FANS URGED TO PARK RESPONSIBLY

4 August 2022

BURTON Albion is working with Burton Parish Council to encourage supporters to use official car parks on matchday and not cause problems for residents living near the Pirelli Stadium

As well as car parking at the stadium, fans are also able to park at the Ryknild Trading Estate which is a short walk to the turnstiles.

Fans are being deterred from parking in the narrow streets near to the ground, specifically around Wetmore Road, Perle Road and Brambling Cross Road as this causes access issues for residents, emergency vehicles, delivery drivers and pedestrians

The club is producing new signs that will back up the message by being placed at access points to these streets.

Paula Hough, Chair of Burton Parish Council, said: “We are asking Burton Albion fans to be respectful of residents' needs, and not to block the streets. These are terraced streets and there is not sufficient parking for the people who live there, and they can be easily blocked by people using them to park for the football games.

“We know the club provides enough parking and we would ask fans to please use the car parks provided, or to walk to the ground or use public transport.”

Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “We will be providing extra signage to support residents and we urge our fans to be good neighbours and to park responsibly and respectfully on match days.

“It’s easy to park at the Ryknild Trading Estate, where there are lots of spaces and car sharing is a great option.

“Please don’t spoil someone else’s day by parking irresponsibly on matchdays.”
