Fleetwood is on the Fylde coast, with Blackpool a few miles south on Lancashire’s coastline. The stadium is located on Highbury Avenue in the port.
Address: Highbury Stadium, Park Avenue, Fleetwood, Lancashire, FY7 6TX.
The away supporter entrance is post code FY7 6SF (42 Hatfield Avenue – shop / Nails)
Visiting supporters coaches should drop off and park up on the opposite side of the street to this address. Jim’s Sports Bar further along Highbury Avenue (and at the opposite end of the pitch from the away end) is generally open to away supporters.
Exit the M6 at Junction 32 and take the M55 towards Blackpool. Then leave the M55 at Junction 3 and take the A585 towards Fleetwood. On the outskirts of the town you will come to a roundabout with Blackpool and Fylde college on your left. Continue straight on towards Fleetwood but after the roundabout take the first left into Copse Road. After about a mile as you pass Fleetwood Fire station, branch left and turn left on to Radcliffe Road, as if you were going back on yourself. Then take the next right on to Stanley Road and the stadium is at the bottom of this road on the left.
There are a limited number of parking spaces available at the ground but street parking is permitted on the surrounding roads.
The most convenient mainline station is Blackpool North. The station is 7½ miles from the football ground so you’ll need to use one of the options below to complete your journey.
