Altrincham vs Solihull Moors, Tuesday 26th October, 7:45pm

Planning to visit Altrincham next Tuesday to watch your Moors meet the Robins in the Vanarama National League? Well here’s a guide for all you Moors fans with everything you need to know for your upcoming visit!

How to get your ticket? Football for a Fiver!

Alty are running a promotion for this game and have launched their latest initiative to fill the ground, “Football for a Fiver” for what they hope will be a memorable night. All tickets for those aged 12 and above will be on sale at only £5 - in advance and for pay on the day, too - for both home and away supporters. Under-12s will be admitted free of charge for the game.

First thing is first, you need a match ticket! We strongly recommend buying your tickets online in advance here to make your experience run smoothly and save a little time getting into the ground. You can find details on purchasing your tickets online on that link and please note that the match will be segregated and away fans enter via gates 5/6.

Altrincham do offer card and cash payment options to purchase your tickets on the gate. We do however strongly advise away fans to purchase their ticket in advance to save queuing and just make life that little be easier for you.

Coach Travel

Matchday programme

You may want to pick up a copy of Alty's matchday programme costing just £3. You can purchase it in the stadium but you can also purchase online with the programme being sent out to you the day before the game.

Food and drink in The J. Davidson Stadium

We know that some fans will want to get into the ground early. From pies to pasties, burgers, hot dogs, sausage rolls and chips, there are plenty of options to keep you fed and watered.

How to get to The J .Davidson Stadium?

It is pretty simple to be honest whether on foot, on the roads or via public transport.

Metrolink Trams and Trains

Alty are pretty fortunate to be right at the end of the tram line so you’ll find yourself within a short walk of the ground if you get on any tram from in and around Manchester that has ALTRINCHAM as the destination.

Altrincham resides in Zone 4 of the Manchester Metrolink network. If you're travelling from the city centre, you will need a day travelcard that covers zones 1, 2, 3 and 4.

No need to walk far to find a Metrolink stop, as the Altrincham line departs from Piccadilly train station itself.

If your train is arriving at Manchester's Oxford Road or Deansgate stations, then you can use the St. Peter's Square and Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink stops, respectively.

There are a whole host of trains that come through Altrincham also and you can find live departure boards along with a journey planner here. Coming from Manchester, allow yourself 45 minutes to get to Altrincham and then a short walk to the ground.

You can also plan your journey with Transport for Greater Manchester here which also provides bus timetables too.

Driving

The address and post code to put in your sat nav is The J. Davidson Stadium, Moss Lane, Altrincham WA15 8AP. It is close to the M6, M56 and M62 so whether you are coming from the north, south, east or west, they are not far from any of those major motorways.

A shout out to Alty's friends at Passenger Cars who offer a 24 Hour Private Hire Taxi Service that covers all of Trafford, South Manchester & East Cheshire.

On foot

From the heart of the town centre, the ground is between 10 and 15 minutes depending on your location. You ultimately need to find Moss Lane and which leads off one of the main streets in town. Follow Moss Lane past Stamford Park which you’ll find on the right…..when you’ll see the floodlights a bit further on and you will know you have just about made it!

Where to drink?

The Station hotel is popular among away fans as an ideal drop in right over the road from the train and tram station and is located just a 12-minute walk from the ground.

If that is still too far between rest breaks, then The King George is virtually next to the J. Davidson Stadium and is usually packed full of Robins fans.

Where to stay?

Alty are proud to announce a new partnership with the BEST WESTERN Cresta Court Hotel, Altrincham. They are within close proximity to the football ground and offer relaxing contemporary accommodation with a mixture of standard, executive and family bedrooms. Simply contact the hotel directly to make your reservation.

There is a Travelodge located in the centre of town with easy access to Manchester Airport for any international guests while the Marriott Hotel is situated just off the motorway complete with spa facilities and Tuscan-inspired dining.

What else can I do while in Altrincham?

Well, there’s plenty to do but much depends on what kind of activities you like. If you’re going for an all-out sporting trip, you should certainly check out Elite Ice Hockey League Manchester Storm’s fixture list. The Arena is just a short walk from The J. Davidson Stadium and the town centre and Alty highly recommend a visit.

Another hugely popular venue is the Garrick Theatre which is close to town. You can find their schedule here and Alty highly recommend taking one of their shows in. Whether it is Drama, Comedy, Musicals or Panto that you like, they have all the boxes ticked!

If you’re after something a little more peaceful and serene, Alty are pretty spoiled to have Dunham Massey and Tatton Park on their doorstep. Both are within a few miles of Alty and are two of the most beautiful National Trust parks in the country.
