Preston North End
« on: June 01, 2016, 12:27:54 PM »
Preston North End Football Club,
Sir Tom Finney Way,

Main: 0344 856 1964
Ticket Office: 0344 856 1966
Disability Liaison Officer: 0344 856 1966 Email


From North, South and East: Exit M6 at junction 31. At the roundabout take the first exit (s/p Preston A59) onto the A59. At mini-roundabout after 1.0 miles, by the Hesketh Arms, take the second exit (s/p Ring road, Blackpool A583, Football Ground) onto the Blackpool Road A5085. Carry straight on for 1.2 miles, then filter left before the lights (s/p Town Centre, Football Ground) into Sir Tom Finney Way. The ground is on the left-hand-side.


There is currently no official club parking for away supporters, however, Moor Park High School offers parking for 5 per game. Away fans are welcomed and groups can be accommodated on request. Those fans who can't get places on the car parks are advised to use public transport, with the club joining forces with two local companies to provide dedicated bus services to Deepdale - Traveline's 'Soccerbus' and Stagecoach's 'Footyrider'.


The railway station is about 1.6 miles from the station to Deepdale. You should come out of the station and turn left in front of the Fishergate Centre, passing The Railway pub. Turn right at the T-junction. The road forks left and becomes Corporation Street, which you should ignore. Instead walk straight down Fishergate - the main shopping thoroughfare - After 0.75 miles the road becomes Church Street - with the Parish church on your right-hand-side. Carry on until you reach the junction with the A6. Cross over the road, the prison will be on your right-hand-side and a demolition site (formerly the County Arms public house) on the left. Turn left so the demolition site is now on your right - this is Deepdale Road. The Ground is on the right-hand-side after 0.75 miles. If you catch a taxi from outside the station it will cost approximately 5.


All buses from the train station go to the bus station. From there, numbers 5, 6 and 19 run a long Deepdale Road. The number 19 is the most frequent, running every five minutes or so. It will cost approximately 80 pence to get to the ground from the bus station but have plenty of change because the bus drivers ask for the exact money. The Soccerbus and Footyrider services, mentioned below, provide direct services to Deepdale on matchdays.

Eat & Drink

There are concourse food services at Deepdale (STFS, Kop, Town End, Invincibles) and refreshment options outside the ground.

The Sumners is the most popular for home fans, found on the corner of Watling Street Road and Deepdale Road. It is very welcoming for both home and away fans with plenty of room inside and a beer garden, if the sun is out. It opens at 11am on matchdays. An increasingly popular away supporters' venue is the Norman Jepson, directly adjacent to junction 31A off the M6 (turn left off the slip road; drive back under the motorway and take the first left).
Adjacent to the Norman Jepson is a Premier Inn, which has a sister outlet on Ringway in the city centre, just two minutes' walk from Preston railway station. On the way to the ground from the M6 (junction 31) you pass the Hesketh Arms, another welcoming pub. A favourite matchday venue but coaches and large parties must book in advance. A bit further away, on the A6 if you are arriving from junction 32, is The Withy Trees. Beer is served within Deepdale via our concourse outlets, but supporters are respectfully reminded that alcoholic drinks cannot be consumed within sight of the playing surface.
