Travel advice from Football Supporters Federation - www.fsf.org.uk .

By Train

Swansea is well-served by both Arriva Trains Wales and First Great Western with hourly services running from London Paddington and Manchester Piccadilly.

The station is also well served from within Wales itself with services to Cardiff, Carmarthen and Pembroke Dock amongst others.

By Bus

If travelling to Swansea via Coach, when you get to the Quadrant (Swansea Central Bus Station) enter the Main Bus Station and take bus numbers 4, 4a, 120, or 122, with either the 4 or 4a the preferable options.

For more information on local travel: www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/wales/swwales.

By Car

If travelling to the game please note, many fans, Team Coaches and Match Officials have had problems with Sat Nav (Satellite Navigation.) Please check your Sat Nav system when inputing route criteria as it will direct you to the Vetch Field (the old stadium, located near the city centre).

Please consult with route planners available via the RAC and AA for a more detailed routing. Take Junction 45 off of the M4; follow the signs marked city centre. This should take you along the A4067 until you get to dual carriageway with the stadium on your left and then take the first left. There is a car park nearby just continue down to the mini roundabout and then turn right and left into the Landore park and ride. Alternatively get of the M4 at Junction 42 and proceed onto the A483 and follow the signs to Swansea and there is a Park and Ride on Fabian Way just opposite McDonalds and The Encore Ramadan. The Park and Ride has 500 spaces and 23 disabled spaces. Take the bus into the city centre and connect from the quadrant to the stadium routes see coach arrivals section for more details.

Parking

Please note Car Parking is a problem near the stadium. The Local Authority has stopped parking in residential areas near the stadium and there are officials in force who will fine offenders. Supporters cannot park in the car park located behind the North Stand nor the spaces behind the home West and East Stands.

Note: Disabled Away supporters may book places at a cost for parking for a fee. Please ring your club for more information regarding this issue.

There is limited parking at the Park-and-Ride at Landore opposite at a fee. It has 550 spaces and 25 disabled spaces. The car park is very secure and offers toilets and baby change facilities.

There are a number of car parks around the stadium run by private landowners and companies.

Away supporters are advised to park in the signposted Park and Ride from Junction 45. A shuttle will be there to take you to and from the stadium.

Eating & Drinking from Football Supporters Federation - www.fsf.org.uk

There are alternatives to eating in the stadium itself with two very good pubs around with the Morfa Parc part of the Brewster’s chain just opposite the South Stand. There are a lot of home supporters who go there for a pre match and post match pint. However there is reasonably priced food there. Opposite the stadium over the dual carriageway there is Pizzeria Vestivio.

However if you are looking for an economical meal there is Rossi’s Fish and chip shop over the dual carriageway. Located in Morfa Retail Park there is a KFC and Pizza Hut which get very busy around match days. Also there is Morrison’s super market which also has a café inside. There are number of pubs near the Liberty Stadium including the Station Inn in near by Hamilton Street opposite the stadium and The Globe inn located in Mysydd Road.

There are many pubs in the city centre the majority of which are located on Wine Street which leads off Castle gardens. The main ones to head for are the Square mid way down Wine Street, Bank Statement, SA1, Walkabout, Yates, Revolution and Picture and Piano. Also located there is another branch of Frankie and Bennys, China China and TGI Fridays.
