Matchday parking around 1st Cloud Arena
Supporters are advised that the club has no on-site parking provision at 1st Cloud Arena, with parking currently only available in public areas around the surrounding industrial estate at the ground.
The club is continually seeking to secure further parking provision, and would be willing to open discussions with anybody owning premises within the vicinity who may help us alleviate the volume of traffic our rapid progression is generating.
Supporters are respectfully reminded not to park in private areas belonging to businesses who are operating on matchdays, not to block entrances, take note of signage and please avoid damaging grass verges.
The vast majority of businesses on the estate are fully supportive of the growth of the football club, so we would like to ask supporters to please acknowledge their support by giving due consideration to where they park.
As an example, Lee Tiffin, of Black Sheep Fitness Academy, contacted the club to congratulate us on our success to date and expressed his desire see the club continue to thrive. However, he revealed a minority of supporters had been ignoring cones and signage protecting his private car park, and were therefore restricting his operations.
South Shields FC prides itself on being a community club – please help us in being good neighbours to the surrounding businesses.
There is parking space available across the industrial estate, including on the opposite side of the Metro bridge. We merely request that you are mindful of where you park so as not to restrict access to or affect the operations of businesses in the area.
The club would also like to highlight that Bede Metro Station is only a short walk away from the ground and we would also encourage the use of the Metro system on matchdays.
Thank you for your magnificent support and we sincerely hope you can make it to 1st Cloud Arena for Saturday’s Buildbase FA Vase tie with Marske United. Your backing is so crucial to us.
