The facilities in and around the stadium – and across the city – make Exeter an ideal road-trip for travelling fans who want to spend a Saturday or a full weekend away.
Exeter City's St James Park stadium is conveniently located in the heart of the city, with excellent walking, cycling and public transport links, which are now clearly signposted en-route.
The AddressSt James Park, Stadium Way, Exeter, EX4 6PU.
The StadiumSt James Park has undergone a £3.4million pound redevelopment project which has seen the construction of a new stand, changing rooms, covered away end, and associated facilities.
The new stand has been named the Stagecoach Adam Stansfield Stand in honour of fans’ favourite Adam Stansfield, who died eight years ago.
It also features a heritage display which has been created thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the work of the Supporters’ Trust history group and the Grecian Archive, in partnership with the University of Exeter.
Away supporters enter through the turnstiles on St James Road.
ParkingPlease note that there is no on-site parking for supporters at St James Park on matchdays. There is also very limited residential parking available locally.

The Audio For All team of volunteers has taken two big steps forward this season at Cambridge United thanks to new equipment and the creation of a proper base – the Accessibility Point behind the Newmarket Road end.
The descriptive service is offered to anyone who may benefit – not just the visually impaired – while the Accessibility Point offers support services for anyone with additional needs, be they physical or sensory.
The new audio equipment came via a donation from the club’s CUFCLottery https://www.cufclottery.co.uk/ , replacing kit which was donated second-hand when the service was launched in 2011. Fans using the service will hear the action de-scribed by a trained volunteer via a receiver and earpiece.
Sensory packs are available for fans of any age who would benefit from one.
These include noise-cancelling headphones, sensory balls, sunflower sticker to wear and a sheet of puzzles.
Information on the stadium’s Picture Pathway App is also available.
Audio sets and headphones must be returned to the Accessibility Point after use.
All of the above is provided by volunteers with the backing of the club.

We also need to congratulate the Cambridge United Youth side in securing their place in the FA Youth Cup Quarter-Final following the win against Sheffield Wednesday, I would like to wish them every success in the tie against Arsenal at the Emirates next week. At the time of writing there are 1500 supporters travelling to support the side. Thank you to everyone who is going to the game. Remember be Loud, Proud and United in your support. It is an exceptional turn out and reminds me of when we played against Arsenal at Highbury in the FA Cup Quarter Final. Many supporters travelled on the day to find out that the tickets had sold out for the match on their arrival and couldn’t get in.
This evening we welcome the supporters, officials and playing staff of Cheltenham to the Abbey Stadium. Thank you to everyone who has travelled to the Abbey Stadium for the match.
One of the most positive and encouraging initiatives to commence in the past twelve months has been the creation of the Cambridge Aces. All clubs look at improving the match day atmosphere and this group is definitely ticking all the boxes at the moment. It is important we build on the enthusiasm and energy of younger supporters and allow them the opportunity. Please give them your support and encouragement. Below is your chance to get to know learn more about them.
Hello, we are the Cambridge Aces. We set up the group last year whilst talking to the club about how to add more colour and atmosphere to the Abbey during matches, including crowd surfer flags for big games, such as the ones we had last year against Luton and recently against Ipswich, having flag bearers to wave the three flags we have at the front of the Newmarket Road End, aiming to reintroduce the flags on staffs we had during the Conference Days and organising displays before big games, such as “that” fixture coming up in April.
We are coming up to the business end of the season where the boys need our support as much as possible to help them achieve another season in League One. Where we belong! The atmosphere and ambiance during the Ipswich game was electric and we need to be like that every game to ensure the team can get their confidence back.
We are looking at raising money over the next few months to help fund a display that will hopefully incorporate the Main Stand as well as the NRE to welcome the team out for the first Cambridgeshire League derby since December 2001, and as a group we will be releasing more information in the coming months. We are still actively looking for anyone who would be interested in volunteering or getting involved with what we are trying to do at the Abbey so if you are wanting to be a part of this, or would like to give your opinion or share some ideas for flags with us, then please contact us through Twitter or Instagram (@cambridgeaces for both) or come speak to one of us on a matchday! You’ll normally find us around the NRE Fanzone before a game so please come say hi. We are incredibly excited and honoured to be doing this and look forward to helping turn the Abbey into a fortress again. Forever, United in Endeavour.
Thank you for reading.

This afternoon we welcome the supporters, officials and playing staff of Ipswich Town to the Abbey Stadium for the second time this season. It is a match with many supporters of both clubs either knowing or living close to each other. Many will even be family members, so I hope it is a good-natured affair both on and off the pitch.

Leave the M1 at Junction 37 and take the A628 towards Barnsley. Stay on this road (Oakwell is well sign-posted) and you will eventually see the stadium on your right.
There are a couple of car parks located around Oakwell, but they are mainly for permit holders only. Between the stadium and the Metrodome Leisure Centre is a car park for visiting supporters - the old Queens Ground - which costs £5 per car, £10 for a mini-bus and £20 for coaches.
TRAIN INFORMATIONBarnsley Interchange is about a 10 minute walk away from Oakwell. The station is served by trains running between Sheffield and Leeds/Huddersfield, and trains in both directions arrive every 25 minutes or so.
When exiting the train station turn left away from the town centre and head towards the bridge that the dual-carriageway runs over. Go under the bridge and turn left up the slip road and then take the first road on the right and head towards the Metrodome leisure centre at the top of the hill. Oakwell is now clearly visible.
