ABOUT THE GROUND

Prenton Park has been Rovers’ home since 1912 after the side were forced to vacate the site they had previously obtained from Tranmere Rugby Club.

The ground is shared with Liverpool’s women and reserve teams - with the reserves playing there since 2009 and the women’s team since 2018.

Merseyside’s third-largest ground underwent significant renovations in 1985 in accordance with the Safety of Sports Grounds Acts, reducing capacity from 18,000 to 8,000 while the stadium was adjusted.

Prenton Park now has a capacity of 16,587.

GETTING THERE

By car:

The ground is located in Prenton, Wirral. To get there, follow the M62 towards Liverpool and take exit 20A for the M56.

Continue on the M56 until you reach exit 15 for the M53 and take that exit signposted Ellesmere Port/Birkenhead. 

From here Prenton Park can be accessed via junction 4 and take the fourth exit on the main roundabout.

The stadium is signposted from this point and is approximately a 10-minute drive.

By train:

To reach Prenton Park by train you will be required to make two changes in Manchester Victoria and at Liverpool Lime Street.

Fans travelling from Liverpool or Chester should get off at either Birkenhead Central or Rock Ferry Station (Merseyrail). Both are around a 15–20-minute walk from the stadium.

Alternatively, taxis can be found outside both Chester and Liverpool station. It is significantly cheaper to travel by taxi from Liverpool but it can still be expensive due to charges for access via the Mersey Tunnel.

PARKING 

Official car parking is available, but spaces are limited. They are charged at £7 cash on the gate or £6 if purchased online in advance, subject to availability.

The Mersey Clipper pub, next door to the ground, also provides parking at a cost – payable on the day – but this is a very small car park and does often fill up fast.

Please be mindful that all roads around Prenton Park are resident parking only and there will be road closures in place around the ground from approximately an hour ahead of kick-off, until 30 minutes following the game.

The details of any road closures can be found ahead of the game on Tranmere Rovers’ social media pages.

ENTERTAINMENT AND REFRESHMENTS

City fans are welcomed into the fan park outside of the ground. This is in front of the main stand. Here, you will find a large bar and additional outlets selling a variety of food and drink.

Small groups of away fans are welcome in both the Mersey Clipper and the Prenton Park pubs, which are a short walk from the stadium.

There are also several pubs in Liverpool and Chester for fans travelling by train.

WEATHER

A mild evening is set in Birkenhead, with partly cloudy skies accompanying highs of 18°C.
