How to get there.

By Car

Leave the M1 at Junction 29 and take the A617 towards Chesterfield. At the end of the dual carriageway at the edge of the town centre, turn right onto the A61 towards Sheffield.

At the first roundabout turn left and the stadium is down on the right. For the main entrance turn right into Sheffield Road and then right again into the club car park.

Car Parking 

The club car park is for permit holders only. There is nearby street parking available on side roads off the Sheffield road, if you arrive early enough. Don't think about parking in the nearby Tesco store, as the car park is patrolled on matchdays and you may end up having your car towed away.

By Train

Despite previous reports elsewhere, trains will be running from Cleethorpes and Grimsby Town on Saturday.  

Chesterfield Railway Station is walk-able from the Proact Stadium, although it will take you between 20 and 30 minutes to walk to do so.

Where will Town fans be housed?

Town supporters are will be housed in the Rubicon Print Stand at the north end of the stadium, and in the Spencers Solicitors Community Stand.

Where to drink.

Alcohol is served within the concourses at the Proact Stadium.

A pub recommended for away supporters is the Rutland Arms on Stephenson Place in Chesterfield. If you arrive by train and walk towards the town centre it's just upon on your left. 

Celebrity Watch.

James Hill (TV personality), entrepreneur and winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2015, Sir John Hurt, actor and Ian Hyland, Daily Mirror television critic - all orginate from these parts.

The Town Kit.

 Our new Purple kit will be making its debut on Saturday.
