Boxing Day 2023 is a repeat fixture of Boxing Day 2014, hopefully in nothing but name as we went down 2-0 that day to a promotion-chasing Bournemouth team. Here’s our away day guide.


Tickets are currently on sale to season ticket holders’ with over 700 loyalty points, keep an eye on when you can attempt to purchase your ticket here.



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 four hundred metres. The stadium at the bottom of the road.


Coaches will depart from Motspur Park & Craven Cottage at 10:30am on matchday. Coach tickets for Season Ticket Holders & Members are priced at £20 for adults and £15 for juniors. For all other supporters Coach Tickets are on General Sale priced at £25 for adults and £20 for juniors.


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.
