Joining us on Southampton’s longest journey of the season? Check out our handy guide to St James’ Park ahead of Sunday’s trip to Newcastle…
Address: St James’ Park, Strawberry Place, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 4ST
Telephone: 0344 372 1892
Nickname: The Magpies
Home kit colours: Black and white
The travelling Saints fans are housed in blocks LL7K, L7K, LL7L, L7L, LL7M and L7M at the top of the Leazes Stand. The teams access the pitch from the Milburn Stand.
Saints had an allocation of 1,600 tickets for the game, and will play in the club’s all-red third strip to avoid a kit clash.
Getting there by car
At the end of the A1(M) continue onto the A1 North and then the A184 towards Newcastle. Continue along this road, bearing left onto the A189.
Continue over the River Tyne on the Redheugh Bridge, from which the ground can be clearly seen. Carry on straight up the dual carriageway (St James Boulevard). This leads directly to the Gallowgate end of the ground.
While there is public parking available close to the stadium, Newcastle recommend taking a look at their dedicated travel hub – www.altoonativetravel.com – for a wide range of transport options.
Getting there by train
Newcastle Central Station is a ten-minute walk from St James’ Park. Walk west along Neville Street (A186) and turn right onto St James’ Boulevard.
The stadium is located at the top of the road and will become visible as you reach the junction with Bath Lane/Wellington Street.
Coaches will depart Coliseum Depot at 4.15am, St Mary’s Stadium at 5am, Eastleigh at 5.15am, Winchester at 5.30am and Chieveley at 6am.
