The Stashbee Guide to Premier League Matchday Parking



To the delight of football fans around the country, the Premier League 2021/22 season has just kicked off. With stands back to full capacity after COVID restrictions have loosened, demand for matchday parking is likely to soar - and, after a year off, there’s every chance that the already extortionate parking charges in and around the stadiums will as well.

If you want to support your favourite team without having to pay a fortune to park, what are the alternatives? Stashbee connects local Hosts who have parking spaces that they’re not using with football fans around the country who need a place to park. The result? Convenient and affordable matchday parking in a couple of clicks, just a stone’s throw from some of the country’s biggest stadiums.

Please note: All prices are correct as of August 2021.

Arsenal: Emirates Stadium, London

After a disappointing campaign last time out, the Gunners will be hoping that a few shrewd summer signings can drive this young, talented team up the table and into European contention. But what about parking?

Thanks to its Central London location, there’s very little parking at the 60,335-capacity Emirates Stadium itself - and parking in nearby streets is reserved for residents only. Some fans choose to park a little further out and then get the tube to the stadium. Cockfosters tube station is a popular choice as it has its own NCP car park that charges a very reasonable £6 per day. However, with only 336 spaces, you’d have to beat the matchday crowds to get a spot before lunchtime, let alone kickoff.

Booking parking near the Emirates Stadium with Stashbee is a convenient and affordable alternative, with parking available from just £8.40 per day.

Aston Villa: Villa Park, Birmingham

With Jack Grealish gone, the key to the Villains season is likely to be how long it will take for their new signings - Leon Bailey, Danny Ings and Emiliano Buendia - to gel.

If you want to see these exciting new signings in action for yourself, then you’ll need somewhere to park. Stadium parking at Villa Park (capacity: 42,788) is exclusively reserved for permit holders and, on match days, there are resident-only parking restrictions in operation in the area.

However, you can find affordable Villa Park parking with Stashbee for as little as £3.60 for an entire day’s stay. Just browse our listings to find a space within walking distance of the stadium for a quick, secure, and convenient solution.

Brentford: Brentford Community Stadium, London

The Bees have been promoted to the Premier League for the first time in their history. That’s exciting enough, but with Brentford coach Thomas Frank saying his team will not change the attacking style that got them promoted, fans can look forward to some action-packed, high-scoring games.

In terms of parking, there’s little on offer for fans at the 17,250-capacity Brentford Community Stadium, but there are a few official car parks in the area with prices starting at £12.50. With resident parking restrictions in full force on matchday, Stashbee is the simple way to find more affordable parking in Brentford.

Brighton & Hove Albion: Amex Stadium, Brighton

After a solid defensive display last season, it’ll be interesting to see how the loss of Ben White to Arsenal affects the Seagulls this time around.

Parking at the 30,666-capacity Amex Stadium for fans is a no-go. Instead, home and away fans are encouraged to prebook their parking at the club’s official parking sites for an eye-watering £15. Alternatively, there are three park and ride schemes available on match days. There is also the option of renting a private driveway or parking space near the Amex Stadium through Stashbee, with a full day’s parking starting as low as £4.80.

Burnley: Turf Moor, Burnley

Very little transfer business has taken place at Turf Moor over the summer, so fans of the Clarets will rest their hopes on striker Chris Wood continuing his prolific form from the tail-end of last season.

If you want to park near the 22,546-capacity Turf Moor, there is a car park at the nearby cricket ground that costs £6. There’s also a private car park available on Doris Street, off Belvedere Road, that costs £5 and is just 400 yards from the stadium. On match days, though, availability can be very limited, in which case, you can rent Turf Moor parking from local residents who live near the stadium, courtesy of Stashbee.

Chelsea: Stamford Bridge, London

The Champions League winners have added to their already formidable squad by bringing back world-class striker and Chelsea old boy Romelu Lukaku. He should guarantee the goals that were sometimes lacking last season.

