Heading to Middlesbrough on Saturday? Here's everything you need to know about an away day at the Riverside Stadium...
The travelling Addicks will be housed in one side of the East Stand, towards the south-east corner of the ground. The leg room is reasonsble and the view of the action is excellent.
There is not much option close to the ground other than a KFC and a Costa which are situated on the other side of the railway line. Further away, there are options in the town centre including McDonald’s and the like.
Inside the stadium, burgers, hot dogs, pizza, chicken Balti pies, minced beef pies and cheese and onion pasties are on offer, as well as the intriguing ‘Parmo in a bun’ – a local delicacy which consists of chicken in breadcrumbs, creamy sauce and cheese.
The Doctor Browns is the most popular pub for away fans and can be found at the bottom of Corporation Road, about a 10-minute walk from the ground, in the town centre.
For those who enjoy a micropub, there are five in Middlesbrough town centre - The Infant Hercules (Grange Road), Sherlocks, The Slaters Pick, The Twisted Lip (all in Baker Street) and the Devil's Advocate (Borough Road).
There is a bar inside the away end which serves pints of John Smith’s Bitter (£3.60), Fosters Lager (£3.70), Strongbow Cider (£3.80) and Wine (Small bottle £3.70).
Postcode is TS3 6RS. There is some parking available at the ground at a cost of £8.50 which needs to be pre-booked through Boro’s Ticket Office by calling 01642 929421. Otherwise, there are a number of private car parks available in the wastelands close to the ground which cost around £5. There is street parking available around a 15-20-minute walk from the ground.
The stadium is around a 15-20-minute walk from Middlesbrough Station. The quickest route is to catch a train from London Kings Cross to Darlington which takes around two-and-a-half hours, before changing for the train to Middlesbrough which takes a further half hour.
460 Addicks have purchased tickets for the trip to the Riverside. Tickets will be available from the ground on the day at the visitors centre situated next to the away turnstiles at the prices below...
