Getting To The Kassam Stadium

Getting Here

Oxford United Football Club
Kassam Stadium
Grenoble Road
Oxford
OX4 4XP

BY CAR
The stadium is signposted on all major approach roads to Oxford with the brown “attraction” signs and a football icon. For Satnavs, use postcode OX4 4XP. Away supporters should head for car park B1, opposite the VUE cinema (see below).

Parking
The stadium has unreserved spaces for around 2,000 cars at each game. Parking is free of charge and on a first come, first served basis. Away supporters should head for west car park B1 or B2. If these are full you will be directed to the overflow carpark which is past the VUE cinema and club shop.

Note that after most matches there is a security gate in place behind the North Stand, which prevents direct access from the away end to the East car parks.

The Firoka Group of Companies have introduced parking restrictions at the Kassam Stadium and Leisure Park. Parking Eye, a system similar to the one in operation at the Express by Holiday Inn and the Hampton by Hilton hotel, is now in use. 

This measure is being taken to reduce abuse, over-stays and unwanted parking from people not using on site facilities.

These new parking restrictions will not apply from four hours before until four hours after kick-off at all Oxford United home games.

Outside of home matchday excluded hours as stated above, supporters visiting the Ticket Office or Club Shop, or attending meetings with club officials, will have a 20-minute grace period. Supporters can extend the 20-minute grace period to a maximum of three hours by registering their vehicle.

Oxford United supporters travelling on the London Road Coaches to away matches will no longer be able to leave vehicles in the Kassam Stadium car parks. However, parking bays are available along the length of Grenoble Road – supporters are advised to leave additional time to park and walk back to the relevant bus stop.

Vehicles cannot be left on site overnight.

Full details will be displayed on signage at the Stadium and Leisure Park.

Disabled Supporters
There are specific marked bays for disabled supporters near to each stand. Click HERE for full information for supporters with disabilities or call 01865 337533.

Parking Near the Ground
There is some road parking near the ground with spaces between the stadium and the Watlington Road roundabout. All supporters attending games are asked to respect the Residents Only schemes that operate in the nearby streets and not to park on the double yellow lines on approach roads. The lines do include the grass verges along the edge of the road as well and the club will not accept responsibility for any parking tickets issued to motorists who park there.

BY TRAIN

The nearest station is Oxford (OXF). If you arrive at Oxford Parkway (OXP) we suggest you take a connecting train to Oxford. Oxford Station is approximately five miles from the stadium.

Taxis will take around 15 minutes to get to the ground from the rank outside the station and will usually cost around £15-£20.

BY BUS

From Oxford City Centre

The 3A runs every half hour from bus stop E1 (near the Westgate shopping centre). It stops at Grenoble Road on the south side of the stadium.

For evening matches note that the bus leaves the stadium at 9:47 pm and 10:47pm

Both the City 5 and Stagecoach1 bus services run every 5 minutes to Sandy Lane West. The journey takes around 40 minutes and then it is a 15 minute walk to the stadium.
