Away days: Stoke City
As the Swans get set to face Stoke City on Tuesday, we bring you a fan's guide to the bet365 Stadium to improve your matchday experience.
Stoke v Swans
Tuesday, September 18 (8pm)
Address: bet365 Stadium, Stanley Matthews Way, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 4EG
Up to 2,800 away supporters are housed in the South Stand at one end of the stadium, where excellent facilities are available and you can enjoy good views of the pitch. The home fans are renowned for producing a big noise, so it should make for a very good atmosphere.
You can leave your vehicle on the official club car park but will have to book in advance in order to do so.
Alternatively, for around £5, you can park at the industrial units on Great Fenton Business Park, which is a 10-minute walk from the stadium.
There is also street parking available on Grove Road, where you can walk to the ground along a footpath in around 15 minutes.
Stoke-on-Trent Railway Station is two miles away from the bet365 Stadium. You can walk there in around half an hour or take a bus or taxi.
The journey from Swansea takes around four hours on average.
Trains leave at 11.55am, 12.29pm and 12.54pm but there are no return journeys, so an overnight stay will be required.
