Tickets can be purchased by cash on a matchday at the Ticket Office without prior booking through the Kaizen Ticketing system, however these will be subject to an additional £1 charge across the top three categories (£12/£9/£7 respectively).

There is limited parking available inside the Archway entrance for OFFICIALS, PLAYERS, MEMBERS & DISABLED SPECTATORS ONLY. Parking for Members is on a first-come, first-served basis, other than for disabled spectators.
Stourbridge recommend that disabled spectators requiring a parking space should contact Club Secretary Clive Eades ([email protected]) 24 hours in advance, particularly if you are not expecting to arrive until shortly before kick-off, to ensure that a space is kept free.
Parking is also available on streets around the ground, including Mill Race Lane and Old Wharf Road (evening) either side of High Street, between the ground and the Ring Road. The nearest “Pay & Display” Car Park is on Birmingham Road, just off the Ring Road, approximately 5-10 minutes’ walk from the ground.
Stourbridge would like to remind spectators to show consideration to their neighbours when parking, and in particular please do not park in Westland Gardens, The Holloway or Stamford St.

The primary access to the War Memorial Athletic Ground for all spectators is via the ‘Archway’ entrance and turnstiles, located on High St, opposite ‘Vets 4 Pets’. Turnstiles usually open at 1.30 pm.
Please have your tickets ready for scanning at the turnstiles. Please note that no cash will be taken at the turnstiles. Tickets must be purchased online in advance or from the separate ticket office located inside the Archway Entrance.
