The club has a small car park that is for players, guests and officials only. Therefore supporters have to park in the surrounding streets. Please be mindful of our neighbours and do not obstruct driveways, passages, access points or park on yellow lines as Sefton Council reserve the right to issue fines.

For more secure parking, home and away supporters are able to use the off-road parking facilities at KGV College.

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

Club Lounge & Ground Catering

The newly refurbished 1881 Lounge will be open to supporters pre and post-match. The early kick-off fixture between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur will be shown. Match-day tickets are also available to purchase at the bar as you order your alcohol or soft drink!

The 1881 Lounge is a space for supporters to enjoy. With a designated bar and plenty of big TV screens on show.

In addition to this the club have also improved the catering offer inside the ground. Working with Willow Catering there are vans/kiosks at both ends of the ground for people to take advantage of your usual hot and cold match-day food and drink, including alcoholic beverages and fish finger butties!

Toilets are situated within the main stand and Jack Carr Stand, as well as a cabin in the corner of the away stand terrace (Blowick End).

Disabled Access

Disabled supporters can also have an equally great experience at Southport. A designated covered terrace is situated next to the main stand.

In terms of admission the carer is admitted free of charge once a ticket from the Club Shop is purchased at the prices advertised above. There is a designated gate for wheelchair access into the ground.

‘Here to Help’ Volunteers

To ensure everyone has a positive match-day experience when visiting Southport, our tremendous volunteers will be situated around the ground with Southport FC branded attire to help with any queries.


For the 2018/19 season, Southport Football Club have partnered with Exclusec to provide match stewards. These will be easily recognisable through their high visibility jackets and ensure that security of those inside the ground remains our top priority.


For those who are visiting club officials, sponsors and corporate season ticket holders and individual match guests will gain access to the hospitality lounges via the main stand and their designated entrance on the far side (furthest from Club Shop).
