A sold-out away following will be backing Saints at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Just under 3,000 supporters will witness Ralph Hasenhüttl’s first Premier League game in charge.

Visiting fans are housed in Blocks 119-123 in line with the corner flag between the Ninian and Family stands. For more information click here.

Getting there by car

If you're travelling to the Stadium by car, access from the M4 is easy. Leave the M4 at junction 33 and take the A4232 towards Cardiff/Barry. Exit the A4232 on to the B4267 turn-off, signposted towards Cardiff City Stadium. The stadium will appear on the horizon as you approach the turn-off. 

Follow the slip-road off the B4267 and take the first left at the roundabout - the Stadium will be on your right-hand side. Turn right at the second set of traffic lights and follow the appropriate signage for your dedicated parking space.

N.B. Parking at Cardiff City Stadium is limited. Parking spaces are predominantly designated to Season Ticket Holders, with the remaining spaces allocated on a first come first served basis. There are alternative parking areas within a short walking distance of the ground.

Getting there by train

The railway station in closest proximity to Cardiff City Stadium is now Grangetown Station which is approximately a 5-10 minutes walk away. Grangetown can be reached from Grangetown by taking a connecting train from Cardiff's main station, Cardiff Central.

There are direct trains from London Paddington, Birmingham, the south coast and south-west England, with connections from the rest of the National Rail network to Central Station which itself is around half an hour away.

You will need to head south west of the Principality Stadium towards the Riverside area of the town, then follow signs to the Stadium.

Coach Travel

Official Coach Travel provided by Princess Coaches can be purchased for this game, priced at £20 per person with a £2 discount for Season Ticket Holders. Coaches will depart St. Mary’s Stadium at 09.15, Eastleigh at 09:30, Winchester at 09:45 and Chieveley at 10.15.
