The Stadium Managment Committee have released the following press releases, regarding car Parking and traveling to the Keepmoat Stadium.

To comply with the Green Travel Plan national environmental initiative, the Stadium Management Company will encourage the allocation of all parking spaces to multi-occupancy vehicles carrying three or more people (dependant on vehicle size). For details of public transport timetables please visit South Yorkshire Travelwise. If you wish to travel to us by car, we actively encourage you to consider car sharing.

A charge of £5 per car will be made to park in the stadium car parks and you will be directed to an available parking space by our stewards. Disabled car park spaces will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance of a matchday/event.

Yellow directional signs to the Keepmoat Stadium are in place on the approach roads and we recommend you listen to regular updates on TraxFM 107.1 traxfm.co.uk

Opening Ceremony – Sunday 17th December (Stadium opening time 1.00 p.m. – 4.00 p.m.)

An enhanced bus service provided by First Bus (Services 72 & 75) will be in operation. These routes will start and terminate at the Frenchgate Bus Interchange. A free ‘Park and Walk’ service will also be in operation from Doncaster Rovers former car park at Belle Vue. Stewards will direct you to a parking space in this area. Yellow directional signs will be in place and will provide the quickest route by foot to the Stadium.

Matchdays – 27th December, 1st January, 6th January and 20th January
