GETTING TO THE BROADFIELD STADIUM
Leave the M23 at Junction 11 (Pease Pottage). Take the third exit, following the brown signs for stadium, and the ground will be on your left at the bottom of Brighton Road – about two minutes drive from the motorway exit.
Fulham fans should be advised that there is no parking available at the stadium. There are a number of free parking options nearby which are signposted as approach the ground itself.
BY TRAIN AND BUS
Crawley Station is just over a mile from the ground. It is walkable in twenty minutes, but taxis from the station will cost around £6 and the Fastway number ten bus (which runs every ten minutes) will take you to Broadfield Stadium. To catch the bus, you need to be at Stop A at the Crawley Bus station, which is over the road from the train station.
Supporters can also reach the stadium from Three Bridges station by taking a Fastway 20 bus from Stop C or from Gatwick Airport by catching either the Fastway 10 or 20 southbound towards Broadflield or Bewbush by following the signs for ‘Local public buses/Metrobus’.
Fulham’s official Club coaches will depart Craven Cottage and Motspur Park at 4.30pm. Coaches are priced at£17 for adult season ticket holders and members and £10 for juniors. For non season ticket holders and members, they are priced at £22 for adults and £15 for juniors.
The New Moon (Brighton Road, Crawley, RH10 6SZ) enthusiastically welcomes away fans and offers a wide range of reasonably-priced drinks, with live sport on their TV screens.
The Downsman (Wakehurst Drive, Crawley, RH10 6DH) offers an excellent Indian-inspired food menu, available to eat in as well as take away, and a wide selection of drinks.
Away fans are also able to visit the Redz Bar at the ground located at the back of the Bruce Winfield Stand before the game – but not afterwards. Fulham fans should note that alcohol is not normally made available to away fans inside the stadium on a matchday.
