What's it like? Over 1,200 away fans are in the Northam Stand at one end of the stadium. The view of the pitch and facilities are excellent and leg room is spacious. The concourse televisions showing the game as it is played. It has a number of eating and drinking outlets.
Hotels - Hotels in the city centre include two Ibis hotels, a Novotel, Jury's Premier Inn, Holiday Inn, Mercure and many more chain and independent hotels and bed and breakfasts.
Pubs and grub - Yates on Above Bar Street (SO14 7FH) is on the way from central station while there are other options available. The city centre has plenty of pubs to choose from - The Prince of Wales (SO14 0QF) and The Rockstone (SO14 0JL) are two.
Sadler's Brewhouse & Barbecue (SO15 2AJ) has dozens of beers from its brewery in the West Midlands and serves American BBQ food, and is an easy 20-minute walk to the ground. Ocean Village (SO14 3TJ) also has a lot of friendly drinking holes.
There's a good mix of home and away fans in the Wetherspoons, The Standing Order, (SO14 2DF) in the city centre, but sometimes they only allow home fans in. The stadium is a good 20-minute walk away.
A small pub, the Chapel Arms (SO14 5GB), is a five-minute walk from the stadium, although it is mainly a home pub. To find it, go to the corner of the stadium that has the Saints Superstore on it and walk towards the city centre along the road that runs beside the river - the pub on your right. The Joshua Tree (SO14 5QN) is a ten-minute walk from the ground. Good for both home and away fans, it is one of the closest to the away coaches in Britannia Road on the local industrial estate.
A pub that's reopened is the King Alfred (SO14 0PD). It's a few minutes' walk from the stadium. Go towards the railway line to the right of the away end and go over the railway bridge - it's a minute away to your left.
Parking - There is no parking at the stadium for away fans and there are parking restrictions close by. Most fans head for the city centre car parks and walk 15-20 minutes to the stadium. The NCP city centre car park is £5. After the game, roads around the city centre are gridlocked, and it can take a considerable amount of time to get away.
Alternatively, park around the marina area (Ocean Village) - £5 for 6 hours - and walk ten minutes to the ground.
By train - The stadium is 1.5 miles from Southampton Station and takes 30 minutes to walk. There are signs to direct fans to the ground. A shuttle bus goes from Blechynden Terrace bus stop outside the station. One train leaves Swansea at 7.58am for the five-hour journey. Trains coming back are at 4.54pm, 5.15pm and 6.15pm.
