CAR PARKING

Car parking at Moss Rose is available in the form of street and roadside parking around the immediate vicinity of the ground. 

This is generally free of charge but is, obviously, available on a first come, first served basis.

ENTERTAINMENT AND REFRESHMENTS

To drink:

The closest pub is The Golden Lion, located just a 10-minute walk away from the visiting tunstiles, on Moss Lane. 

This establishment serves a variety of real ale and offers pie and chips, plus a pint, for just £5 on matchdays. 

To eat:

At the Moss Rose stadium itself, the Keith Alexander Bar welcomes both home and away supporters and is located next to the Sammy MacIlroy Suite, serving hot food and drink. 

Inside the ground, the usual selection of pastries, burgers and hot dogs are sold at kiosks. 

GETTING THERE

By car: 

Follow the A6 through Stockport until the road forks. Take the right-hand fork signposted for Macclesfield (A523).

Follow this road past the town centre until you reach the end of the dual carriageway. The ground is roughly 1.25 miles further on your right.

Leave the M60 at Stockport and follow as above or leave on junction 3 at Cheadle and follow the A34, following the signs for Macclesfield and 'Other Routes'. 

By train: 

The nearest railway station is Macclesfield.

Leave the station and turn left up Sunderland Street until you reach a major crossroads at the war memorial.

Take the left, here, and follow for around a mile. Turning right at this junction will take you into the town centre, where you are around a mile from the ground. 

By bus: 

The bus route number 9, which can be caught from the town centre, drops right outside the venue. 

WEATHER

Supporters can expect more wet conditions for the Bantams' trip to Cheshire. 

A yellow weather warning has been issued, with conditions potentially leading to floods. 

Temperatures will remain at around 7°C with chances of rain up to 98 per-cent.
