Middlesbrough Away
Riverside Stadium


Riverside Stadium (capacity 35,100)

The Riverside Stadium has been home to Middlesbrough since 1995 and was one of the first modern English stadiums to be built after the Taylor Report. There is still a reminder of the club’s past at the front of the stadium, where they have erected the old Ayresome Park gates.

The stadium is completely enclosed, and all stands are two tiered. However, the West Stand is slightly larger than the other three stands in appearance. The roof is raised up above the seating area to allow more light to the pitch, through Perspex panels. There is also a large video screen in the South East corner.

Away fans visiting the Riverside Stadium are now located on one side of the East Stand, nearest the South Stand, with a typical allocation of 3,500.

Other than the limited amount of car parking available at the stadium, away fans are advised to consider one of the matchday carparks on nearby waste land, although sometimes it can take a while to get away after the game. The other option is to use one of the town centre car parks, which is around a 15 minute walk from the Riverside Stadium.

We’ve compiled a list of car parks, below, near to the Riverside Stadium for hassle free parking while you’re at the match.

The Riverside Stadium is around a mile away from Middlesbrough railway station which is located on Albert Road, so it will take around 15-20 minutes to walk. Although there is a direct train service from the North West, fans travelling from other parts of the country, will most likely find themselves changing at Darlington, for Middlesbrough.

When you exit the railway station, turn left onto Zetland Road. Take another left on to Albert Road and you’ll go under the railway bridge. Turn immediately right on to Bridge Street East, going past the Bridge pub and then take the next right on to Wynward Way. You’ll see the stadium on this road.
