Newport County: Club Profile

After relegation from the Football League in 1988, the club went out of business – but has since come back with a bang. Promotion to the Conference came in the same season that we won the title; three years later, the Exiles were ‘back’ in the League.

Here’s a fun fact while you’re here too. By virtue of winning the 1980 Welsh Cup, Newport took part in the 1980-1 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup… and reached the quarter finals!

Ground Information

Away Supporters' Stand:
Bisley Stand


Facilities for Disabled Fans:
Disabled visitors to Newport County need to produce confirmation of the Disability Living Allowance in order for personal assistants to enter for free, while the admission price for the individual is the full rate.

For travelling supporters, you'll have to contact the club in advance on 01633 670690 if you wish to make use of one of the 55 parking spaces at Rodney Parade.

In the Bisley Stand where the away fans are located, there are six wheelchair bays at pitchside if needed.


Pre-Match Pintage:
If you don't fancy the Rodney Parade clubhouse, you have a couple of options. You can head east on Chepstow Road (that's towards England) as there is a Wetherspoons called The Godfrey Morgan down there. Otherwise, head west and back across the bridge into the centre of Newport. It's an experience, but there are three more Wetherspoons to be found, for example...

Travel Information – Distance: 157 miles

By Road:
If you're driving across the border, the motorway option is most likely the quickest way to do it. Head south on the A1(M) and take the counter-clockwise M25 around to the M4 interchange, before heading out west.

It's approximately 130 miles that you'll be wanting to remain on the M4 for, though that's if you opt to take the Second Severn Crossing. You can, of course, take the original crossing if you're feeling nostalgic - but you still have to pay.

At Junction 24, exit the motorway - it's the Newport East/A48/A449 exit. Take the second exit at the roundabout for The Coldra/B4237 and head through the outskirts of Newport.

From here, it's relatively straightforward; continue along the B4237 right into Newport, before turning left after around three miles – and before the river – for Rodney Road.

Parking:
Don't be surprised to find no parking at the stadium itself; it's located within a residential area and spaces are set aside for locals in the vicinity. That said, you might get lucky if you turn up early enough on streets where the scheme isn't enforced.

Your alternative, of course, is to use city centre car parks; one is located on the other side of the road to the railway station, for example.


By Rail:
Station: NEWPORT
Services to: LONDON PADDINGTON

The move from the Newport International Station to Rodney Parade has made it easier to make the journey from the train station by foot.

Exit the main entrance of the station (on the south side) and turn left onto Queensway, going towards the big roundabout.

Get yourself to the other side of the roundabout so that you are crossing the river bridge, taking the first right on the other side; Rodney Road.
