The best route to the stadium is to leave the M18 at junction 3 and take the first exit at the roundabout, then keep going to the roundabout at the bottom and take the first exit. Once you come off the motorway you will be able to see the stadium in the distance.
Doncaster Station is just under two miles away and buses are provided as detailed right to the ground. If you do have time on your hands and you fancy the walk (around 25-30 minutes) then as you come out of the station turn right and then keep straight on the road (the A6182 Trafford Way) and you will eventually meet the stadium complex on your left.
The cost of the parking at the stadium is £5.
Away coaches are parked directly behind the the One Call North Stand. This is at the cost of £20 and away fans can find stadium signs directing them to the correct turnstiles.
Alternatively, a number of companies on the nearby industrial park offer matchday parking at around £3-£4 per vehicle.
Please be aware that non of these unofficial car parks are endorsed by Doncaster Rovers and users park at their own risk. We would ask you to be considerate to local businesses within the area when parking.
MATCH DAY FACILITIES
The nearest cash machine is approximately a 15 minute walk at the Lakeside shopping centre.
One of Doncaster's away fan friendly bars is ‘The Leopard’, located only a four minute walk from the Doncaster Train Station 2 West Street, Doncaster, DN1 3AA.
The Leopard boasts a recently refurbished bar which offers a mixture of Lounge and Tap complete with table tennis and pool tables.
The live venue, bar and kitchen has received rave reviews from travelling away fans as they head through the centre of Town to the Keepmoat Stadium.
The Leopard offers a mixture of food from three courses to hotdogs and other snacks.
The stadium is on the outskirts of town, so the best place for food and drink when you get to the Keepmoat Stadium would be from the Stadium itself.
Belle Vue Bar
The Belle Vue Bar is an external bar situated on the outside of the West Stand, and welcomes supporters from both home and away clubs.
Among the selection of drinks available in both the bar and the concourse are Boddingtons, Becks, Budweiser, Kingstone Press, wine and a selection of soft drinks. A selection of hot food will be available from the Belle Vue Bar.
If you arrive at the ground early and like to take in the atmosphere within the stadium, why not try our recently upgraded concession stands which are sure to offer something to your taste.
There are also entertainment facilities away from the stadium who welcome both home and away fans, these include Lakeside Beefeater pub/restaurant which is situated within the Lakeside Shopping Village opposite the stadium. Within the shopping village there is also a KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut and Costa outlets. Across the lake there is also the Cheswold Pub, Vue Cinema, Frankie and Benny’s Restaurant, the Doncaster Superbowl (bowling, arcade and bar) approximately 15 mins walk from the stadium.
