Away Day Guide – Middlesbrough
This is a hell of a distance for a midweek fixture and our applause goes to all those that can make the trip. Here’s our away day guide.
Tickets are currently on sale via the Fulham website priced at £30 for adults, £22 for senior citizens and £17 for under 18s.
GETTING TO THE RIVERSIDE STADIUM
Follow the A66 – with the signs for Teesside from the A1 – into the centre of Middlesbrough and then be guided by the signs for the Riverside Stadium. There is a small amount of parking at the ground (in Car Park E that must be booked in advance by phoning the Middlesbrough ticket office on 01642 929421, priced at £8.50 per car).
It is around a 20-minute walk from Middlesbrough station to the Riverside Stadium. Turn left out of the main entrance onto Zetland Road and then left once more into Albert Road. Head under the railway bridge and then right into Bridge Street East, taking the next right into Wynward Way, where the stadium is located.
Official coaches will leave Motspur Park and Craven Cottage at 11.15am. They are priced at £30 for adults and £20 for juniors for season ticket holders and members, and £35 for adults and £25 for juniors for non season ticket holders and members.
The designated away pub at Middlesbrough is usually Doctor Brown’s (135 Corporation Road, Middlesbrough, TS1 2RR), which serves excellent real ale in addition to screening live sport. The nearby sandwich bar is also well worth a visit.
Opposite is La Pharmacie (72-80 Corporation Road, Middlesbrough TS1 2RF), a French style bar and grill/bistro that has previously warmly welcomed away supporters.
If you like your real ale, there are a number of local microbreweries to try includingthe Infant Hercules (Grange Road), Sherlocks, The Slaters Pick, The Twisted Lip (all in Baker Street) and the Devil’s Advocate (Borough Road).
Otherwise, alcohol will be available from the back of the away end inside the Riverside Stadium, including John Smiths Bitter (£3.60), Fosters Lager (£3.70), Strongbow Cider (£3.80) and Wine (£3.70).
