On Saturday 21st September the Blue Army will be travelling to Wycombe Wanderer’s Adams Park, Hillbottom Road, High Wycombe, HP12 4HJ.
The Chairboys ground is at the end of a road through Sands Industrial Estate and has a capacity of just over 10,000. Blues supporters will be in the covered Dreams Stand behind one goal.
There is no cashpoint at or near the ground.
Getting to Adams Park
Adams Park is signposted from the M40 with brown football/stadium signs. Leave the M40 at Junction 4 and follow the signs towards Aylesbury on the A4010 (John Hall Way). Cross over three small roundabouts into New Road continuing down the hill to two mini roundabouts at the bottom. Turn sharp left at the first into Lane End Road and continue to the next mini roundabout at which turn right into Hillbottom Road. Adams Park is situated at the very end of Hillbottom Road.
Traffic is often very heavy around Adams Park on matchday so you are advised to allow plenty of time to get there.
There are limited parking spaces in the upper tier of the car park at the ground with a charge of £5 but leaving after the game can take a long time. There is also parking behind the JFC Building in Hillbottom Road at £5 and at several of the other units on the industrial estate in Hillbottom Road, leading to the ground. Otherwise there is street parking in the vicinity of the ground, but be warned traffic wardens patrol the area regularly, so you would be wise to park sensibly.
Blue Badge holders should contact Wycombe ticket office [01494 441118] to see if any of the limited complimentary spaces are available to pre-book, otherwise a standard £5 charge applies.
Trains run regularly from London Marylebone station to High Wycombe. The journey from Portsmouth to High Wycombe will take around three hours with a change in London. At the time of writing there were no scheduled engineering works.
Train details can be found on www.nationalrail.co.uk
High Wycombe station is approximately two and a half miles from the ground, so either grab a taxi, or Arriva operate a special football bus service from the station leaving at 13.05 and 14.05 via Eden Bus Station [13.15 and 14.15] , arriving at Adams Park at 13.35 and 14.35. There is a standard charge of £4 return per adult, irrespective of where passengers join or leave the service. Children under 11 are charged half price.
The return bus journey leaves Adams Park approximately twenty minutes after the final whistle. Other fans have reported that after the match the bus will only accept those with a return ticket.

Where to eat and drink
Because of the location of the ground there is a shortage of nearby pubs but just outside the away entrance there is a Fans Zone Marquee for away fans selling alcoholic drinks, with a nearby catering unit selling hot food.
The Hourglass pub 144 Chapel Lane, High Wycombe, HP12 4BY is nearest to the ground, about half a mile away. It serves real ale, but can get very full and doesn’t always admit away fans.
The White Horse pub, 95 West Wycombe Road (A40) HP11 2LR welcomes away fans, although it is definitely not a family pub.
The Half Moon, 103 Dashwood Avenue, HP12 3DZ is a comfortable, friendly pub that serves a couple of real ales and food and has big screens showing sports. If you do drive to this pub it is best to park in Ogilvie Road from where it is just over a mile to walk to the ground.
Inside the ground the usual football ground fayre of cheeseburgers, hot dogs, pies, pasties and sausage rolls are available from the refreshment kiosks.
