Ahead of the match, we encourage all supporters to take note of our matchday guide, which includes important information including parking, which turnstiles to use, and food and drink availability.
Getting to Arbour Park
You can find directions to Arbour Park here, but please note that parking arrangements will be significantly different for this match.
There will be no parking available at Arbour Park, except for guests, officials and Blue Badge holders who have contacted the club in advance.
Slough Town supporters will have access to three car parks – Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy (SL2 5AY), St Joseph’s Catholic High School (SL2 5HW) and Slough Crematorium (SL2 5AX). In all cases, there will be a charge of £5 per vehicle (cash only) with spaces available on a first come, first served basis with no reserved parking for permit holders.
At St Joseph’s School, Slough Town supporters should turn right upon entering the gate and be directed by a steward. Supporters will then need to walk around the ground to enter at either turnstiles 1, 2 or 4 (see below). Please note, the St Joseph’s School car park will shut at 1.55pm.
Grimsby Town supporters will have access to a limited number of car parking spaces at St Joseph’s School and will then make the short walk through to turnstile 3.
We would strongly encourage all supporters to car-share, use public transport or use one of the many car parks close to the town centre – most are a 10-15 minute walk away from Arbour Park. If you choose to park in residential streets, please keep an eye on restrictions and park with consideration to our neighbours.
Slough Town supporters who purchased in-person can exchange their receipts for match tickets on Saturday from 10am to 2pm at Arbour Park, or on Sunday between 11.30am and 1pm from a stall set up outside the front of Arbour Park.
This match is sold out, and no tickets will be available on the day. Segregation will be in place.
All turnstiles will open at 11.30am.
Slough Town supporters with e-tickets purchased online via TicketPass should have their QR codes, whether printed or on a smartphone, ready for scanning at turnstiles 1 and 2 (north-west and north-east corners, nearest to Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy)
Slough Town supporters with physical match tickets purchased in-person should enter at turnstile 4 (south-west corner).
Grimsby Town supporters should enter at turnstile 3 (south-east corner). Visiting supporters will have access to the east side of the ground, including the entire Berkeley Community Stand, and a fanzone outside turnstile 3.
Our matchday programme, Rebels Review will be available at all turnstiles (cash only), bars and the club shop (cash and card) for just £3.
Food & drink
We will have several options for food and drink on the day.
We are pleased to welcome back three food vendors which Rebels supporters will be familiar with.
Bombayish offers refined, authentic, and inventive home-style Indian street food to its customers, with dishes rooted in ancestral flavours. Olivero's will offer delicious stone-baked pizzas, and Papa Ji’s food truck will be selling delicious strips, burgers, wings, sides, loaded fries and more.
We are delighted to open our new outdoor bar for the first time, which will have Cruzcampo, Inch’s cider, Brixton Reliance pale ale, Fosters, wine, soft drinks, snacks and more.
In addition, the bar and kitchen area on the first floor of the West Stand will be open as usual to home supporters. There will also be another outdoor bar inside the ground, near turnstile 2. The tea bar on the ground floor of the West Stand will not be open.
Grimsby Town supporters will have access to hot food, a bar and a tea bar.
All bars will open at 11.30am and serve until 1.45pm. No alcoholic drinks will be served during the match or at half time, but non-alcoholic drinks will continue to be available.
Slough Town supporters will have access to the West Stand. Many of the seats are reserved, but all other seating is unreserved and available on a first come, first served basis.
Before the match, we are delighted to welcome back local acoustic musician and singer, Damian Delahunty. Damian has been an acoustic musician and singer for over 30 years. He has worked extensively as a session singer in various studios providing backing vocals and harmonies for original artists and making demo songs for the wider music industry. He will be playing from 11.45am to 1.45pm.
We are also delighted to welcome back local band The Small Strings. They are a band comprising numerous ukulele players, a rhythm section of bass and cajon, and several vocalists. They offer a quirky repertoire mixed from pop, rock and soul tunes, all of which have been given a unique ukulele twist. They will be playing after the game.
The club shop will be open as usual, and will have some special merchandise in stock, including t-shirts, mugs and A4 prints.
Arbour Park ground regulations
We would like to remind all supporters of the Arbour Park ground regulations and emphasise that anti-social or discriminatory behaviour of any nature will not be tolerated. Such behaviour will result in ejection from the ground. The club may impose a ban on any individual found to have committed such an offence. The ground regulations can be found here.
Any person found to have purchased a ticket for the wrong segregated area will be refused entry, or be ejected from the ground.