While Chelsea has a good chance of winning the Premier League title this year, fans have zero chance of parking at the 41,631-capacity Stamford Bridge stadium itself. With several local resident-only parking schemes in operation in the area, you may have to leave your car a good distance from the stadium to find any on-street parking. What’s more, any parking you do find is likely to cost you a pretty penny. That’s why using the excellent nearby public transport links or renting parking near Stamford Bridge from a local resident are your best options, with spaces going for as little as £8.40 for the entire day.

Crystal Palace: Selhurst Park, London

The appointment of Patrick Vieira as the Eagles’ new manager could herald a promising new dawn for Crystal Palace. They have made a few good signings and, if Vieira can get Christian Benteke firing and Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze (once he recovers from his Achilles tendon injury sustained during spring training) playing at their best, then 21/22 could be an exciting season.

Although the 25,456-capacity Selhurst Park is a little farther out than some London clubs, there is still no available parking at the stadium itself. Most local streets are also subject to time restrictions and permit-only requirements. For that reason, even the club recommends that drivers use car park rental sites such as Stashbee to find affordable parking near Selhurst Park from just £5.40 for a whole day.

Everton: Goodison Park, Walton

After the surprise loss of superstar manager Carlo Ancelotti in the summer and the appointment of perennial Premier League boss Rafael Benitez, it’ll be interesting to see how the Toffees fare this time around.

If you’re looking for matchday parking, then the closest club-operated facility to the ground is the Stanley Park car park. Located around half a mile from the 39,572-capacity Goodison Park, a match-long stay costs £10. The Lifestyles Walton Sports and Wellbeing Centre is a 15-minute walk from the grounds and offers a slightly cheaper option at £7. However, with limited spaces available, you may be better served by renting parking near Goodison Park from one of our reliable local Hosts. With prices starting as low as £4.20 for the whole day, you’ll definitely save yourself a few quid.

Leeds United: Elland Road, Leeds

After becoming everyone’s second-favourite team last season with their buccaneering, high-energy football, Leeds United will be well worth keeping an eye on again this year. Although there has been a lack of new signings, Bielsa the magician is sure to pull something out of his hat.

As well as being one of the most historic stadiums in the Premier League, the 37,890-capacity Elland Road stadium is also one of the easiest to park at. There are several council-operated car parks based around the stadium that are priced at £6 for cars. There’s also a new park and ride scheme on matchdays operating from Temple Green to the stadium.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to risk being confronted with full bays at every turn, you also have the option of renting a private driveway or parking space near Elland Road with Stashbee, with prices starting as low as £3.60 per day.

Leicester City: King Power Stadium, Leicester

Losing their impressive centre back Wesley Fofana to a long-term injury will certainly be a cause for concern for Leicester City, defensively speaking. However, Leicester fans will be hoping that they have enough quality in attack this season to challenge their rivals for those Champions League places.

Parking in the vicinity of the 32,312-capacity King Power Stadium can be tricky, due to several new resident-only parking schemes near the ground. Instead, you’ll have to look further afield for street parking, which may leave you with a more than a 20-minute walk to the stadium. Alternatively, parking is available at the nearby Leicester Tigers Rugby Club on Welford Road. It costs £10 and is just a 10-minute walk to King Power.

Another possibility is to use the park and ride scheme, which runs from Enderby, though the service doesn’t offer a post-match pickup close to the King Power Stadium. Instead, renting private parking in Leicester from a local resident who lives nearby could be your best option, with the average cost of booking a space for a day running at only £6.60.

Liverpool: Anfield, Liverpool

Bolstered by the return of Rolls Royce Defender Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool will be looking to compete on all fronts this season. However, whether they can keep up with big-spending Chelsea and Man City remains to be seen.

The 54,074-capacity Anfield Stadium is one of the most famous in Europe, but that’s not thanks to its parking. There are a few spaces at Stanley Park, but increased demand means that those are now reserved for permit holders. You can park at the nearby Dockers Club, home of non-league side Waterloo Dock, for £5, while there’s also secure parking available for £10 at nearby Goodison Park.

