We make our first trip back to Meadow Lane since that special night in May 2022 and our SLO Kristine Green has compiled this helpful Away Day Guide for supporters making the journey to Notts County…
What colour kit will the team be wearing?
We will be in red for this game.
What’s the ticket information?
We have sold 2,752 tickets from our allocation and no further tickets will be available on the day. Tickets will also not be available for collection from Meadow Lane. With the away end close to capacity, Notts County have advised supporters to arrive in good time to minimise queues where possible.
What stand are we in?
We are in the Jimmy Sirrel Stand, which is a large stand that runs the length of the pitch. It is an all-seater stand with allocated seating.
What time will turnstiles open?
The turnstiles will open at 1.30pm. Notts County have asked supporters to check tickets for the turnstile number and use the correct one for entry, ensuring that you have your barcode ready to scan.
Please be advised that search detection dogs will be positioned outside the turnstiles. Out of respect to your fellow supporters, please sit in the seat market on your ticket.
How do I get to the ground?
Leave the M1 at junction 26, then onto the A610 towards Nottingham and then Melton Mowbray. Turn left before the river onto Meadow Lane.
Alternatively its straight down the A46 and onto the A52 towards Nottingham. As Radcliffe Road forks off to the left towards Trent Bridge Cricket ground, you need to bear right onto Lady Bay Bridge and follow the road over the river. At the next set of lights turn left onto Meadow Lane and the ground in on the right.
Where is the best place to park?
The Cattle Market Car Park (NG2 3BL) is the nearest car park to the ground but can be difficult to get out of after the game. Alternatively, you have the Victoria Embankment Car Park (NG2 2EH) or Nottingham Train Station multi-storey Car Park.
There are other pay and display Car Parks within the city centre, too.
There is some street parking away from the ground but check signage before parking up. There is also a Park and Ride facility – off the M1 at junction 26 and head to Phoenix Park + Ride (NG8 6AS). The tram will have you into the town centre within 20 minutes. More info can be found here.
What’s disabled parking like?
There are limited accessible parking spaces at the ground that need to be booked through the Club on 0115 955 7241.
There are some on-street disabled bays around the ground that must be paid for through the Ring Go app – there are signs on lampposts with instructions.
What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
Nottingham Train Station is only a ten-minute walk away from the ground on the same side of the River Trent.
Recommended pubs for away fans?
Hooters on London Road is popular pre-match for fans but they seem to be running a booking-only system. The Boot Room on Pavillion Road (opposite side of the river to Meadow Lane) is welcoming Town fans and has a capacity of around 200. Fellows Morton + Clayton on Canal Street (also a capacity of 200) are welcoming away fans too.
Should this be full, other pubs/bars canal side may welcome fans.
What food is available in the area?
Around the ground there are plenty of local and national chain places to eat as it is so close to the City Centre.
Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?
There is a cash machine at the Jet petrol station but it does charge. Otherwise, there are plenty in the City Centre.
What food and drink is available at the stadium?
Inside there are a couple of catering outlets serving burgers, pies and vegetarian options as well as sweets, crisps, hot and cold drinks and alcohol.
Inside the ground is now cashless with only card or contactless payments are accepted.
Is a programme available?
A printed programme is available at a cost of £3. It’s available around the ground and from the home Club Shop, where you can pay by cash or card.
What’s the policy on flags?
Flags are permissible – They should be placed on front-row seats only following stewards’ instructions.
Any further information?
To assist with the safe dispersal of supporters, Cattle Market Road and County Road will be closed from full-time until it is deemed safe to re-open. Exit from the Cattle Market area on to Cattle Market Road and County Road will also be temporarily prevented from approximately 4:45pm until it is deemed safe to re-open. Exit onto Meadow Lane from the Cattle market area will be unaffected.
