Morecambe: Club Profile

After the apocalypse, all that’ll be left will be the insects and two fixtures between Boro’ and Morecambe scheduled in each year. Even though the 2019-20 campaign was cut short, the Shrimps leapt over Woking to become the side we’ve played most. It’s some feat; the Lancashire side often flirting with relegation from League Two, before we then only survived due to matters involving other clubs.

Since our first meeting in April 1996, we’ve walked hand-in-hand every step of the way since. At least it feels that way; taking a three-year gap between our promotions to the Football League and our time in League One out of the equation. Some things are just meant be, we reckon. Us and the Shrimps really are BFFs if you look at it that way…

Morecambe Ground Information

Ticket Info


Facilities for Disabled Fans

The Globe Arena isn’t that old, so benefits from a design that lends itself to being more friendly to fans with disabilities and impairments than the Shrimps’ former home. There are full facilities for fans of all abilities and disabled supporters are charged a concession price on entry. Carers, meanwhile, can attend free of charge if extra help is needed.

The club asks that you get in touch with them in advance with specific needs and queries you might have so that appropriate arrangements can be made. You can do this by calling them on 01524 411797 or emailing office@morecambefc.com.


Pre-Match Pints

The Hurley Flyer is just outside the stadium and isn’t the worst shout in the world – not least if you’ve made the long drive and just want to rest up with a tipple. If you’re a little more familiar with Morecambe, however, you may want to visit the tried and tested York Hotel near the old Christie Park.

It also apparently runs a shuttle bus service to the newer venue.

Morecambe Travel Information – Distance: 229 miles

By Road

There are numerous ways to get to Morecambe – including the more scenic (but longer) route across the Yorkshire Dales. To get there quicker, however, take the M1 to Junction 24 for the A50. Take the A50 across the M1/M6 corridor until you reach Stoke. At Stoke, head northbound on the A500 ring road to get to Junction 16 of the M6.

Join the northbound M6 and continue up to Junction 34 (A683 Lancaster). Exit onto the A683 and head into Lancaster. Follow signs for Morecambe and the A589. When you reach the Shrimp Roundabout, turn left onto Westgate and the ground is about one mile down on the right hand side – just before the second bridge.

Parking

The Shrimps don’t offer car parking themselves on a matchday. The nearest option is the Westgate Primary School (LA4 4XF), which is controlled by the school and costs £4 for a car. It opens two hours before kick-off and closes one hour after full time. Just be aware that it’s capacity is 260 cars; while it’s unlikely to be a packed attendance, it could be the last thing you need after a long drive if it’s full.

Limited on-street parking is available in the local area. Continue along Westgate with the stadium on the right until you get on the other side of the railway.
