DONCASTER ROVERS V COVENTRY CITY
TUESDAY MARCH 8TH AT 7.45PM
AT THE KEEPMOAT STADIUM,STADIUM WAY, LAKESIDE,DONCASTER, DN4 5JW
Club Coach leaves the Ricoh Arena at 4pm and costs £16.50.
From the A1(M) join M18 Eastbound at Junction 35 (signposted Hull) or from the M1 and join the M18 Eastbound at Junction 32.
Once on the M18, leave at Junction 3 and take the A6182 towards Doncaster (the stadium is well signposted from Junction 3 and is about one and a half miles away). You will pass a retail park on your left and then at the next island (which has the Lakeside Pub visible behind it) turn left onto White Rose Way. The Lakeside Shopping Centre is now on your right (the stadium is located directly behind the shopping centre). At the next island turn right onto the industrial estate and after passing the Tesco distribution centre on your right, turn right at the bottom of the road and the stadium is further down on your left.
There are just 1,000 car parking spaces at the stadium, which will mean that for the bigger games, parking will be at a premium. There are 60 parking spaces reserved for disabled fans, which must be booked prior to matchday.
The stadium management are also giving preference for parking to those cars carrying more than one passenger, but apparently this won't be enforced. The cost of parking at the stadium is £5. A number of firms on the nearby industrial park, offer matchday parking at around £3-£4 per vehicle.
If you happen to arrive a couple of hours before kick off then there is also some free street parking to be had in this area.
There is no coach parking available at the stadium. Visiting supporters' coaches drop fans off at the stadium and park off site.
Doncaster Station is around two miles away so you are probably best taking a taxi to the ground. If you do have time on your hands and you fancy the long walk (around 25-30 minutes) then the route from the railway station is as follows:
On coming out of the railway station, walk to the dual carriageway across the car parking area and turn to face to your right (i.e. away from the road tunnel under the Frenchgate shopping centre). You are now looking down a more or less straight line to the stadium. Provided you then use the appropriate places to cross roads as necessary you just follow the line of the dual carriageway to the roundabout adjacent to Vardy's Renault dealership. Then turn left into Middle Bank and follow the road round to the stadium.
