The Bantams will be looking to build on last weekend's victory on the road, as they visit Rodney Parade to face Newport County this afternoon.

We have compiled a handy Away Day Guide - packed full of information ahead of the clash.


Rodney Parade

Rodney Road




Rodney Parade has been home to Newport County since they were founded back in 1912. 

Built in 1877, the ground is the second-oldest sports venue in the EFL, with a capacity of 8,700 and 7,850 for football games. 

The venue is also home to Dragons rugby union side and Newport RFC - and hosted the Wales Women v England Women international football friendly in 2018.  


Supporters will be able to PAY ON THE DAY this afternoon, with tickets available from the away ticket office at Rodney Parade. 

Over 400 Bantams are already set to make the trip to Rodney Parade.

Please be aware of various parking charges you may incur when parking on streets. Parking in Newport city centre - for various charges - is also available.


To drink:

While there is no designated away pub at Newport, the closest to the away end is Excelsior Institute - on Corporation Road. 

Just a five-minute walk from the stadium, most away supporters generally tend to head here prior to the game. 

To eat:

Friars Walk is over the bridge from Rodney Parade - in Newport city centre. This is home to many eateries including Zizzi's and Nandos amongst others. 

Burgers and pies are also available to purchase from kiosks in the Bisley Stand at Rodney Parade.


By car:

From the east, take Junction 25a from the M4 then take the first exit off the roundabout onto Heidenheim Way. Take the first exit off the flyover then the second exit off the roundabout.

At the next roundabout, take the first exit across the River Usk. At the next set of traffic lights, bear right onto Chepstow Road.

Take the first right onto Cedar Road, then the first right onto Corporation Road. Take the first left onto Grafton Road and Rodney Parade will be on your left.

By train:

The nearest train station to Rodney Parade is Newport (Gwent). This is generally less than a 10-minute walk from the ground. 

Leave the train station via the entrance/exit at Platform 1. Cross the road (so that you are outside Admiral Insurance) and turn left.

Follow the pavement. It will eventually curve left (past Delilah’s Café and Bar). This will bring you out near the Market Arcade and Popadom’s Indian Restaurant. Turn left and follow the road to the end.

At the end of the road you will see a staircase on your right. Go down the stairs and through the underpass which will bring you out at Clarence Street Bridge.

Go over the bridge and take your first right onto Rodney Road.
