Fan Info: Sheffield Wednesday

4 May 2018

Norwich City visit Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday in their final Sky Bet Championship fixture of the season (12.30pm kick-off).

Club Canary coaches depart from outside Carrow Road at 7am on the day of the game, but for supporters making their own way to Hillsborough, here’s our brief travel guide.

By train
Sheffield's railway station is around 3 kilometres from the stadium. From the station, you can take bus 53 to Ecclesfield/Parsons Cross or bus 77 to Chapeltown.

You can also reach the stadium with the Sheffield Supertram. The tram can be taken from several points in the city centre (e.g. Castle Square, Cathedral, or City Hall). Take the yellow line in the direction of Middlewood. Get off at Leppings Lane, from where it is a few minutes walking to the stadium.

By car
The ground is situated in the North West of Sheffield just six miles from the M1 and three miles from the city centre. The postcode is S6 1SW.

There is limited street parking available on matchday due to the residential nature of Hillsborough, with parking at the stadium permitted for permit holders only.

Food and drink
According to the footbalgroundguide.com, a pub that admits away supporters is the Railway Hotel on Penniston Road, which is the main A61 that runs by the stadium.

There are also a couple of pubs (the Norfolk Arms & The Red Lion) on the way into Sheffield on the A61 from the M1, where away fans often congregate.
