Post Code for Sat Navs: B92 9EJ
Leave the M42 at Junction 6 and take the A45 towards Birmingham. After around two miles, you will come to a major set of traffic lights that has a Holiday Inn over to your right and the entrance to Birmingham Freight Cargo Terminal. Turn left at these lights (sign posted Land Rover/Damsonwood) into Damson Parkway. Go up to the roundabout, on which there is an entrance to the Land Rover car plant. Go completely around the roundabout to come back on yourself. The entrance to the ground is a short distance down on the left.
Coach/Car Parking: The SportNation.bet Stadium has limited car parking available to supporters on a matchday, priced at £5.
Alternatively, supporters can make use of the NCP Car Park at Birmingham Airport Cargo Term (B26 3QT). This is a short 15-20 minute walk away from the ground, but costs just £3.
The X12 bus runs to the ground every 15/20 minutes from Solihull Town Centre, the NCP and Birmingham International. On night matches, this increases to every 30 minutes.
We politely remind supporters that it is not permitted to park in surrounding areas and local estates. Parking on Damson Parkway is strictly prohibited and car parking tickets are likely to be issued.
Traffic Commissioners guidelines are followed as a matter of course.
The Traffic Commissioners’ Guidelines, together with the Sporting Events (Control of Alcohol) Act 1985, as amended by the Public Order Act 1986, prohibits alcohol on a vehicle which :-
is either a public service vehicle or a vehicle adapted to carry more than 8 passengers (ie mini – bus) and;
is being used for the principal purpose of carrying passengers for the whole or part of a journey to or from a designated sporting event.
Coach Operators are reminded to keep to the following new guidelines when carrying supporters to and from football matches :-
1. Coaches are not to stop within 10 miles of the venue either on route to or from the event unless prior agreement is obtained from the local Police Liaison Officer.
2. Unless directed otherwise by a Police Officer, coaches may not stop at premises where intoxicating liquor is sold unless it is sold as ancillary to a substantial meal.
3. Coaches are to arrive at the venue no earlier than two hours before and not later than one hour before kick-off.
4. Coaches are not to set down or uplift passengers at any unauthorised locations without prior permission of the police.
5. Coaches must leave the venue within one hour of the finish of the event.
The Commissioner has powers to attach conditions to Operators’ Licences in relation to journeys to and from football matches, but prefers to rely on co-operation between Operators and Police.
The Police have been asked to notify the Commissioner of any incidents where the guidelines have not been followed so that he may consider whether any conditions should be imposed.
Away fans information:

Solihull Railway Station is served by trains from Birmingham Moor Street and London Marylebone. The ground is situated two and half miles away from the station in a roughly north-easterly direction.
