Oldham’s main stadium car parks tend to be ‘Permit Holders Only’, meaning match-day parking is usually not available on site to visiting supporters. In the past, Oldham have had an agreement in place with the Royal Oldham Hospital which allows their staff car park to be used by supporters. A £3.00 charge is made on entry. This car park is to the rear of the B&Q Superstore on Westhulme Avenue, off Westhulme Way, postcode OL1 2QL.
The closest Metrolink station to the SportsDirect.com Park is Westwood - a 15-20 minute walk away the stadium. The nearest railway station is Mills Hill. This particular station just over a two miles away from the grouns and therefore a 40-45 minute walk away. Both these services depart from Manchester Victoria. Whilst the Metrolink has a number of other pick up points through Manchester City Centre and takes around 21 minutes, the train to Mills Hill takes around 8-10 minutes. If arriving at Manchester Piccadilly railway station, supporters can catch a tram heading towards Altrincham or Eccles from the adjacent Metrolink station and change at St Peters Square. A Rochdale-bound tram will then take you to Westwood.
Rather than getting a train or metro from the Manchester area to Oldham, supporters may find it simpler to take a bus from Manchester Piccadilly Bus Station. Services numbers 24, 181 & 182 head to Oldham and go past the ground. The journey takes usually twenty-five minutes or so. Alternatively, City supporters may consider taking a train to Rochdale and then continuing to SportsDirect.com Park on bus 409.
Food and Drink:
There is a retail park located roughly five minutes from the ground via car called Elk Mill (OL2 5HX).
This particular shopping centre hosts a number of different places supporters can use to grab a bite to eat, including KFC, McDonalds, Frankie & Benny's, Subway, Pizza Hut and Nandos.
The closest pub is the Clayton Green, which is a Brewers Fayre outlet and can be found on Sheepfoot Lane. This is approximately two hundred yards away from the corner of the Main Stand and the Chaddy End (away section).
