getting to the stadium
Parking at St Mary’s Stadium is sold out to blue badge holders on a seasonal basis. If you're a blue badge holder and would like to be added to our waiting list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the waiting list is very busy and therefore you may have to wait a few seasons before being offered a space.
Southampton Football Club advise visiting fans not to travel by private car into the surrounding areas of Southampton. Due to parking restrictions operating on a matchday, we recommend making use of public transport wherever possible. However, if you do choose to drive to St Mary’s Stadium, you can make use of a local City Council car park:
If you are an away supporter and require blue badge parking, you will need to contact your own club, who will be allocated 6 spaces for away supporters.
A “drop off and pick-up area” is available for Blue Badge Holders. This is situated outside the Main Reception area, adjacent to the Ted Bates statue. Access is via Chapel Road and Granville Street to the south of the Stadium.
This facility is available for vehicles displaying a blue disabled badge and is strictly for set down purposes up to two hours prior to the match and again for pick up purposes for up to one hour after the final whistle.
Please be aware that any vehicles parking in this area are likely to be towed away. If you require assistance getting from the drop off area to your entrance or seat whilst your enabler parks, please do let us know by contacting our Accessibility Team on 02380 711 980 or by email at email@example.com.
