Deepdale is a cashless venue, however, supporters can use cash at the away ticket office.
Away supporters are located in the Bill Shankly Kop which is behind the goal at one end of the pitch.
The stand is quite steep for an EFL ground, but it allows for good views and atmosphere as everyone can feel close to the pitch.
Refreshments and facilities are available in the concourses under the stadium, however this can become busy when there is a large away following.
While the stand is modern, Deepdale itself holds the record of being the oldest stadium in the world which has been in constant use with Preston playing their first match there in 1880.
