Ahead of our trip to Exeter City this weekend, our Supporter Liaison Officer has compiled useful information for your visit...
Bury: Are there any known traffic issues en route to the Stadium? I.e any road closures or roadworks?
Exeter: No problems anticipated.
Bury: Is car parking available for Bury fans? If so, please provide details (where, how much, etc.). If no, information on the nearest location would be appreciated.
Exeter: Please note that owing to very limited parking at St James Park, there is no on-site parking for supporters at St James Park on matchdays. There is also very limited residential parking available locally.
There are a few car parks near the ground though. There is the King William Street car park (NCP) or the car parks just off Western Way on Parr Street, Belmont, Belgrave Road, and Bampfylde Street car park and the Triangle car park (actually accessed from Clifton Road). These are all about five to 10 minutes' walk minutes from the club.
Bury: What is the process for blue badge holders?
Exeter: Blue badge holders can park in restricted areas (but not residential parking) where there will be no hazard to other road users
Bury: Please give details of pre-match venue for Bury fans (on-site bar, away fan friendly pubs, etc.)
Exeter: The Centre Spot Bar is open from 11 am and welcomes both home and away fans, and is located in the ground, next to the VIP entrance and old Reception. The bar offers a large range of drinks, pool table, and dart boards, all in a friendly atmosphere. The Centre Spot is also home to The Famous Exeter City Real Ale and Cider Emporium (opens at 1 pm), offering a great selection of real ales and ciders.
The open-air Patio “Export” bar is open from noon.
Red Square houses the Exeter City club shop, an outside bar, and the Junior Grecians Family Zone. There is also a dedicated catering van providing hot and cold delicious local produce.
