Southampton: Club Profile
Our first-ever meeting with Southampton came in August 2012 – and it ended in a convincing victory for the South Coast club.

Southampton Travel Information – Distance: 101 miles
A relatively comfortable driving distance from Stevenage, the journey to Southampton will take around two hours on a good day. The best route is to travel anti-clockwise around the M25 and join the southbound M3, which will take you a fair whack of the way.
At Junction 14, the motorway ends and dives off in two directions for the M27 or straight on into Southampton. It is the latter option you want, and will be signposted A33. Follow this road into the city over three roundabouts, the last of which will feature a Jury’s Inn at its centre.
Continuing on the A33, bear left for St Andrew’s Road and then again for the A3024 Northam Road. The stadium will certainly be visible by now and, after 0.3 miles, take the right hand turn for the B3038 Britannia Road. This road is shut on matchdays, however.
Away fans might find it hard work to park up at the stadium or in the surrounding areas. Options include the Marina area, which is around 10 minutes on foot. Alternatively, use city centre car parks or a Park and Ride facility at Junction 8 of the M27.
Station: SOUTHAMPTON CENTRAL
Services to: LONDON VICTORIA/WATERLOO
Southampton Central is the nearest station to the ground and is 1.2 miles on foot. There will be shuttle buses in operation, although walkers can do it themselves by leaving along Western Esplanade on the south side of the station.
Head up the hill to the traffic lights and go more or less straight across onto New Road. After 0.3 miles, continue onto the A3024 Northam Road, then right for Britannia Road after a further 0.3 miles.
