Departure Time: 04:15am
In total there are at least 16 coaches departing Home Park on Saturday morning. It is important that you board the correct coach for your booking and arrive in the designated pick up area. Supporters with coach tickets should have received an email or telephone call from the Home Park Ticket Office providing information on which coach to board.
If you have not received contact from the Ticket Office, please email email@example.com or call 01752 907700 between 9am-3pm on Friday and a member of the team will help you.
Please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to departure time. Coaches will be parked in the park and ride near the Devonport End. Coaches will display a number in the front window and you will need to board the coach number you have been allocated.
Argyle operates a family friendly coach service. For Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup game against Chelsea all fans boarding our official supporters coaches will be asked to present identification matching the name printed on their travel tickets.
If a supporter is under 16, they will need to be travelling with a parent or guardian.
Argyle operates a no alcohol policy, in line with government legislation. You must not board the coach with any alcohol and could be subject to a search prior to boarding the coach.
The coach will stop once for a maximum of 40 minutes for a comfort break en route to the destination.
The coach will park in the allocated coach parking at Stamford Bridge. There may be a 10 minute walk from coach to stadium on arrival.
After the game has finished, please make your way promptly back to your coach. The coaches will depart no more than 30 minutes after the game has finished.
Driving from The South
Cross the river at Wandsworth Bridge and head up Wandsworth Bridge Road. At the junction with New King's Road, turn right and then immediately left. This will take you up to Fulham Broadway. Turn right onto Fulham Road and the ground is 400 yards on the left. Parking is difficult very close to the ground.
Driving from The North, East or West
Use the M25 to Junction 15 and turn off onto the M4 towards London. Follow the M4 which becomes the A4 up to Hammersmith. Go over the Hammersmith Flyover and a further 1.5 miles before turning off for Earls Court. Go past Earls Court station and across Old Brompton Road, eventually reaching Fulham Road. Turn right at the traffic lights. After 600 yards, the ground is on the right. Parking is difficult very close to the ground.
Fans are advised not to drive to Stamford Bridge due to resident parking restrictions in the area around the stadium, especially on match days.
The Green Army should be aware that there are large-scale planned engineering works set to affect train services between Plymouth and Exeter this weekend, which supporters travelling by rail will need to factor into their journey.
We have put together, with the help of Great Western Railway, a guide for members of the Green Army who will be travelling by rail, which you can find by clicking here.
The nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway on the District Line. Take a train to Earls Court and change for Wimbledon-bound trains. There are two Overground stations near to Stamford Bridge, West Brompton and Imperial Wharf which are both about a 15-minute walk from the stadium. These are both on a direct line to Clapham Junction station, among others.
There are two bus stops outside Stamford Bridge on the Fulham Road. Fans can get to the stadium using the number 14, 211 and 414 buses. For further details, times, etc, please contact Transport for London.
