Saints travel to East London this weekend (Sunday 2nd April) for one of Rubén Sellés’ most crucial games in charge of the side. Here’s all you need to know ahead of making the trip to the capital to support the team against West Ham.
Venue: London Stadium (London E20 2ST), located in the south of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
If you’re travelling to the game on one of our coaches from St Mary’s Stadium, please note it’ll be leaving at 8.30am. There are some road closures in and around the city because of the Southampton Marathon so please check your route and leave plenty of time to travel to the stadium.
Directions upon arriving at London Stadium by coach
Our Saints coaches will park in the Visiting Supporters’ Coach Park 1A (as per the map below). This is only a short walk to Bridge 4 (B4). Supporters will come out of the gate and turn left, where there will be a zebra crossing, with Bridge 4 on the left again. There’s a lift for wheelchair users and supporters who are unable to walk far distances or use the stairs, just as you go through the security searches.
If you’re not travelling on one of our coaches and want to use the shuttle bus service from Stratford Station or Stratford International Station near London Stadium, you’ll need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
• Block, row and seat numbers
• Whether you wish to use the service from Stratford Station or Stratford International Station
As it’s an early kick off, we advise you to contact West Ham as soon as possible.
Blackwell Tunnel closed southbound
When travelling in London, be aware Blackwall Tunnel is closed southbound from Friday morning until Monday morning, so if you planned to use it you’ll need to find another route.
The northbound Blackwall Tunnel largely won’t be affected, although drivers are being advised to find another route for Saturday night.
