By road

Fans making the journey on the road from One Call Stadium are advised to get on the A1 from the A617, before following the A14 to Cambridgeshire. Take exit 34, and then continue on B1047 to Newmarket Road in Cambridge which will lead you to your destination.

By rail

Making your way by train means a three-hour trip with two changes, at Nottingham and Ely respectively, with a return adult ticket costing £55.50.    

The two-mile walk to the ground will take around 30 minutes or you can catch a taxi, which costs around £9.


There is limited parking available on the streets surrounding the stadium, or alternatively some off-road car parking is free behind the ground, on Coldhams Lane.

The Wrestlers pub along Newmarket Road offers great Thai food or another option is The Tram Depot, which is a venue known for its character and broad selection of drinks. It is just a 20-minute walk from the ground.

Last time we met

The last meeting between the sides was a frustrating draw at One Call Stadium in September 2016. No one could find a winner on a wet and windy day in north Nottinghamshire, in a game of few chances.

Total distance

The total distance between One Call Stadium and Abbey Stadium is 105 miles when you go via the A1, which takes two hours and five minutes, approximately.
