AWAY FAN GUIDE | Bury

11 November 2016

Information for fans heading to Bury on Saturday...

What is the ground like?

Gigg Lane has been the home to Bury Football Club since its inception back in 1885.

In the 1990’s, all four sides of the ground were re-developed, turning it into an 11,840 all-seater Stadium.

Travelling to the Stadium by car

From the South: From the M6, take J21A onto the M62, signposted Leeds / Bolton / Manchester. At J12, exit onto M60 towards Leeds / Bolton Ring Road. At J17, take the A56 exit to Whitefield / Prestwich. At the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Bury New Road.
Continue on the A56 for approximately 3 miles and turn right onto Gigg Lane.

Postcode for SatNav: BL9 9HP

By Train

Bury Interchange is only a 10 minute walk away, and combines bus services with the tram network.

Supporters travelling by train are advised to depart at either Manchester Piccadilly or Manchester Victoria and use the Metrolink (Tram) service to Bury Interchange.

Where to park?

The Club does not provide general admission parking in the official car park.

Visiting Supporters are advised to use the Phoenix House Car Park, located on Brierley Street opposite the Stadium. Charged at £5 for cars, this is operated on a first-come, first-served basis. The postcode for Phoenix House is BL9 9HN.

There are a number of Blue Badge parking bays available in the Club’s official car park. Spaces are available to home and away supporters, but these are limited and offered on a first-come first-served basis.

Pre-match

Located at the far end of the car park is the Bury FC Social Club, sponsored by Pymgate Developments Ltd.

This is open to both home and away fans, with a dedicated non-members section which costs just £1 to gain entry to.

Once inside, there is a paid bar facility, warm food, snacks and the lunch-time kick-off live on the big screen (where scheduling allows). All this within a stones’ throw of the Stadium!
