SKY BET LEAGUE ONE
SATURDAY 30 APRIL 2016
Over 3,000 Latics supporters are set to make the sold out trip to Blackpool's Bloomfield Road on Saturday 30 April, for the final Sky Bet League One away fixture of the season.
With Latics having sold out their allocation of 3,000 tickets in record time, no away supporters will be able to pay on the day and those without tickets are being urged not to attempt to enter the stadium.
TRAVEL: BY ROAD
Supporters travelling by car should leave the M6 at Junction 32, and follow the M55 towards Blackpool. The M55 joins Yeadon Way after approximately 12 miles, which takes traffic directly to Seasiders Way and Bloomfield Road Stadium.
Lonsdale car park, which runs alongside the West Stand, is available for use, costing £3.50 for up to 3 hours or £7.50 for up to 18 hours*. There are also several other pay and display car parks that surround the stadium.
*Prices may be subject to change. Please visit www.blackpool.gov.uk for up-to-date prices
TRAVEL: BY TRAIN
Blackpool South is the closest train station and is situated approximately a ten minute walk away from Bloomfield Road. Trains run directly to both Preston and Blackburn from Blackpool South. Blackpool North is linked directly to Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Preston, but is a short drive from the stadium.
Please be aware of potential disruption on routes between Wigan North Western and Carlisle using Virgin Trains. Please check cancelled and amended engineering works on nationalrail.co.uk
Planned engineering works between Wigan North Western and Preston have been cancelled meaning trains from Wigan North Western to Blackpool North will now run as usual.
FOOD AND DRINK
Festival Park is a five minute walk from the stadium, and has a number of food outlets. Inside the retail park there is a McDonalds, Frankie & Benny’s and the Swift Hound Flaming Grill. Elsewhere there are a number of pubs a short walk from the stadium on Lytham Road, including a Wetherspoons. A number of food vans can be found in close proximity to the stadium.
