With one of the biggest crowds of the season expected on Saturday against Sunderland it’s worth pointing out a few things to help supporters get the most out of their day.
As usual there will be Supporter Liaison Officers and Stewards all around the ground to help you with any questions, but here are a few points to consider when planning your day
The game is ALL TICKET and there will be no tickets available on the day. You need to order online at oufctickets.co.uk and from 01865 337533 and with some areas close to selling out we urge fans to do so as soon as possible.
The usual car parks at the ground will be open as usual, with the East Stand Car Park open from 12.30 and we will tweet (@OUFCOfficial) with traffic and parking updates.
Sunderland are bringing up to 25 coaches which means that the disabled parking spaces near the away end will move to just behind the fence rather than on the corner (the blue area on the map below). If you are not using the North Away turnstiles then avoid the yellow area on this map where there will be a number of coaches moving and parking.
There will be no vehicle movement in the south car parks (VIP and A) from 85 minutes until 15 minutes after the final whistle
We have received a number of complaints from supporters who cycle to a home fixture and arrive to find the pedal cycle bays occupied by motorcycles. Please park responsibly. Supporters who cycle to the fixture are requested to only use the cycle bays indicated by the Red Line between the East and South stands
No movement behind the North Stand
The Rapid Expansion System (RES Gate) will be in operation behind the North Stand to support the crowd management operation and the coach parking. It will operate from 1pm-3pm, at half time, and until the departure of the away coaches.
Home fans entering the North Stand need to do so from the east end of the ground and If you need to move from one end of the ground to the other then please do so at the front of the stadium
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)
OUFC request that all fans follow the guidance above to support a safe fixture

The Family Room is open for this game and features activities and games for young fans plus a chance to meet players before kick-off. It is free to join the fun and you can find it in the corner of the South and East Stands from 1.30pm onwards.
