Fourth Round – here we come! Our first match at this stage of the FA Cup in 23 years sees us travel south to take on Luton Town. Our Away Day Travel Guide, courtesy of Kristine Green, has all the important information for supporters travelling down.
What colour kit are we wearing?
We’re in our pink third kit for this game.
What’s the ticket information?
It’s a sell out for away fans. All 1500 tickets were snapped up before general sale and no further tickets will be made available. There will be tables outside the away turnstiles for our supporters to collect tickets at the ground.
What stand are Town fans in?
Town fans are in the Oak Road Stand. This is a covered, seated stand behind the goal.
Seating is unreserved – please be mindful that there will be supporters that cannot stand for long periods of time.
How do I get to the ground?
Postcode is LU4 8AW
Leave the M1 at junction 11 and take the A505. After a mile, take the 2nd exit of the roundabout and continue across two sets of traffic lights.
Follow signs to the Town Centre.
Where is the best place to park?
Plenty of parking in the town centre, it is a twenty-five-minute walk away.
PowerCourt on St Mary’s Road or Bute Street Shoppers Car Park are two options.
There is a bus interchange opposite Luton main train station. From here take the Luton-Dunstable busway. The first stop on this route is Clifton Road, which is only 100 yards from Oak Road.
Some streets around the ground are closed off on matchdays. There is some street parking available around the ground but it is limited and you need to watch out for resident only parking and other restrictions.
Information for disabled fans travelling?
Parking around the ground is very limited and any disabled blue badge parking must be pre-booked by emailing Nasreen.email@example.com These are first come, first served spaces.
There are 20 steps to navigate to get into the away end – if you have mobility issues please contact firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to arrange alternative, accessible entry into the stand.
When do turnstiles open?
Turnstiles open at 1.30pm.
What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
Nearest station is Luton Station, around a twenty-minute walk from the ground.
Recommended pubs for away fans?
There is not a lot available around the ground itself. In the Town Centre you have the Red Lion (LU1 3AA) or Off the Wall (LU1 3EP). Both are around a twenty-five-minute walk away.
You also have the option of the White House Wetherspoons – it’s a big pub about 15 minutes away and the postcode is LU1 1SA.
Alternatively, there is The Gary Cooper in Dunstable (LU65 4GP) if you want to stop off before heading to the ground. This has plenty of parking for cars and coaches.
Food available in the area?
The Bury Park area of Luton (Bury Park Road and Dunstable Road) has plenty of local eateries and national chains.
Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?
There is a Barclays at the bottom of Oak Road.
What food and drink is available in the stadium?
The ground has the usual pies and burgers, as well as other hot and cold drinks.
A small bar is in the away end – it has a capacity of around 60 and will be one in and one out once it reaches capacity.
The stadium is cashless.
What is the process for supporters looking to bring flags into the stadium?
Stewards will take a look at flags before they are taken into the ground. Any flag larger than 4’ x 3’ will need a fire certificate.
Flags are usually located at the back of the stand – stewards will advise once in the stand.
Is a programme available?
A printed programme will be available on the day.
We’re looking forward to seeing our supporters cheering on the lads at Kenilworth Road tomorrow – be loud, be proud, be Town!
