Things you should know...

  • St. James' Park will host nine Olympic Football matches from 26 July to 4 August.
  • Even though Newcastle and St. James' Park are used to holding large events, the Olympic Football matches take place during the week at times that may affect travel in the afternoon and evening.
  • As London 2012 is aiming for all spectators to travel to events by public transport, the transport arrangements for accessing the stadium, and areas around the stadium, will be different.
  • Car parks in the area will be closed and other parking and road restrictions will be implemented when matches are taking place.
  • Check the schedule for matches at St. James' Park
  • We want to give you as much information as possible, as early as possible. However, not all the finer details about transport operations around venues are available yet, such as information about spectator access to venues or restrictions to parking and road access. This is because some of the plans for the Games are still being finalised. The map on this page will be updated as soon as we have more detailed information available. Please check back soon, or keep up-to-date by following us on Twitter.
