Sutton United Welcomes Visiting Spectators
Sutton United Welcomes Away Supporters
Is this your first visit to Sutton ? Well, it’s our first season in the Football League and we know our ground needs some work to stand comparison with most of the other stadia in the division but we are working on it. However, you will enjoy a warm welcome and find us to be very friendly.
Where Are We ?
There are a few Suttons in the country and even The FA has been known to mix us up ! We are 13 miles south of London, roughly halfway between the Wimbledon tennis courts and the Epsom Derby. The main entrance is on Gander Green Lane, which is a busy residential road to the west of the ground. This is the home end of the stadium. The north side adjoins Collingwood Recreation Ground. A footpath runs through this park to Collingwood Road, which is behind the east end of the stadium, although there are houses in between. The south boundary of our ground is the railway.
First team ground admission prices are £20 for adults, £13 for concessions and £6 for juniors. A stand seat is £5 more in each case. Children age 10 and under are admitted free. Tickets must be bought before entering the ground, and away supporters should check with their own club for arrangements in the lead-up to the game. Home supporters can buy tickets on line here , or, subject to availability, at the ticket office on a matchday. Cash admission at the turnstile is no longer possible.
Travel along the M25 to junction 8. Then north on the A217 for about 15-20 minutes. Stay on the A217 to the traffic lights with the Cheam Road (A232) and turn right toward Sutton. Do not turn into Gander Green Lane, keep going until you reach the Sutton one-way system and turn left into St Nicholas Way and then left again into the Gibson Road municipal car-park. It is then a relatively short walk down Collingwood Road to the away end of the stadium
On match days, the club car park in Gander Green Lane is for parking permit holders only. Away fans should park in Gibson Road, the local municipal car-park. It takes no more than fifteen minutes to walk from Gibson Road to the stadium and the route brings you in at the east end of the ground, The Collingwood Road End, which is the area reserved for away supporters.
It is recommended that visiting supporters use Sutton station, which is on the main lines out of Victoria and London Bridge and is at the top end of Sutton Hight Street, about 20 minutes’ walk from the ground. The pub near the station is The Old Bank and they will offer a warm welcome to visiting fans.
West Sutton railway station is adjacent to the ground. It is served by Thameslink trains via Wimbledon or Sutton but trains are less frequent. Come out of West Sutton station and turn right into Gander Green Lane and the ground is about 100 yards further along. Away fans should walk past the main entrance and after about 70 yards turn right into Collingwood Recreation Ground. Go all along to the far end for the away turnstiles.
We strongly recommend using public transport, and suggest that away supporters use Sutton station, which is about 20 minutes’ walk away. The Old Bank, near to the station, will offer a warm welcome to visiting fans looking for pre-match refreshment. Two buses between Morden and Sutton stations run conveniently close to our stadium: route 413 bus goes down Gander Green Lane, and number 80 runs along Collingwood Road. The ground can then be reached by taking the path through Collingwood Rec. London Buses are now cashless. Fares are a flat £1.50, and this includes multiple journeys within a one-hour period of the first "touch in" with a contactless payment card or Oyster card.

All of our league matches will be segregated, The Collingwood Road (east) end is allocated to away supporters. There is a covered standing terrace behind the goal and we are building a new stand with almost 300 seats but, for now, we have installed a temporary stand with over 100 seats, The away end has its own toilets and catering facilities.
We currently have spaces for 7 wheelchair users and we would ask anyone who needs to use this facility to book in advance (firstname.lastname@example.org) If any wheelchair user needs to park at our stadium, please let us know in advance and we will make arrangements to welcome you. For ambulant supporters, sorry but if you need to sit there are currently no lifts, you will need to climb a handful of steps.
Although there has been a general removal of regulations in society in general, there are still some protocols that we must follow as a football club.
The players and other football personnel are restricted to a Red Zone, this is essentially one end of the car-park; the pitch; the dressing rooms area and part of the east wing of the main grandstand where a temporary barrier has been created around a small number of seats to create an area socially distanced from spectators. Spectators are asked not to mingle with Red Zone personnel at any time; before, during or after the game.
Although the wearing of face coverings is no longer mandatory, we would ask all spectators to observe good practice in relation to minimising the spread of Covid-19 and we would ask you to read our Covid Spectator Charter before attending matches.
