Useful info for Chesterfield trip

27 September 2013

General tips and travel advice for our match at the Proact Stadium.

We have put together a comprehensive matchday guide for tomorrow’s eagerly-awaited local ‘derby’ at arch-rivals Chesterfield.

The clash at the Proact Stadium is already a sell-out. Supporters, who are not in possession of a valid match ticket, should not travel to Chesterfield.

DON’T FORGET: The match commences at 1.00pm.

For further updates and information, you can follow @SpireitesPolice on Twitter.



Supporters are advised to allow extra time for their journey, as we have been informed of roadworks at the Tesco/Casa Hotel roundabout.


Supporters should be aware that parking around the Proact Stadium is limited on matchdays.

Parking restrictions are in place on the adjacent retail park at the Asda, Tesco, Halfords, Wynsors and Iceland stores. Supporters should avoid parking here.

Furthermore, supporters are advised not to park in Nelson Street or Stanforth Street, as a ‘Residents Only’ parking scheme is in operation.

However, parking is available on a first come, first served basis at SimplyGym, which is directly opposite the stadium. Parking here will cost £4 per vehicle.

Supporters can also park at KM Furniture store, which is just a few minutes walk behind the away stand, for a small fee.
