with restricted views will state Partially Restricted View.
