There is limited parking available inside the Archway entrance for OFFICIALS, PLAYERS & DISABLED SPECTATORS ONLY.
NB. We recommend that disabled spectators requiring a parking space should contact Club Secretary Clive Eades (email@example.com) 24 hours in advance, particularly if you are not expecting to arrive until shortly before kick-off, to ensure that a space is kept free.
Parking is also available on streets around the ground, including Mill Race Lane and Old Wharf Road (evening) either side of High Street, between the ground and the Ring Road. The nearest "Pay & Display" Car Park is on Birmingham Road, just off the Ring Road, approximately 5-10 minutes' walk from the ground.
We would respectfully remind spectators to show consideration for our neighbours when parking, and in particular please do not park in Westland Gardens, The Holloway or Stamford St, near to the ground, out of consideration to our neighbours.
ACCESS TO THE GROUND
The primary access to the War Memorial Athletic Ground for all spectators is via the ‘Archway’ entrance and turnstiles, located on High St, opposite ‘Vets 4 Pets’. Turnstiles usually open at 1.30 pm for afternoon kick-offs, and 6.30 pm for evening kick-offs.
Please have your tickets ready for scanning at the turnstiles. Please note that no cash will be taken at the turnstiles. Tickets must be purchased online in advance or from the separate ticket office located inside the Archway Entrance.
Access from the turnstiles to spectator areas will be via the passageway to the rear of the Glassboys Bar. Access will NOT be allowed via the front of the social club and players’ entrance to the front of the dressing rooms.
The Church End turnstiles (opposite Holy Trinity Church) may also be open at certain matches when a large crowd is expected. Where applicable, details will be announced in advance via the website and social media.

The Glassboys Bar is located at the Church End of the ground, immediately to your left as you enter through the Archway turnstiles. The Bar is open before, during and after every home game and we offer a warm welcome to all visiting supporters and, indeed, neutrals.
An outside bar is also in operation on matchdays and is located next to the Snack Bar behind the Church End goal.
The Club Shop is located inside the red cabin - the former catering unit - selling Stourbridge FC replica shirts, leisurewear, scarves, hats, badges and other souvenirs.

Spectators are not usually segregated at matches, and are free to circulate around the ground as they wish. Please note also that access to the 'Shed' End of the ground is now possible via the cricket side of the ground, opposite the main stand.
Should segregation be deemed necessary for any match, arrangements will be announced in advance via the website.
