Official Coach Travel details for Southampton’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea have now been confirmed.
Saints visit Wembley Stadium to take on the Blues on Sunday 22nd April, with tickets going on sale from tomorrow.
Official Coach Travel with Princess Coaches will be available, priced at £23 per person, from Southampton, Eastleigh and Winchester.
The date coincides with the Southampton Marathon, Half Marathon & 10k, meaning a series of road closures in the city throughout the day.
The club has been communicating with Southampton City Council, Southampton Marathon organisers and Hampshire Police in order to deal with this, and would like to advise supporters of the following information…
(Details relating to Eastleigh and Winchester can also be found below)
Coaches will leave St Mary’s Stadium at 8am promptly.
Please be aware, you MUST have boarded your coach by 7.50am. Coaches will not be permitted to wait for latecomers, due to other events in the city, and must leave on time.
If you have not boarded your coach on time then you will not be able to travel. No exceptions to this will be permitted.
Please also note that there will be no parking possible at St Mary’s or in the surrounding areas on the day, so please ensure you make alternative arrangements for reaching the stadium. Details of a nearby drop-off point will be communicated as soon as they are available.
The only exception to this will be a small amount of accessible parking in the North Car Park. This must be pre-booked and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A pass will be provided in advance, permitting your vehicle to navigate through the road closures to St Mary’s. Details on how to book this will be made available here as soon as possible.
Coaches will depart from Chestnut Avenue, outside Barton Peveril, at 8.45am.
Please note the change from the usual Eastleigh pick-up point. This is due to the volume of coaches that will be travelling.
Coaches will depart St Catherine’s Park & Ride at 9am.
Please note the change from the usual Winchester pick-up point. This is due to the volume of coaches that will be travelling. Cars can be left at the departure point in Winchester.
Supporters will be able to purchase Official Coach Travel at tickets.saintsfc.co.uk when purchasing their semi-final match tickets.
