Oxford By Road/Parking

The following is from the footballgroundguide site;

https://www.footballgroundguide.com/leagues/england/league-one/kassam-stadium-oxford-united.html#adirections-and-car-parking

The Kassam Stadium is quite well signposted from the main routes into Oxford, with brown football signs pointing the way. The stadium can be found in between the Oxford Science Park & Blackbird Leys Estate. From the A423 Ring Road, take the A4074 towards Reading. After the roundabout with Sainsbury's on one corner, take the left turning signposted Cowley/Wallington/Oxford Science Park and you eventually come to the ground on your left.

Car Parking

There are 1,600 car parking spaces at the stadium itself, which are free. However, the car parks tend to fill up fast, so try and arrive early if you can (at least 75 minutes before kick off). An additional 400 car parking spaces are now available at the Ozone cinema and bowling alley complex adjacent to the stadium, which are also free to use. John Attwood a visiting Gillingham supporter adds; 'when arriving at the stadium, ignore the first stadium car park entrance that you come to and go up to the second entrance as the first will have you parking at the "open" end. There is a roundabout by the second entrance, which will take you back to the first entrance if the other half is full. I was also heavily delayed in trying to leave the car park after the game as there were only two exits available'. If you do end up arriving late at the stadium and find that the stadium car parks are full, then don't get tempted to park on a grass verge as you may well end up with a parking ticket for your trouble. There is also some street parking available along Grenoble Road (going away from the stadium), just make sure you use the marked bays. There is also the option of renting a private driveway near the Kassam Stadium via YourParkingSpace.co.uk.

Oxford Where to Drink

The following is from the footballgroundguide site;

https://www.footballgroundguide.com/leagues/england/league-one/kassam-stadium-oxford-united.html#apubs-for-away-fans

There are no pubs in close vicinity to the stadium There is a bar in the nearby Holiday Inn Express Hotel, but this no longer allows in away fans. Kim Rockall informs me; 'There is a cinema and bowling alley complex located adjacent to the stadium, called Ozone. Inside the bowling alley there is a bar, which also has Sky television and a fast food outlet'. There is also on the complex a Chinese buffet restaurant called Oxy Oriental, as well as a fish and chip shop called the Ozone Plaice..

Dave Langford a visiting Northampton Town fan tells me; 'I found a small local pub called the George Inn, situated in Littlemore just off the ring road (not far from Sainsburys). It had a number of television screens showing the early kick off and we were served fairly quickly. The Oxford fans at the pub made us very welcome and the landlord suggested that I leave my car in the pub car park for the duration of the match as the stadium was only a ten minute walk away. There were assorted pies and sausage rolls available. All in all a good find.' Also in Littlemore is the British Legion Club (OX4 4LZ) which also welcomes away fans. You are also able to park your car there for the duration of the game. Please note though that for certain high profile games (on Police advice) that both the pub and Club do not admit visiting supporters.

There are also a couple of other traditional pubs located in Sandford-on-Thames, which is in walking distance (20-25 minutes) of the Kassam Stadium or a five minute drive. These are the Catherine Wheel on Henley Road and the Kings Arms on Church Road. The Catherine Wheel offers local real ales and cider, plus hot food snacks on matchdays. Whilst the Kings Arms is in a splendid location on the banks of the River Thames and is part of the Chef & Brewer chain.

Otherwise, alcohol is also served within the ground in the form of Carlsberg Lager, Tetley's Bitter, Guinness and Somersby Cider (all £4). Although for some high profile matches the Club opt not to sell any.

WHAT’S IT LIKE FOR AWAY FANS

The following is from the footballgroundguide site;

https://www.footballgroundguide.com/leagues/england/league-one/kassam-stadium-oxford-united.html#awhat-is-it-like-for-away-supporters

Away fans are normally housed on one side of the North Stand, towards the open end of the ground. This stand may be shared with home supporters, or if demand requires it, then the whole of this stand can be allocated providing just over 5,000 seats in total. The facilities within and the views of the playing action are excellent, and there is also good leg room. The atmosphere within the ground is not bad, with the home fans in the Oxford Mail Stand doing their best to raise it. There is not much around the ground in terms of pubs and eating establishments, although refreshments inside the stadium are okay, although if there is a large away support, then it can take quite a while to get served. Refreshments on offer include: Cheeseburgers (£3.80), Burgers (£3.40), Hot Dogs (£3) and a selection of Pies produced by Chunk of Devon; Steak & Kidney, Steak & Ale, Chicken & Mushroom, plus 'Pie of the Week' (all £3.50) as well as Traditional Pasties (£3.30), Cheese & Onion Pasties (£3.30) and Sausage Rolls (£3). With one end of the ground being open, there is always the remark 'of watch my car' as another wayward shot flies into the car park behind. On the whole, I found the Kassam Stadium to be an enjoyable and a largely friendly day out.

Derek Fennel a visiting Blackburn supporter adds; 'the stewards at the Kassam seemed very helpful and accommodating which led to a feeling of watching the game in a relaxed frame of mind. There was great vocal support from the home supporters who really got behind their team'.
