HULL CITY


The KCOM Stadium, Sat Nav – HU3 6HU, has a capacity of 25,586 and is a trip of between 156 and 168 miles depending on which route you take, the A15 route is shorter but takes in the Humber Bridge and the £1-50 toll fee, the alternative route is via the M62.


We should be housed in the North East Corner which holds just over 2,500 fans, turnstile numbers 22-24. The views are good and unobstructed with plentiful legroom, the stewards are chatty and helpful, but you are set back slightly from the pitch.


Alcohol is available in the ground, Hollands are the local pie makers, no I have never had them either, if you fancy a ciggy at halftime, fans are allowed outside the ground.


No need to go searching for a pub as there is an allocated away bar at the stadium called Pitchside situated right next to the turnstiles. It is not the biggest bar but its comfy and Sky Sports will be on the box, but one downside is they call time 45 minutes prior to kick off. So, if you want to squeeze a late pint in you could try the Park View which is virtually opposite the ground and welcomes away fans.


Parking should be a breeze here, they have a massive carpark attached to the ground and its just £5, but it can be a bit of a bun fight getting out, so you can always try the Park & Ride which is readily signposted.


The stadium is around a 20-minute walk from Hull Paragon Railway Station with trains from the Manchester area and London Kings Cross.
