The following information is for fans who are travelling to Yeovil Town on Saturday (5.20pm).

Getting There
Huish Park is situated on the outskirts of town, sandwiched between a commercial/industrial estate and ever-growing residential areas. The ground is signposted from most major roads near Yeovil. There are normally delays for traffic leaving the stadium post-match.

By Road
From the North & South West
Use the M5 to junction 25 (Taunton). Take the A358 sign posted Ilminster for a few miles to the roundabout then turning left to travel East on the A303. Continue along the A303 east, (sign-posted Andover/London) until the Cartgate roundabout. Turn right onto the A3088 (sign posted Yeovil). Travel a few miles and at the next roundabout, take the first exit along Bunford Lane (airfield opposite) go straight over another roundabout past the Crematorium (on left) and then follow the signs to the ground from the next roundabout nearby(Asda).

From the East
Follow the M3 and then the A303 until the Cartgate roundabout on the West side of Yeovil. Turn left onto the A3088 (sign posted Yeovil). At the next roundabout take the first exit along Bunford Lane (airfield opposite) go straight over another roundabout past crematorium (on left) and follow the signs from the next roundabout nearby (Asda).

From the South
Follow the A30 or A37 into Yeovil and then continue on the A30 to the police station roundabout. Take first exit at the roundabout on to Lysander Road. Continue straight along this road through the sets of traffic lights until you reach the second roundabout. Do not turn left at this roundabout for Taunton, keep straight on with the airfield on your right. Continue straight across another roundabout past the Crematorium (on left) and follow the signs from the next roundabout (Asda).

Parking
Huish Park has generally ample (800 spaces) car-parking facilities for all but sell-out games. There is a £3 car charge, £6 charge for mini buses and £18 for supporters’ coaches. Payable to stewards on the gate.

Coach Operators Instructions
Supporter’s coaches are to remain on site and will initially be parked adjacent to the main car park BUT drivers will then be required to move them immediately after half time to the rear of the away end terrace in order to affect a quick and efficient getaway post-match. Generally there will be no police escort for supporters’ coaches’ at any stage.

Drivers and operators are requested to comply with the Traffic Commissioners’ guidelines, especially points ii) and iv) below
i) Coaches must not arrive earlier than two hours before the scheduled kick-off time and no later than one hour before kick off time.
ii) Coach operators must not stop within ten miles of their final destination.
iii) Departure must be within one hour of the final whistle.
iv) Coaches must not stop at any premises where intoxicating liquor is available.
v) Coaches must not carry alcohol.

Coach operators are reminded of the Sporting Events (control of Alcohol) Act 1985, as amended by the Public Order Act 1986, which prohibits alcohol on a vehicle, which:
I) Is either a public service vehicle or a vehicle which is adapted to carry more than eight passengers and
ii) 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.

By Rail
Yeovil has two train stations: Yeovil Junction, which is on the London Waterloo– Exeter line and Yeovil Pen Mill, which connects to London and Bristol. Regular bus services run from both stations and taxis can be picked up from either station.

Away Fans

SCREWFIX STAND SEATING The allocation of seats for visiting supporters is located in the Screwfix Stand and though covered, it is worth noting that in bad weather the first four rows are likely to be exposed to the elements, so you’ll need to dress appropriately if you are sat in these seats. Row AA is pitchside and P is at the back of the stand.

RADIO CABS TERRACE The Standing Terrace offers unreserved, uncovered standing and as such we would advise it is not suitable for those with young children or for those unable to stand for long periods of time. As it is an uncovered terrace, you are exposed to the weather and as such we advise supporters to wear appropriate clothing if bad weather is forcast.

The Radio Cabs stand will only be opened at fixtures where we believe the travelling support will exceed the seated allocation. When the away terrace is not available, we offer supporters of the visiting team Home Terrace pricing to in the Away seated areas. 

DISABLED SUPPORTERS There are five covered wheelchair bays available for visiting supporters, located in the Screwfix stand with assistant tickets directly behind the bays. Suitable seating for ambulant disabled supporters is also available in the Screwfix stand. A dedicated Soccer Sight Commentary is also available - please contact a steward on the day for a head set.