With an extensive resident-only parking scheme in place around Anfield, the club advises fans to use public transport and the bus service from Liverpool City Centre. However, there’s also the option of renting a private parking space close to Anfield from a local resident via Stashbee, at an average price of just £8.40.

Manchester City: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

After winning the league and cup double last season, Manchester City will be looking to secure their domestic dominance and finally achieve their ambition of going all the way in the Champions League.

If you’re going to be visiting the 55,097-capacity Etihad Stadium on a matchday, then there are some spaces available in Blue Car Park H for £10. However, getting out after the game will take time. There’s a strictly enforced resident-only parking scheme in place around Etihad Stadium, so if you want to park on the street, you’ll have to leave your car fairly far away and walk.

Over the last few years, several unofficial car parks have cropped up in the vicinity of the stadium, costing between £5 and £10. However, as they are quite close, it can take a while to get back out onto the main road after the game. That’s why renting parking near the Etihad Stadium could be the perfect solution, and Stashbee’s rates in the area begin at just £4.20 for the whole day.

Manchester United: Old Trafford, Manchester

The signing of two world-class talents - Raphael Varane as a centre back and Jadon Sancho as a winger - will bring fans hope that the Red Devils could win their first Premier League title since 2012/13.

If you want to see that title push for yourself, then you’ll need a few Old Trafford parking tips. Luckily, there are plenty of different options available. You could park in Altrincham town centre and take the Metrolink to the stadium, which takes around 20 minutes. There are also plenty of small private car parks in the vicinity. Some are cheaper than others, with parking at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground costing £10, while the Salford Quays Lowry Outlet Mall costs £6 for four to five hours.

It’s the usual story in terms of on-street parking, with resident-only restrictions in place around the ground. However, that problem is solved easily enough by renting parking in Old Trafford with Stashbee, where booking a parking space for one day will set you back just £7.20.

Newcastle United: St. James’ Park, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

It was an up-and-down season last time for Newcastle, with some painstakingly defensive performances for much of the season eventually giving way to real attacking vigour. And it’ll be more of the latter that die-hard fans will be hoping to see in 2021/22.

With the 52,405-capacity St James’ Park Stadium located so centrally, there are a host of pay-and-display car parks in the vicinity. The NCP Newcastle on John Dobson Street has over 500 spaces that can be pre-booked, while there are also car parks on Fenkle Street and Thornton Street. However, at £8 for two hours, they’re not the best value.

A cheaper option is to book parking with Stashbee. You can rent a parking space near St James’ Park from a local resident and, with prices starting at just £5.40 to park for an entire day, it’s a convenient and affordable option.

Norwich City: Carrow Road, Norwich

After securing an instant return to the top flight, the Canaries will be looking to avoid the drop this time around and cement their status as a Premier League club.

The 27,244-capacity Carrow Road does not have its own car park and on-street parking in Norwich is limited, so fans will be best served by pre-booking elsewhere. Norfolk County Hall is one solution - it has around 2,000 spaces and currently costs £8. There are also a number of council and privately run car parks on Lower Clarence Road, Rose Lane, Rouen Road and Queens Road. However, for a reliable, hassle-free option consider booking parking space near Carrow Road with Stashbee for as little as £5.40 for the entire day.

Southampton: St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton

The loss of Danny Ings will hit the Saints hard, but after being 15 points clear of the drop last season, they will hope they have enough quality in their squad to maintain their Premier League status.

There’s very little parking available at the 32,505-capacity stadium itself. Located just outside of the city centre, some fans often opt to park in the city and walk the 15-20 minutes to the stadium. Parking will cost around £8, although the drawback is that roads around the city centre can become especially busy after a match.

