Park and ride to be put in place for Stratford Town's FA Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town
FANS have been urged to make the most of a park and ride system that will be in operation for Stratford Town’s FA Cup first round clash against Shrewsbury Town next week.
Club chiefs have been working closely with Stratford District Council and revealed to the Herald that supporters who park at the leisure centre or Bridgeway multi-storey car park will be dropped off at NFU Mutual by Johnsons Coaches.
The capacity is set at 2,800 for the game, which is being shown live on ITV4 on Sunday, 7th November, and there will be no parking at the Arden Garages Stadium or surrounding area.
The club has also urged fans to make the most of public transport or find other means of getting to the ground.
As the Herald went to press yesterday, Wednesday, Stratford Town and Shrewsbury Town were close to agreeing prices for the all-ticket affair.
The Bards are hoping to put the tickets on sale by 4pm tomorrow, Friday.
The Herald can also reveal that there will be a dedicated fan zone at the Arden Garages Stadium for ticket holders as well as a large TV screen and food bars outside the ground.
To mark the huge occasion, the club are also going to be printing a limited edition programme to celebrate Stratford Town’s 80-year history and the 150th anniversary of the FA Cup.
