SOUTHAMPTON

St Mary’s Stadium (capacity 32,689)

St Mary’s Stadium replaced Southampton’s former iconic stadium, The Dell, in 2001. The naming of the stadium itself is a nod to their past, when the team was called Southampton St Mary’s and the stands are named after the areas of Southampton they face. As well as hosting an England game, it also hosted the world record breaking longest continuous game of football, 102 hours, in June 2015.

The stadium is a complete bowl, with stands of equal height, and has two large screens at either end that can be seen from any seat. There is also a continuous translucent panel to maximise the amount of light in order to stimulate the growth of the playing surface.

Away fans visiting St Mary’s Stadium are located in the Northam Stand, with a typical allocation of 3,200.

With only limited disabled parking available at the stadium itself, and parking restrictions in place in the immediate surroundings, most away fans head towards the city centre to park and take a short walk to St Mary’s. There are a number of City Council Car Parks which are recommended by the club, as well as a number of other parking options, such as Park and Ride.

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

It’s around a 30 minute walk from the nearest railway station, which is Southampton Central, to St Mary’s Stadium. There is a shuttle bus which leaves from Blechynden Terrace bus stop that takes fans to the stadium, but many away fans choose to walk and stop at a few pubs on the way.

When you exit the station from the southern entrance, turn left and walk up Western Esplanade, which then becomes Civic Centre Road. Stay on this road, walking between the Civic Centre and the Marlands Shopping Centre. You’ll come to a crossroads next to a couple of banks, where you should cross over on to New Road, and follow this across a park and past a college. When you reach a set of traffic lights, cross Kings Way on to Northam Road. Follow this for around 400m and you’ll see St Mary’s Stadium on your right.
