Visiting Boundary Park

GETTING TO BOUNDARY PARK

Driving
Roads in Oldham and the surrounding areas, including the local motorway network, will be busier than normal on match day. Please check your route before you travel and allow more time for your journey.

The main road that will be affected by congestion prior to kick off will be the A571 Oldham Road between the hospital and Broadway.

Following the game Broadway (westbound) towards Elk Mill will have increased journey times.

Car Parking
Supporters on a match day should use the Hospital Car Park which has a cost of £5. A steward will be on hand to assist.

Parking is limited and fans are advised to use the postcode ‘OL1 2PA’ for their Satellite Navigation.

For those who wish to park on the Oldham Event Centre (Joe Royle Stand) facilities please use the postcode 'OL2 5BL'.

Tram
Fast, frequent and reliable services run to Oldham where you can then continue your journey to Boundary Park on foot or by bus.

Westwood is the closest stop to the ground, around a 20-minute walk away.

Journeys on the tram take approximately 20 minutes from Manchester Victoria.

Metrolink operates a zonal fare system with Westwood, Oldham King Street, Oldham Central and Oldham Mumps all located in zone 3.

The cost of a zone 1+2+3 ticket is £3.80 for a single journey or £4.20 for an off-peak day travelcard. This price covers travel across any of these zones, such as a journey between Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria.

You can now travel by tram with contactless cards and devices using the smart readers on stops. The stops where you touch-in and touch-out will show us the zones you have travelled through so that you are charged the correct amount.

For further information and a full list of zones and ticket prices, visit the dedicated Metrolink ticket zone page.

Tickets must be purchased before travel, with ticket machines located on every platform at all Metrolink stops.
