Travel Guide: Chesterfield vs Stags

13 April 2018

Stags travel to the Proact Stadium for the biggest game of the season so far against Chesterfield tomorrow. Here's a comprehensive travel guide ahead of the clash...

Stags have been allocated 2,740 tickets for the game in the North and East stands, all of which have now sold out. This is an all-ticket fixture and tickets will not be available to buy on matchday.

The 14.5-mile journey should take approximately 30 minutes by car. The postcode for the ground is S41 8NZ.

Turnstiles at the Proact Stadium open at 11.30am for away supporters, but fans are advised to arrive in plenty of time due to the high volume of people expected for the game. Stags' fans will use turnstiles North 1, 2, 3 and 4, and East 1 and 2.

There will be pyrotechnic and drug sniffer dogs, and searches will be executed on both home and away fans with wands. Chesterfield are advising fans not to bring bags unless absolutely necessary, as every bag will be searched. This has been a season-long policy at Chesterfield and will be done for both sets of fans.

Due to the sell-out crowd that Stags are expected to take tomorrow, there will be little room for flags. Fans must also sit in their designated seats, as per their match ticket.

Fans who wish to have a cigarette at half-time will be let out via the exit, but must keep their ticket to hand to get back into the stadium. Alcohol cannot be taken out of the stadium.

There is limited off-street parking nearby, but this is expected to be taken up quickly due to the high numbers of fans expected at the game. There is parking available in the town centre, which is approximately a mile from the Proact Stadium. Fans can park north of the stadium around Eastside Road and the A61 Whittington Moor roundabout area. Stags fans are urged not to park on Sheffield Road near the stadium.

Parking restrictions will be in place in the nearby retail parks, including the Tesco car park next to the stadium. Fans are advised to take notice of these restrictions and the 'residents only' parking signs on streets near the ground.

Stags' fans travelling by coach or minibus are advised to arrive at Doe Lea A617 for 11.15am for a police escort through to the the stadium.

Concourses will open around the ground at 10.30am, where fans can buy hot and cold snacks and hot and cold drinks, including alcohol. The behaviour of spectators will determine how long the concourses stay open for - they have been forced to close prior to a game in the past.

Before the game, the closest pub open to Stags' fans is the Victoria Pub in the town centre. The Victoria Club near the Proact Stadium will not accept away supporters.

The Sandy Pate Sports Bar, which can be found at the rear of the Ian Greaves Stand at One Call Stadium, will be open from 7.00am on Saturday, serving breakfast from 8.00am. Fans will be able to buy a five-item breakfast and a pint for just £5.50 from 8.00am.
