Getting to the MKM Stadium
Remain on the M1 until to Junction 21A before taking the A46 exit to Braunstone Frith/ Kirby Muxloe/ B5380. Keep bearing right at the fork in the road and follow the signs for the A46 Newark. You will soon have to merge onto the A46, whereupon you should follow it to after Lincoln. At the ensuing roundabout, choose the first exit for Humber Bridge and then at the third roundabout after about 21 miles on the A15 take the third exit for the M180/Humber Bridge and head along the M180 to Junction 5 before turning off following the signs for Hull/Hull Airport. At the upcoming roundabout. take the second exit onto the A15 and cross the Humber Bridge (you will need to pay a £2.50 charge) take the third exit, clearly signposted as ‘City Centre’. Turn left at the lights, head over the flyover, take a right at the next lights and the MKM Stadium is on your right side.
There are plenty of spaces to park your car in the stadium car park (priced at £5), but you should be aware that there can be delays of around half an hour getting away after the final whistle. There is also a park and ride service – which is clearly signposted off the A63, and a large number of city centre car parks, like the ones on Pryme Street and Freetown Way available, as well as the free parking near opposite the Hull Royal Infirmary.
Fulham supporters should be aware that significant disruption is expected due to the national train strike. If you do somehow make it to Hull railway station, the stadium is about twenty minutes walk away. Turn left at the end of the platform and then left into the bus station, walking through to the exit at the far end. Head past Tesco on your right, cross over Park Street at the traffic lights. Follow the blue signs to KC Stadium go along Londisborough Street, cross Argyle Street and head onto the pedestrian walkway and take bridges over railway lines to the ground.

Our friends at the Hull City Official Supporters Club have invited Fulham fans to their newly revamped home at the Tigers Trust Arena Bar – a dedicated supporter venue, with a wide selection of drinks which are the cheapest in the stadium complex. The Supporters Club raises funds for good causes every year and as an example they funded 30 football training day places for under privileged children – please give them your support if you can. The family friendly bar opens at 1:15pm and is located just 2 minutes walk from the coach drop off point, right next to the main car park.
The New Walton Club (243 Walton Street, Hull HU3 6JR) welcomes away fans as well but you will be charged a £1 entry fee. The club serves very good cheap beer in a friendly atmosphere with a separate area serving food and other refreshments.
