CAR PARKING Edgar Mobbs Way car parks open to the general public at 11:30am. CLICK HERE for directions
Please allow more time than usual to get to the stadium. Northampton Town are playing Bristol Rovers at Sixfields. BT Sport have chosen the Saints game for live TV broadcast - a decision which was out of the club's hands - meaning traffic will be leaving both stadiums at around the same time.
There will be a traffic management scheme in operation.
Post-match there will be a band on in the Rodber Suite, where players will also be situated.
The Saints strongly urges all supporters to use the club’s car parks. If supporters choose not to do this, then please park with due care and respect to the needs of local residents and businesses. Post-match traffic management will be in operation
