TRAVEL – RAIL ENGINEERING WORKS
This weekend engineering work will be taking place on the Eastleigh-Totton-Southampton train lines which will cause disruption to rail services in the area. Rail replacement buses will operate between Southampton Central and Romsey, Eastleigh, Fareham and Bournemouth.
Please check your planned route to the match so that you can allow plenty of time for your journey. The shuttle buses from Southampton Central to the stadium will operate as normal.
AROUND THE GROUND
A variety of food options will be available around the stadium ahead of the match, including Villaggio (wood fired pizza), Spice Shack (Indian style food) and the popular Evies Mac and Cheese (Mac N Cheese and Gourmet Hot Dogs).
FAN BARS AND GASWORKS
You’ll be able to soak up the matchday atmosphere from three fan bars outside St Mary’s. You’ll find The Deanery located on the corner by the bridge, The Gasworks midway down the Kingsland stand and the 8 Bells at the corner of Chapel and Kingsland.
The Gasworks is open to all on a first-come-first-served basis from 11am until kick-off – with no membership required. This week you’ll be able to buy tasty burgers and vegan tikka masala.
The extended outdoor seating area makes the perfect place to enjoy a pre-match pint or cocktail and if you’re watching the game from the Kingsland stand you’ll also be able to access The Gasworks at half time. In addition we’re opening The Gasworks post-match, so you can stay and watch the late kick-off between Liverpool and Manchester City.
Mary will be flying solo this weekend as Sammy is on holiday in sunny Philadelphia. She’ll be roaming the footprint from 12:30pm, meeting fans and posing for photographs.
Saints Brass are bringing the party atmosphere and providing your matchday soundtrack, playing family favourites ahead of the game – don’t miss their pre-match rendition of Oh When The Saints.
Come and join us from midday to soak up the atmosphere and try out the shot stopper and fast feet footie challenges.
Put your skills to the test in our Academy Zone, located outside The Gasworks in the Kingsland stand, including the JWP Scanning Challenge and the free active play zone.

St Mary’s is now a cashless stadium so make sure you bring an alternative payment method for any purchases on matchdays.

You’ll also be able to take your plastic bottles into the Family Stand with a lid on, but the lid will need to be removed upon entering the Kingsland Stand. Please be aware that metal flasks are not permitted into any area.
SAFER GAMBLING WEEK 2022
At Southampton Football Club, we’re committed to promoting safe betting, so we’ve teamed up with Better Change and RecoverMe to support this year’s Safer Gambling Week (17th-23rd October 2022), in order to raise awareness of how to bet more safely.
To demonstrate our commitment to promoting safe betting, we're supporting our partners at Better Change to offer support sessions, both in-person on matchday (vs West Ham United, 16th October 2022) and remotely via telephone or Zoom call after the match.
At the match this weekend you’ll see Better Change and RecoverMe operating Pop-Up Support Stations around the stadium during the build-up. Both organisations will be on hand to offer advice and support on safer gambling.
If you want to speak to Better Change, you can book your free session here.
