  1. Thanks for sharing this. Can’t wait to get into our new home at Hop Oast. I’ve been paying regular visits from Day 1 with photo updates and love what has gone up, a home Club and ground to be proud of! ?⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  2. I hear it’s some way out from public transport so not a lot of good for people who use that method. Think I’ll stick with Dorking, so much more accessible.

      Shouldn’t be a problem at all Ray. It’s right on the direct bus route between Horsham town centre/station and Southwater, stopping off at the Park & Ride over the road and right outside the stadium.

      There will be buses running from the Park & Ride back into Horsham after evening games, so it depends where you’re heading to from there.

      The stadium itself will have 62 parking spaces, although on match days these will be reserved for home and visiting players and officials and for match officials. However, the Hop Oast Park & Ride is just the other side of the Worthing Road and is in easy walking distance of the stadium. We’re also right on a major bus route, so travelling to and from Horsham by bus will also be very simple.

  3. Disappointing that there are no spaces for spectator cars at the ground. I knew there weren’t going to be many spaces but hoped 20-30 might be available. I assume there is no charge to park in the P&R (and not to ride the buses) but I see there is a 2m height restriction which might impact on van users?

      We’re obviously limited by the footprint of the land we have Tim, so can only incorporate the number of spaces that allows. More would have been good, but at least we have the (free to park) Park & Ride only just over the Worthing Road. If we allowed some supporter parking in our car park, it could be a nightmare to manage with people coming in and having to be turned round when it was full! I don’t know how prohibitive the Park & Ride barrier is to be honest.

  4. The new stadium looks really good. Hope to visit for the friendly vs Crawley. I use the Hop Oast P & R a lot but am not sure where the stadium is in relation to this. Also if I bring an elderly relative is there any way to ensure there is a seat available?
    Look forward to visiting.
    Best wishes for the new season.

      Hi Nick and thanks for your kind comments. We look forward to seeing you at our game against Crawley Town on 20 July. We’re very close to the P&R as it’s directly across the Worthing Road from the new stadium. There won’t be any reserved seating unfortunately, so an early arrival is recommended. However, there will also be the (seated) ‘Lines & James Family Stand’ which will hopefully have space.

      Hi Chris. Sorry, we haven’t finalised these yet. All details will go out on the main Club website as soon as possible and when that happens, it’ll also be announced on our social media accounts.