To avoid that problem, some fans choose to park in the marina area, which is just 10 minutes from the stadium on foot and has the advantage of bypassing city centre traffic altogether. The Ocean Village complex in the marina has plenty of parking and costs just £4 for four hours. Alternatively, you could rent a parking space in Southampton with Stashbee (average price: £9 for the whole day!), which guarantees you a space, means you only pay for as long as you need, and gives you access to parking that’s very close to the stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London

With a new manager and a couple of promising signings, the Spurs could surprise a few people this year. If rumours of Harry Kane’s imminent transfer are true, the money the team makes from his departure will no doubt be reinvested wisely and, if players like Dele Alli and Son Heung-min step up to fill the void, then it could be an exciting season.

Parking at the 62,303-capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium itself is nonexistent. There’s also a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in operation on matchdays, preventing vehicles from parking on the street within one mile of the ground. On the perimeter of this zone, there are private car parks that charge up to £20 for the privilege, so they’re best avoided.

One solution is to park within the CPZ by renting an unused parking space from a local resident. With Stashbee, you can rent daily parking near the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium from just £9 to save you a few quid.

Watford: Vicarage Road, Watford

The Hornets earned an immediate return to the top tier last season after finishing second in the Championship. Having conceded the fewest goals in last year’s Championship, they’ll be pinning their survival hopes on a watertight defence.

The 21,577-capacity Vicarage Road has no parking itself but it is located just a stone’s throw from Watford town centre, making fair game of all of the multi-storey car parks dotted around town. The Church Car Park is a favourite among fans and is a 15-minute walk from the ground, while the Intu Watford Shopping Centre parking costs just £4.10 for four hours.

There are also some private matchday car parks available. Watford Grammar School for Girls is much closer to the stadium and charges £10 per car, as does the Chater Junior School on Addiscombe Road. Alternatively, you could find more easy, affordable parking even closer to the stadium by renting a parking space in Watford with Stashbee for as little as £5.40 to park for the whole day.

West Ham United: London Stadium, Stratford

After a breakout season last time out, fans will be hoping that the Hammers can deliver more of the same. With a host of attacking options available, there are plenty of goals in this West Ham team, but they might find it difficult to keep them out.

The bad news for drivers is that the 60,000-capacity London Stadium has been designated as a ‘public transport destination’, which means it’s very difficult to drive and park close to the venue. On match days, there is an extensive residential parking zone in place, which makes finding on-street parking within walking distance very difficult indeed.

In terms of off-street parking, Westfield Stratford City shopping centre is a safe bet. At £10 for three to six hours, it may not be the cheapest option but is just a 10-minute walk away. Alternatively, you could rent a private parking space or driveway near the London Stadium via Stashbee and find yourself paying far less.

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton

After a few very consistent seasons, the Wolves had a rocky run of things last time out. They lost their talismanic striker Raul Jimenez to a long-term injury and their longstanding manager Nuno Espirito Santo left the club. This year is therefore likely to be one for rebuilding, under the watchful eye of new manager Bruno Lage.

Parking at the 31,700-capacity Molineux is a relatively simple affair. Although there are a very limited number of spaces at the stadium itself, the club offers official parking on a seasonal and match-to-match basis in three locations around Molineux:

  • Birch Street WV1 4JW (8 minutes’ walking distance)
  • Redhill Street WV1 1NR (6 minutes’ walking distance)
  • Whitmore Hill WV1 4RU (2 minutes’ walking distance)

However, the stadium’s proximity to the city centre also provides plenty of other options. The city centre car parks can be handy but they do get very busy on Saturdays. To avoid long queues, consider parking a little further away and walk the remaining 15 minutes or so to the stadium. You can also rent a private parking space near Molineux via Stashbee, and even guarantee yourself a day’s parking for each home fixture for as cheap as £3.

Find Convenient and Affordable Matchday Parking with Stashbee

Take the hassle out of matchday parking by pre-booking space with Stashbee. You can rent private matchday parking spaces by the hour from local residents who don’t need them. Just enter the postcode or location of the stadium and browse our convenient parking spaces for rent in that area. You’ll save yourself time and money, so you can focus all your energy on supporting your team.
