Travel & Parking
Make sure you plan your journeys and arrive at the AJ Bell Stadium in plenty of time before kick-off.
All of our fans can make use of the Trafford Centre tram link, which provides great access to the stadium via our matchday ‘Dine & Ride’ shuttle buses which run from the bus stop just around the corner (£1 return). It’s a great way to make the most of your day as you can leave the car at home (or park there for FREE), take advantage of the Trafford Centre’s fantastic food options, and then head over to the AJ Bell! You can pre-book this HERE.
Please note: We advise all supporters to park at the Regent Crescent car park 3 for any matchday parking.
Finally, if you’re travelling from Didsbury, Parrswood or Cheadle you can make use of the Stockport shuttle bus. This will run as follows: Mercian Way – East Didsbury at 1:20pm, Parrswood at 1:30pm, The Red Lion Cheadle at 1:40pm, and all pickups will be from the drop-off point 20 mins after the final whistle. This can be pre-booked HERE.
If you purchased one of our reusable plastic season cards it will be for collection at the Ticket Office.
The Macron club shop will be open pre-match right up until kick-off, as well as post-match. It’s the perfect opportunity to grab yourself the brand new Sharks replica kit and new look stash! You can also shop online, click HERE.
