An comprehensive guide to Arbour Park, including parking, turnstiles and facilities…
Arbour Park, Stoke Road, Slough, Berks, SL2 5AY
Supporters are reminded that Monday night’s Emirates FA Cup tie v Slough Town is ALL TICKET. Therefore, there is no pay on the night – please do not travel without ticket. If you bought a ticket from the RAFC Ticket Office and marked it for collection on the night, these will be available from the away turnstiles.
If you have purchased a ticket for the seated section, please sit in the seat that has been allocated to you on your ticket. It is reserved seating.
Turnstiles will open from 18:15 and supporters of both clubs will be segregated. Rochdale fans will gain access via the Stoke Road south pedestrian entrance, and will enter the ground via Turnstile 3.
Slough Town are advising that due to the busy nature of the match, supporters should aim to arrive at the ground, where possible, by 7.15pm.
Dale fans will be able to use St Joseph’s Catholic School car park which is accessed via Shaggy Calf Lane. Please use postcode SL2 5HW on your Sat Nav.
The car park is free of charge and will be accessible from 6pm, with a short linked walk to your entrance to the ground.
Cars will be parked at owners risk and Slough Town FC is not liable for any loss or damage, however it may be caused.
There is a limited number of unreserved marked Blue Badge parking spaces at Arbour Park, again available on a first come, first served basis for Blue Badge holders.
Off street parking is extremely limited - however there are a number of car parks within walking distance. We would strongly encourage supporters to use the club supporters coach, car-share or travel by public transport where possible.
The ground is conveniently situated approximately half a mile from the train and bus stations where plenty of car parking can be found. Click the link for car parks and getting to ground information [http://www.sloughtownfc.net/how-to-find-us] It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to walk from the station and the car parks.
AT THE GROUND
Food and Drink
An outside bar will be in operation for Rochdale supporters, but due to FA Rules and Conditions, the bar will stop serving alcoholic drinks at 7.30pm, and all alcoholic drinks must be consumed prior to kick off. It is envisaged that this bar may become very busy. A food outlet will be in operation within the segregated Rochdale supporters' area.
Both male and female toilets are located in the outer perimeter area.
Arbour Park is a non-smoking facility with no smoking (or vaping) allowed anywhere within the ground. Smokers are required to leave the facility and make their way to the dedicated smoking area located outside the perimeter of the ground. You will be able to leave the ground and re-enter with hand stamping in place.
Please note, there are no cash machines at the ground and cards will not be accepted by the outlets or programme sellers.
