Excitement is mounting and preparations are in full swing at Horsham ahead of this Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie.
Lots of plans are in place to help the day go smoothly, particularly concerning transport and arriving at the ground.
All supporters should aim to arrive at the ground by 2pm to help ease congestion and queuing. This will give you the best chance of finding a seat in either the main stand or
Lines & James family stand, as these will only be available on a first come, first served basis.
Parking is available at the RSPCA HQ, Wilberforce Way, Southwater RH13 9RS where a free shuttle service will take you to the stadium. The shuttle service will run from 1.30pm to 3pm, with buses leaving every five to ten minutes. A return shuttle will also operate at full-time. Please ensure that you arrive at the car park in plenty of time to get to the ground before kick off.
If possible, we recommend that you travel by public transport. The stadium is served by regular services (Metrobus 98 or 23) from Horsham bus station, train station and town centre plus Southwater village and Roffey. The standard fare from the town centre costs £1.70 but travellers can take advantage of the Metrobus app group save ticket where a group (up to five people) can travel for just £1.90 return. Visit here
for full Metrobus timetables.
Please remember that parking in the stadium car park will be strictly limited to players, match officials, visiting club officials and invited guests ONLY.
A small number of reserved spaces for blue badge drivers are also available on request. These are subject to availability and must be booked through the club office in advance (E: email@example.com or Tel: 01403 458854).
There is strictly NO MATCHDAY PARKING in Worthing Road, Denne Park, Salisbury Road, Horsham Golf & Fitness, or the access lane to and from the Stadium. Although there is a walking route along Worthing Road, pedestrians are strongly advised to travel by bus due to its busy nature, low-lit and narrow paths, and unprotected crossing points. Cycle racks can also be found at the stadium, but again, we strongly advise cyclists to leave their bikes at the racks adjacent to Horsham Bus Station and safely complete their journey by bus.
