GETTING TO THE VITALITY STADIUM
Take the A338 towards Bournemouth. Exit the A338 on the slip road signposted ‘Kings Park/Football Traffic’. Take the second exit at the roundabout into King’s Park Drive. The stadium and the entrance to the car park will be on your left. Anyone wishing to use the car park (£1 per car) should arrive by 1.30pm.
Harewood College on Harewood Avenue (ten minutes from the Vitality Stadium) offers free matchday parking as well as a swift exit onto the A338. Take a left out of the College entrance onto Harewood Avenue, another left onto Petersfield Road, left onto Holdenhurst Avenue and a final left into Castle Lane East (the A3060), which joins the A338.
Most fans will arrive into Bournemouth Central, which is about half an hour away from the Vitality Stadium on foot. You can catch a further train to Pokesdown (which is served by trains from London Waterloo) which is a fifteen minute walk from the ground, or take a taxi (£7-8). If you opt to walk from Pokesdown, you will need to turn right onto Christchurch Road before turning right into Gloucester Road after about 400 metres. The stadium at the bottom of the road.
Official club coaches will leave Motspur Park and Craven Cottage at 11am. They are priced at £17 for adult season ticket holders and members and £10 for juniors. Non-season ticket holders and members will be charged £22 for adults and £15 for juniors respectively.
The best options for Fulham fans are located in Boscombe. The Mello Mello Bar (677 Christchurch Road, Boscombe, Bournemouth BH7 6AA) shows live sport on several big screens and The Bell Inn (915 Christchurch Rd, Pokesdown, Bournemouth BH7 6AX) – directly opposite Pokesdown Station – is also away-fan friendly with the option to watch the early or late kick offs. Bournemouth town centre has plenty of places to drink, but Fulham fans may be asked to cover up colours, and it is around three miles from the ground.
Alcohol is available at the stadium itself with John Smith’s or Foster’s (£3.50) the main choices.
