TRAVEL: BY ROAD
From the A1(M) join the M18 Eastbound at Junction 35 (signposted Hull) or from the M1, join the M18 Eastbound at Junction 32. Once on the M18, leave at Junction 3 and take the A6182 towards Doncaster (the stadium is well signposted from Junction 3 and is about one and a half miles away).
You will pass a retail park on your left and then at the next island (which has the Lakeside Pub visible behind it) turn left onto White Rose Way. The Lakeside Shopping Centre is now on your right (the stadium is located directly behind the shopping centre).
At the next island turn right onto the industrial estate and after passing the Tesco distribution centre on your right, turn right at the bottom of the road and the stadium is further down on your left.
TRAVEL: BY TRAIN
Doncaster Station is just under two miles away and buses are provided as detailed right to the ground. Walking to the ground takes approximately 25-30 minutes. As you come out of the station turn right and then keep straight on the A6182 Trafford Way and you will eventually reach the stadium complex on your left.
There are just 1,000 car parking spaces at the stadium with 60 parking spaces reserved for disabled fans, which must be booked prior to matchday. The cost of parking at the stadium is £5.
A number of companies on the nearby industrial park, offer matchday parking at around £3-£4 per vehicle. Please be aware none of these unofficial car parks are endorsed by Doncaster Rovers and users park at their own risk.
Away coaches are parked directly behind the Corsan Northern Stand. This is at a cost of £20 (Minibuses can park for £10). Coaches need to follow the stadium signs.
