Town fans will be housed in the Bay Radio Terrace at one end of the ground, where 1,389 supporters can be accommodated. In addition, Morecambe have also made some seats for Town fans available in the Peter McGuigan Stand.
Entering the stadium.
For the seating area, Town fans should enter the stadium through turnstiles 3 and 4 and for the standing turnstiles 5 and 6.
On each area there will be one turnstile for cash and one for pre-paid tickets. There will be signs informing fans which one to use.

How to get there.
Exit the M6 at junction 34 and follow the signs for Morecambe. After around five miles you will reach a crossroads (with a McDonalds over on the right) where you turn right onto the Morecambe Road. You will then reach a roundabout, (where there is a Toby Carvery) where you take the first exit into Westgate Road (signposted West Promenade, Sandylands). Continue along this road for about one mile and you will reach the stadium on your right.
Morecambe Railway Station is around a 25-30 minute walk away from the Globe Arena. It is served by trains from Lancaster.
Parking at the stadium is for permit holders only so it is a case of finding street parking. If you continue along Westgate passing the stadium on your right, then on the other side of the railway bridge there is plenty of street parking to be had in the side roads on either side.
There is also parking at the Hurley Flyer pub for customers (£10).

The late comedienne Victoria Wood was born in Morecambe as was Eric Bartholomew who with his partner Ernie Wiseman became possibly Britain’s best-loved comedy duo. Look out for Eric's statue on the promenade.
