DONCASTER v CITY: AWAY DAY GUIDE

22 September 2018

Over 1,000 City supporters will be travelling 92 miles* to The Keepmoat Stadium as the Bantams continue the Sky Bet League One season against Doncaster Rovers F.C.

The match kicks off at 3:00pm today, and here is everything our travelling Bantams supporters need to know...

THE GROUND

The Keepmoat Stadium is the home of Doncaster Rovers F.C. which has the capacity of 15,231. For the official opening, The Keepmoat Stadium hosted Manchester United on the 3rd August 2007 with a crowd of 13,080. United won the game 2-0.

City supporters will be seated in the North Stand, sponsored by Corsan. The view of the playing action, legroom, and facilities are all of an excellent standard.

The concourses have recently been refurbished and a number of food and drink options are available.

TRAVELLING TO THE GROUND

By Road…

From the A1(M) join the M18 Eastbound at Junction 35 (signposted Hull) or from the M1, 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.

By Train

Doncaster Station is just under two miles away and buses are provided as detailed right to the ground. If you do have time on your hands and you fancy the walk (around 25-30 minutes) then as you come out of the station turn right and then keep straight on this road (the A6182 Trafford Way) and you will eventually reach the stadium complex on your left.

By Bus…

For Saturday afternoon games: Buses will leave Doncaster Frenchgate Interchange direct to the ground as follows: 

  • Service 73 at 10 and 40 minutes past each hour (18:00 and 19:00 for evening games)
  • Service 58 at 25 and 55 minutes past each hour (18:15 and 18:45 for evening games)

 

PARKING

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. Out of the 1,000 there are 60 parking spaces reserved for disabled fans, which must be booked prior to matchday. The cost of parking at the stadium is £5. Away coaches are parked directly behind the Corsan Northern Stand.

Alternatively, a number of companies on the nearby industrial park, offer matchday parking at around £3-£4 per vehicle. Please be aware non of these unofficial car parks are endorsed by Doncaster Rovers and users park at their own risk.
