CRAVEN COTTAGE GROUND REDEVELOPMENT - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Fulham are currently undertaking the redevelopment of the Riverside Stand. The redevelopment is scheduled to take two seasons, with the new Riverside Stand due to open in 2021. During this time Craven Cottage will operate with three stands.
As such the stadium operation is different from previous years, please find important information about this below.
Supporters are reminded that whilst three sides of the ground will be in operation during the Riverside Stand works, the Putney End will have dedicated blocks for home and away supporters. There is no longer a mixed/neutral section at Craven Cottage.
Whilst the Putney End concourse area will be mixed, blocks P1, P2, P3 and P4 are designated home seating areas only; P5 and P6 are the designated away allocation.
There will be an appropriate security presence in the Putney End for each game to manage home and away fans sharing facilities. This will be based upon consultation between the club, police and relevant local authorities.
There should not be any away supporters in any of the home seating areas inside the ground. Away supporters identified in home areas will be ejected.
The Club enforces a policy against persistent standing. Persistent standing is not permitted at Craven Cottage. We understand that fans may stand during exciting moments in the game, but respectfully ask that all supporters make every effort to remain seated during play. This applies in all home and away stands.
Persistent standing impedes the view of fellow fans, particularly senior supporters, those with disabilities/access needs and younger children, and can lessen their enjoyment of the game.
Stairs, gangways and vomitories must be kept clear.
Parking close to the ground is really difficult. Matchday parking is pay and display but only for one-hour allocations, so finding parking away from the stadium is necessary.
The nearest tube station is Putney Bridge (District Line) and is one mile from the ground. Turn left out of the station and follow the other fans.
Trains take three hours to London Paddington, leaving at 1.22pm, 1.55pm, 2.22pm and 2.55pm. Coming back the only train from Paddington leaves at 10.48pm, getting to Swansea at 2.19am.
The top 10 shows to see in London are The Lion King, The Phantom of the Opera, Hamilton, Come from Away, The Book of Mormon, Les Misérables, Matilda, Mamma Mia, Tina - The Tina Turner Musical and Wicked.
