Heading to the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday night? Get set for the trip to AFC Bournemouth with the below matchday information.

Please take the time to read through the below information before setting off for Vitality Stadium. Bournemouth's full visiting supporters guide can be found here.

Arriving by train

A large majority of trains arrive at Bournemouth Central Train Station, which is accessible to wheelchair users. Leave the station by the south exit (facing Asda) and turn left to head towards the main road.

Turn left again and walk straight up Holdenhurst Road for around 25 minutes, until you reach a roundabout at which you turn right into Kings Park Drive. Vitality Stadium is on the left.

The nearest train station to the stadium is Pokesdown for Boscombe, which is roughly a mile from the ground and around a 15 minute walk away.

This station is not currently accessible for wheelchair users.

Exit the station and turn right down the main Christchurch Road (A35) for 400m and turn right into Gloucester Road.

Follow signs for Kings Park to arrive at Vitality Stadium.

Please note the last train following the game is the 10.16pm from Pokesdown.


For free parking just a 10-minute walk from the ground, Avonbourne Academies (Formerly Harewood College) are open 3 hours prior to kick off on weekends and 1.75 hours before kick off on weekday matches.

If you are using a SatNav, please refrain from using the
postcode and instead use ‘Harewood Avenue’.

Please note this car park is locked 30 minutes after the full-time whistle.

Users are asked to ensure they keep to the maximum speed limits

Entering the Stadium

Please bear in mind that for supporters’ own safety, there will be 100% searches of every single supporter as well as bag searching/tagging. Please don’t bring a bag unless you absolutely need to.

Turnstiles at Vitality Stadium open 1.5 hours before kick off and supporters are asked to ensure they arrive at least 45 minutes prior to kick-off to avoid delays.
