There are circa 2,000 free parking spaces at the stadium. Car Park A, in front of the South Stand will be held for a short period after 90 minutes for safety reasons.
 
Please remember there is a resident only parking scheme (controlled parking zones) around the vicinity of the stadium which is in force on match days. These are in parts of Minchery Farm and Blackbird Leys West along with Frys Hill and Brake Hill in Greater Leys.

Away fans
 Please park in the West car park - the one closest to the cinema and bowling complex at the fence end of the ground.

North Stand Movement
The Rapid Expansion System (RES Gate) will be in operation behind the North Stand which means fans cannot move from one end of the ground to the other behind that stand.
 
Any supporter with mobility impairment who requires assistance during the fixture is advised to locate an OUFC Supervisor (indicated by either a yellow / orange or orange coat)
 
SMOKING
Although there is no readmission if you leave the ground during the game Smoking Pens are provided in the North Away, East Stand and executive areas for half time.
