Car Parking & Restrictions

Where possible, we encourage supporters to walk, cycle or use public transport when visiting the stadium. Car Parking is limited in the area and roads can get congested on match days.

City of York Council have implemented parking restrictions on the local road network, as well as some residential streets.

A dedicated area within the Monks Cross P&R site has 400 spaces for match day users. Tickets need to be purchased in advance from the club’s ticketing website. A steward then scans your ticket in the car park. Parking is not permitted in any other local car parks, so we highly recommend pre-booking an official parking space. Stewards will be present in the area on match days to advise.

The Vangarde Shopping Park, does offer parking for up to six hours with a minimum spend of £5 in one of their stores or restaurants. Proof of purchase is required and you will need to give your car registration to one of their stewards. See here: https://www.vangardeshopping.co.uk/parking-on-match-days/
