Useful documents


Driving

Roads in Salford and the surrounding areas will be busier than normal on match day. Please check your route before you travel and allow more time for your journey.

Please also be aware that matches taking place at Old Trafford or the AJ Bell Stadium may affect congestion on the network.

The main roads close to the Peninsula Stadium which will be affected by traffic are Bury New Road, Moor Lane and Littleton Road.


Park & Ride

A park and ride service operates on match days from the old IT Lab car park on Agecroft Industrial Estate (M27 8SJ). This costs £2 per car, and a shuttle bus operated by Swans Travel will take you to and from the stadium.

There are strict parking restrictions in place around the Peninsula Stadium - only residents with permits are allowed to park within these zones, which are marked at the end of the streets.

These will also be shown on our social media in the build-up to each home match.

Please park responsibly and be considerate of our neighbours when arriving at or leaving the ground.

Coach Parking

Supporters' coaches can drop off on Moor Lane, outside the ground. Away supporters can then use the Moor Lane (E) turnstile for segregated matches, or the Nevile Road (W) turnstile for un-segregated matches.

Coaches can then park on Kersal Road (North off Moor Lane, to the west of the ground) for the duration of the game. Stewards will be on hand to provide details on the day.

Disabled Parking

Please e-mail andy.giblin@salfordcityfc.co.uk prior to match days to reserve a disabled parking space, or for advice on where to park.

Disabled access for all supporters is through the red gate adjacent to Turnstile 'B' on Nevile Road.

Away supporters will be shown to the away end after entering the ground for any segregated matches.


Bus

Currently, the 93, 94, 97, 98 and X43 services run close to the stadium.

If you are travelling by bus to the Peninsula Stadium please check service times with your operator before you travel.

Journeys could take longer than advertised on match days due to the volume of traffic, so please allow additional time for your journey.
