Arsenal supporters travelling to the Manchester City match on Thursday May 4th are advised that there is no street parking available around the City of Manchester Stadium. There is a residents parking scheme in place covering a wide area which is strictly enforced. Anyone parking in these streets will be clamped and/or fined.
Supporters are advised to use the MCFC Accredited Car Parks around the Stadium, where there is match day parking available on a first come first served basis.
Alternatively supporters are advised to use public transport wherever possible. The City of Manchester Stadium is around 20 minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly Stadium, or there are frequent shuttle buses operating to and from the Stadium.
Parking Update for meeting the Away Coaches
As you may or may not be aware there are Controlled Parking Zones in and around Avenell Rd which restrict you from leaving your car for more than two hours. The CPZ's are in operation from Monday to Saturday 08.30 - 18.30.
For Saturday matches we will try to make use of the Club's car park next to the Arsenal shop in Avenell Rd, unfortunately this will not be possible for midweek fixtures.
With the help of Welcome Break Services we have acquired parking facilities at London Gateway Services free of charge and with no restrictions. London Gateway is just past Junction 2 Northbound of the M1 (the services are accessible both north and southbound).
We hope to use this service for the remainder of this and future
seasons. To make use of this service or to use the Club's Car
Park please ask for more details when booking your coach travel.
