STADIUM ADDRESS

Edgeley Park

Hardcastle Road

Stockport

SK3 9DD

ABOUT THE GROUND

Despite being absent from the EFL for 11 years, Edgeley Park is still able to hold just over 10,000 supporters.

Stockport's home since 1902, the Hatters recently secured a deal to stay at Edgeley Park for 250 years, and has seen much redevelopment through the years.

The ground is comprised of four stands - the two-tiered Cheadle End, The Danny Bergara North Stand, The Together Family Stand, and The Vitality Railway Stand.

CAR PARKING

There is a range of street parking options that charge a low fee, although beware as spaces can be taken quickly on matchday.

Cars are charged 80p to park on the Caroline Street, which is just five minutes from the stadium and can hold 70 cars. At the same price, cars can also be kept on Bulkeley Street, but there are only 20 spaces.

For assurance of a space, Stopford House Car Park holds 200 cars, but note that is a 15-minute walk to Edgeley Park and costs £3.

ENTERTAINMENT AND REFRESHMENTS

To drink:

The away concourse situated in the Together Family Stand sells hot and cold food, as well as an array of soft, hot and alcoholic drinks.

There are a number of away friendly away pubs near Edgeley Park, all of which cater to different needs.

There is a small labour club right by the entrance to the Railway End, though there is a small entrance fee.

Around a five minutes' walk from the ground is the Armoury pub, which serves beers from a local brewery.

To eat:

Alongside traditional matchday food sold in the stadium, the Edgeley Shopping Centre has many options to purchase food.

The Friary, situated inside the shopping centre, which is 1.2 miles from the ground, is a highly-rated fish and chip shop by local residents and fellow away fans.

There is also a McDonald's and Korean BBQ restaurant a 15-minute walk from the ground.

GETTING THERE

By Car:

Edgeley Park is easy to reach by car. Leave the motorway at Junction 20A, then take the M56 towards Manchester Airport.

From there, take the M60 towards Stockport, and take exit 1 onto A560 to Hardcastle Road.

By Train:

Stockport Railway Station is located half a mile away from the ground, and a ten-minute walk.

Exit via the smaller exit on the western side, and turn left up Station Road towards the roundabout. Go straight over the roundabout, then turn left and you will see the blue stadium in front.

WEATHER

There is low chance of rain in Stockport on Tuesday, with light clouds and winds expected in the evening.

City fans should prepare for a clear evening with highs of 6°C, but the temperature will drop into the night.
